In today’s globalized world, individuals live and conduct business on an international scale, and the option of a second or even third residence or citizenship, and the freedom that comes with it, is enormously attractive. Countries themselves are also looking for new ways to generate growth, and have increasingly become focused on the benefits of offering investors residence or citizenship in return for some form of economic investment.
Over the years, Henley & Partners has emerged as the world’s leading firm specialized in this particular area of practice. In response to this ever changing global landscape, the firm has released its 5th edition of the handbook, which features relevant updates on all featured countries, and new chapters on residence-by-investment in Australia and Guernsey, citizenship-by-investment in Grenada, an updated Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index, and new sections on the Global Residence Programs Index and the Global Citizenship Programs Index.
The book covers all important aspects of residence rules, citizenship law, dual citizenship, passports and visa-free travel, tax and real estate planning, and many more internationally relevant topics.
It is written by Christian H. Kälin, a Swiss lawyer and Chairman at Henley & Partners, and one of the pioneers and leading authorities in international residence and citizenship planning.
