How Long Does It Take for a Permanent Resident to Get Citizenship?

For one reason or another, many citizens of the UAE hope to gain citizenship in other countries. Whether you travel a lot for business and require quick and easy travel solutions or you are moving to another country for good, having citizenship for another country can be extremely useful. But how long does it take for a permanent resident to get citizenship in a different country? This is one of the main questions from clients who are looking to obtain citizenship. 


As you might imagine, the time it takes to obtain citizenship from different countries varies depending on where you are looking to gain citizenship. Different countries have their own rules and stipulations in place when it comes to granting citizenship, so you should opt for a country where you’re likely to have success. Below, you can learn more about the citizenship options that are available for certain countries, as well as how the team at UNO Capital can help to provide a solution. 


What You Need to Consider Before Applying for Citizenship 


There are several factors that need to be considered by clients before they apply for citizenship in a certain country. For a start, you need to bear in mind the benefits of having citizenship in certain countries over others. For example, citizenship to a country that’s part of the European Union will offer you certain benefits when travelling through the continent. With this in mind, you should consider carefully what country you want to apply to when it comes to obtaining citizenship. 


How Much Does It Cost to Get Permanent Citizenship? 


Similar to how long it will take to obtain permanent citizenship in a particular country, it will also cost more or less depending on where you want to go. The cost of citizenship can be quite high in general, which is important to remember for several reasons. For a start, you’ll want to make sure that there’s a high chance of your citizenship being accepted. Read on for further information on the citizenship stipulations and waiting times for different parts of the world. 


Caribbean Citizenship 


The Caribbean is one of the most popular destinations for people who are looking to get a second passport. In 1984, St Kitts and Nevis was the smallest sovereign state to offer citizenship on the basis of the applicant having good character and posing no threat. Generally, citizenship to one of the states in the Caribbean starts from $100,000. The benefits of Caribbean citizenship include visa-free travel to over 125 countries and much more! 


European Citizenship 


Western Europe is a hotspot for those looking to get a second passport for a myriad of reasons. The privileges, rights, and legal protection that are offered to citizens of the EU are why many of our clients have the destination as their first choice for a second passport. Getting a European passport can be quite complicated, but it’s possible if handled by the right team, such as ours at UNO Capital. We can ensure that you get citizenship for a European country in a smooth manner. 


Malta Citizenship


Malta has been one of the most popular destinations for people to get a second passport for many years. For a start, the Maltese passport is the 8th most powerful in the world, giving citizens visa-free access to 186 countries. The process of getting a Maltese passport is broken into three parts and includes a donation to a Maltese fund and institution, as well as a significant real estate investment. The benefits offered by Maltese citizenship make the country hard to turn down.
