The three alternatives for getting a second legal passport

How can I get a second legal passport? This question has three possible answers: through family legacy, investment or residence.

To get a second passport through family legacy, you must have direct relatives (grandparents, parents) who were born in the country from where you'd like to have the passport. The countries that grant citizenship and a second passport more easily and quickly, starting from family lineage are Italy, Israel, Poland, Ireland, and Spain.

Another low-cost, albeit slow, way to obtain a second passport is with a residence. By being a resident, you can opt for citizenship by becoming a part of the community. For example, someone who has resided in Panama or Nicaragua for five years can apply for citizenship. In Nicaragua, you can become a resident by investing a certain amount of money in its reforestation program.

These days, the mechanism used the most for obtaining a second citizenship and a second passport is investing money in various programs that some countries have implemented. Which is the best second passport? To decide this, a person must evaluate, above all, how many countries he can travel to without needing to request a visa with the second passport. Also, it's important to keep in mind the reputation of the country issuing the passport.

The passport from Malta is one of the most useful that can be obtained by investment. You can freely enter the United States and Canada with this passport, as well as the entire European Union. There are 167 countries that don't require a visa from someone who uses a Maltese passport. For all these advantages, the investment and the purchase price of this passport are high; also, most of the applications are turned down, since the government is very selective in the people it accepts.

Bulgaria is another European country that accepts investments and, in exchange, gives permanent residence for a year. Then, after another investment, it grants citizenship and the second passport. These investments can be in Bulgarian bonds, so there's no need to buy real estate. The Bulgarian passport allows entry into almost 160 countries without a visa. Two other European nations have citizenship through investment programs: Cyprus and Austria; however, both are much more expensive than Bulgaria's.

The citizenship by investment programs offered by various Caribbean countries are among the most in-demand around the world. St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, Barbuda, and Dominica offer a second passport to everyone who invests in real estate or a donation to the Government.

The passports from these Caribbean nations are very useful because they allow entry, without a visa, into the Schengen area of the European Union and some even make it possible to travel to Canada, also with needing to request a visa,
