In this post, we will introduce to 5 countries that offer easy citizenship to foreigners.
Citizenship means having full right to live within a country (live, vote, work and study).
It also means you can apply for a passport and have the government’s protection while traveling abroad.
Most people only have one citizenship but having a second one is a brilliant idea, both for yourself and your offsprings.
Let’s see which countries are the easiest ones to get citizenship!
Based on a rule in the 18th century, anyone who resides in Argentina for 2 years (Even illegally) is qualified to apply for Argentinian citizenship.
Argentinians enjoy freedom of movement in 8 other South American countries (Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay) under the Mercosur immigration agreement. The only condition is that if you’re a naturalized citizen of either of Mercosur counties, you have to wait for 5 years to be eligible.
If you are planning to have a child, do it in Brazil!
By giving birth to a child in Brazil, the child is automatically a citizen and the parent(s) can apply for permanent residency. After a year of living in the country, the parents are eligible to apply for Brazilian citizenship.
Just like Argentina, Brazilians enjoy living and working legally in 8 other South American countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay) under the Mercosur immigration agreement.
Any person who comes from a Jewish family (Even one grandmother/grandfather) or has converted to Judaism more than 9 months ago is eligible to immigrate to Israel under the law of return. They call it “Right to Aliyah,” or the right to immigrate to Israel.
The applicants should contact an Aliyah center in their country and as soon as landing in Israel, they will receive their Israeli citizenship at the Ben Gurion Airport!
According to USNews, Canada is the best country in the world to live in.
There are a lot of ways to immigrate to Canada. After obtaining a Permanent residency card and living in the country 3 years in 5 years (1095 days), you are eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship.
Panama, a central American Paradise offers a few easy, inexpensive ways to become a naturalized citizen like “The Panama Friendly Nations Visa“. You should be the citizen in one of the 50 countries on the list (the US, Canada, most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan).
By obtaining this Visa, you’ll get Panamanian Permanent residency and after 5 years, you can apply for citizenship!
