European CBI and RBI programmes offer greater security and benefits than many other equivalent schemes and are now among the most popular worldwide. The specifics and costs may vary, but the principle is the same: the applicant must invest money in property or businesses, buy government bonds or make a cash contribution, in exchange for citizenship or residency within the EU.

Some EU member states do not offer citizenship outright to investors but instead operate ‘golden visa’ programmes that reward investors with residence permits that can eventually lead to citizenship.

Sovereign has selected the best European programmes and has prioritised those jurisdictions in which it also has an office. In these locations we are able to offer a ‘one-stop-shop’ for RBI and CBI applications, providing assistance in submitting an application without the need to outsource any aspect to a third party. We will also be able to indicate the expected time frames based on the specific circumstances and the nature of your application.

In addition, in those jurisdictions where an RBI or CBI scheme requires an applicant to purchase a property, we have signed exclusive agreements with real estate companies and developers to ensure that our clients have access to the best selection of properties, whether they plan to live in them or to retain them for investment purposes.
