Citizenship Programmes for South Africans
Are you looking to move out of South Africa and relocate anywhere else in the world?
Or are you simply seeking a better quality of life for you and your family and secure a Plan B?
While South African citizens can already travel to 112 destinations without a visa,
they still lack access to politically favorable countries such as Europe, China, the U.K., and the USA.
Therefore, for South African families looking for fast relocation and expedite residency or citizenship to other countries,
investment immigration programmes may be key solutions.
When you consider your second residency or citizenship option, it is important to consider the factors behind your aspiration to actually migrate or not.
Personal safety, as well as children’s safety, is a leading factor for most South Africans.
For professionals and investors, it often is a struggle to secure a career and to diversify your investment opportunities amidst the shaken local economy.
Nevertheless, the current political climate in South Africa has many South Africans preparing a ‘Plan B’ for themselves, as well as their families, to countries with favorable political, economic, and social stability.
Everyone understands that a second residency or citizenship comes with benefits wider than just visa-free travels. Through a specific amount of investment, applying for an investment immigration programme means securing an insurance policy for the entire family. The main applicant – including spouses, children, and in some programmes even parents and siblings – could live, work, study, and benefit from the social system.
With the rights to reside indefinitely, low tax rates, and to establish a business, the investment allows for a fast-track residency status with a pathway to citizenship – or citizenship right away.
HLG South Africa offers over 35+ residency and citizenship-by-investment programmes worldwide.
Below are the most popular destinations for South Africans:
Portugal Golden Visa For South Africans
– Starts from EUR 280,000.
To apply for the Portugal residency programme, non-EU investors can invest in an SEC-approved Portuguese Investment Fund or Venture Capital Fund, or through a real estate purchase.
There are no language, education, or management requirements, and the residency programme allows the family to apply for Portuguese citizenship after 5 years.
A Portuguese and South African passport combination will allow you access over 200 destinations,
which includes the right to live, work and study anywhere within the European Union,
and extensive traveling rights within key jurisdictions such as
Canada, the US, the UK, Australia, and most European countries.
Grenada Citizenship For South Africans
– Starts from USD 150,000.
Obtaining Grenadian citizenship requires a minimum contribution to the Grenadian government or an investment into a government-approved real estate project.
Citizenship is for a lifetime, passable through generation. There are no language, education, management, or residency requirements.
The combination of a Grenadian and South African passport can get you access to 172 destinations worldwide, including the EU Schengen countries, the UK, China, and Russia.
This is a great advantage to a standalone South African Passport. Grenadian citizens can also apply for a US E-2 non-immigrant visa by investing in a US-based business or franchise.
For South Africans looking to send children to medical schools, Grenadian citizens are qualified for a tuition fee reduction on their children’s first year at St Georges University, a top medical school based out of Grenada.
