  此生不系舟  :何妨移民这些岛国 面朝大海春暖花开

7月21日和7月27日的推送,我们给大家介绍了关于移民尤其是投资移民的一些基本知识,那么问题来了,现在哪些国家有最直接而且便宜的移民计划呢?今天我们给大家推荐几个面朝大海、鲜花锦簇的国度。

 

《007》和《谍影重重》等电影告诉我们,行李箱装满现金和多本护照可以最快地逃离一个地方。但对于普通人来说,我们并非要做詹姆斯·邦德,移民只是为了更好地生活和发展事业。ONSAEMI海外投资移民公司及其合作伙伴,可以帮大家通过投资移民的方式,获取理想的护照。

 

如今,每年有大批的有产阶层人士为了生活和工作便利,拿到第二本、第三本护照,成为真正意义上的“世界公民”。ONSAEMI海外投资移民公司负责人KWON先生介绍说,就像做生意讲究分散投资一样,其实移民这件事也讲分散投资,这在中国、俄罗斯、中东等国家和地区是一个趋势。

安提瓜和巴布达、格林纳达、马耳他、荷兰、西班牙等国家,都已经施行新的投资移民方案,或者允许投资移民,或者直接出售国籍。但是,随着移民市场越来越火热,人们对相关政策的透明度和责任问题,要求也越来越高。

 

欧盟委员会信息社会和媒体事务委员维维亚娜·雷丁(Viviane Reding)就曾明确提出,国籍不可以被出售。但是,有经济能力的人们很幸运,一些国家仍然允许通过投资渠道获取公民身份,而且没有居住限制。某种意义上说,这就相当于买卖国籍。

马耳他

= Malta =

南欧小国马耳他,在移民政策上却很胆大。马耳他宣布外国人投资65万欧元即可获取护照、并且没有居住要求,由此成为欧盟国家中最便宜的投资移民国。多伦多法学教授阿耶莱·萨沙(Ayelet Shachar)坦言,马耳他的投资移民政策在欧洲国家中表现突出,呈增长趋势。马耳他总理约瑟夫·穆斯卡特(Joseph Muscat)也承认,该国宽松的投资移民政策确实有效吸引到了国际投资者的资金。

 

不过,马耳他这一移民政策遭到欧盟其他兄弟国雨点儿般的批评。为此,马耳他做出了一些调整,适度提高了门槛。比如原来没有居住要求,现在要求必须在马耳他居住一年,门槛费也提高了少许。

马耳他作为英联邦和欧盟成员国,一旦获得马耳他护照,意味着可以畅行欧洲。不仅如此,马耳他与美国等数十个国家有免签协议,持有马耳他护照者进出北美也十分便利。

 

马耳他被誉为“地中海的明珠”,自然风光得天独厚,拥有众多名胜古迹、豪华的海景别墅,整个国家都是旅游胜地,而且当地社会福利完善、教育条件也好。2015年《孤独星球》最佳旅游城市推荐中,马耳他排名世界第五。

伊丽莎白二世女王在与菲利普亲王庆祝钻石婚时,选择曾留下二人甜蜜回忆的马耳他“二度蜜月”;安吉丽娜·朱莉和布拉德·皮特在法国完婚后,也是到马耳他度蜜月;贝克汉姆不论每个赛季有多忙,总想抽时间去马耳他度假,他在自传中说,他爱马耳他,爱马耳他的生活,马耳他是他年轻时美好的记忆。

 

马耳他毗邻意大利,秉承地中海饮食结构,意大利通心粉和披萨是重要主食,炖兔肉是当地名菜。

塞浦路斯

= Cyprus =

塞浦路斯也为投资移民提供了很直接的途径。根据调整后的移民计划,参与重大集体投资的申请人,投资金额为200万欧元,投资总额高于1250万欧元。如果是同一家庭成员分别进行投资,可以共同拥有一所住宅,但每个申请人须购买的房产总价达到50万欧元。这相当于“团购移民”。

 

但是有投资机构指出,塞浦路斯的移民政策比较复杂,而且投资额分阶段性有所不同,比较难于操作。

位于地中海东部的塞浦路斯,是欧洲与亚洲交接处的岛国,2004年加入欧盟,传说是爱神维纳斯的故乡,文化方面具有浓厚的希腊色彩。当地生活水准不俗,平均每两个人就拥有一辆小汽车,每年有六成居民出国旅游。

 

当地民风淳朴热情,人们喜食烤肉烤鱼,海鲜套餐和肉类套餐都是传统菜,当地人也热爱咖啡,咖啡馆一般都是全天营业。塞浦路斯也是音乐和舞蹈之国,歌舞都具有叙事诗的风格。

此外,一些国家不提供直接投资移民的方案,但通过一定的投资,可以换取居留(没错,移民和居留是两个概念,大家不要被市场上天花乱坠的说辞忽悠),也就是一般意义上所说的“黄金签证”。当然,取得居留之后,可以通过当地的相关法律进行归化入籍等也是可行的。包括葡萄牙、西班牙、比利时、澳大利亚、英国等,都有相关法案。

 

最后,我们要提醒大家,移民是一件需要慎重的事,移民市场上不乏失败的例子。比如中美洲国家伯利兹( Belize)的移民计划2002年失败;爱尔兰(Ireland)2001年叫停;格林纳达(Grenada)2001年叫停,2014年重启;黑山2010年暂停。所以,大家在规划移民时,一定要选择专业的移民机构,详细考察当地环境,选择最适合自己的方案。

CYPRUS CITIZENSHIP PROGRAM

 

Cyprus is one of most stunning natural environment of the world; Cyprus is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, off the coasts of Syria and Turkey. Cyprus is the third largest and third most populous island in the Mediterranean.

On 1 January 2008, the Republic of Cyprus joined the eurozone. We suggest the Cyprus Citizenship Program will offer our customers a lot of benefits.

BENEFITS OF THE CYPRUS CITIZENSHIP PROGRAM

  • * Revisions CIP february 2019 

  •  

  • In an effort to further regulate the Cyprus Investment Program (CIP) and to secure its continuity, the Cyprus Council of Ministers has approved on the 13th of February 2019 revisions on the program.

  •  

  • The new changes aim to contribute to the research and development as well as to provide for social contribution.

  •  

  • The changes include the following:

  • Applicants who were rejected by another EU country shall be excluded from the CIP;

  • The investment should be maintained for 5 years following the date of naturalization, instead of 3 years;

  • During the 5-year period the investor will be able to change his investment, provided that a consent will be granted in this regard by the Ministry of Finance;

  • Shipping will be included in the investment sectors, while investing in government bonds shall no longer be available for the purposes of the CIP;

  • A planning permit shall be mandatory for properties under construction;

  • A donation of €75,000 for research and development shall be mandatory;

  • A donation of €75,000 to the land development organisation to fund affordable housing schemes shall be mandatory;

  • Due diligence and background checks shall be carried on by a specialised foreign firm on each applicant (the firm has not been hired yet).

 

PROCEDURE

In order to qualify for the the Cyprus Citizenship Program, the applicant should have at least 18 years old and can include also his spouse and his dependent children if they are up to 28 years. Once we receive the final approval, the main applicant and his spouse should visit Cyprus for one day to take the Oath of Allegiance in person. This does not mean you have to live all the time in Cyprus. We only recommend real estate option. The total all inclusive costs (Govt fee + Due diligence + Lawyer fee etc) for one person should come around approx EUR 2,00 Millions. Additional costs apply for dependants and family members. Furthermore our consultants will guide you through the whole submitting process for the Cyprus Citizenship Program.

COSTS

Donation into a state fund and mixed investments:
By choosing this option, you must deposit €2 million for the purchase of shares and/or bonds of the State Investment Company and make a donation of at least €500,000 into the Research and Technology Fund. It is mandatory to maintain the shares and/or bonds for a period of three years.

 

Direct investment:
By choosing this option, you must make a direct investment of at least €2 million in the purchase of real estate property or companies, either financial assets. The mandatory hold period is as above – minimum of three years.

 

Note: An investor can qualify for cyprus citizenship program if he is a shareholder or owner of a company that is managed in Cyprus and if the company has been conducting business and paid Cyprus taxes for the past three years and the amount of taxes paid and/or business services utilized totals of at least 500,000 Euros per year.

In the case that company employs 5 or more Cyprus citizens, the amount is decreasing to 350,000 Euros, and if the company employs 10 or more Cyprus citizens, the amount is further decreased to 200,000 Euros.

Beside all above options, there will be government legal processing fees between 60,000 and 100,000 EUR and other additional costs for each dependant. Although it is not required that the foreign national establishes his residence in Cyprus, the national will not be qualified for Cyprus tax breaks until the national spends more than 183 days in the country in one calendar year. We do highly recommend the real estate option due to recent banking bailout crisis.

CITIZENSHIP-BY-INVESTMENT SCHEME ‘THERE TO STAY’ IN TIMES OF RENEWED ECONOMIC GROWTH

 

Traditionally, citizenship has been a legal status entailing the registration of an individual, including coming from a third country, with the government of a given country and his/her acceptance into that country’s political framework through legal means. Citizenship ‘by exception’ is the citizenship acquired in exceptional circumstances by an individual from another country, whereby the requirements normally prescribed by the citizenship laws of the given country for ordinary naturalisation are waived fully or partly. One way of acquiring citizenship by exception consists in investing a certain amount of money into the country whose citizenship is sought. Such a possibility exists in various areas of the world, including within the EU, in certain Member States such as in Cyprus.

 

Cyprus’ citizenship by investment programme seems to be quite successful, if it is taken into account that it has yielded over €2.5 billion in revenues for the government since 2013 – the year the scheme was relaxed. Back then, new routes to fast-track citizenship were created in order to combat in particular the effects of the economic and financial crisis which hit Cyprus in March 2013. The Cypriot authorities had clearly indicated that they wanted to maintain and enhance the scheme, as a way to further encourage foreign direct investments and doing business in the country, notwithstanding any EU pressure. It now clearly appears that the scheme is ‘here to stay’ as Cyprus has now exited the macro-economic adjustment programme with international lenders since March 2016, has entered a new era of economic growth and is seeking as a result to create durable and at the same time flexible real market opportunities for potential investors.

 

On 13 September 2016 the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Cyprus further revised the scheme providing an overall more favourable framework to foreign investors and their immediate relatives. The minimum amount to be invested has now dropped from €5 million to €2 million through several routes, such as direct investment in immovable property, development and infrastructure projects on the island; the acquisition, incorporation or participation in businesses operating in Cyprus and lawfully employing at least five Cypriots or EU citizens; direct investment in alternative investment funds and other financial assets of Cypriot businesses or organisations operating in Cyprus and regulated by the Cyprus Stock Exchange Commission; or a combination of the above. The qualifying investment is therefore €2 million, out of which only €500,000 can be in governmental bonds. The emphasis has therefore shifted to investment in the real economy.

 

Another significant change relates to the fact that investors must now hold a residence permit in Cyprus to qualify for citizenship, thereby reinforcing the link between the investor and the country while at the same time keeping it flexible enough. The application for residency is done, examined and issued at the same time as the application for the acquisition of citizenship is made. Immediate parents are entitled to apply along the investor himself, provided they also hold residence permits in Cyprus as described above and satisfy the requirement of a privately owned residence in Cyprus of a market value exceeding €500,000 plus VAT, which remains unchanged.
