Second Citizenship and Residency By Investment

Berkeley is a leading brokerage focusing solely on second citizenship and residency by investment programs. Through the selected programs that we offer, you could obtain a second passport, dual nationality or permanent residency in a time frame of just 2-4 months. Our specialty lies in identifying rare and exceptional opportunities around the globe for our clients, which combine solid investments with the added benefits of permanent residency, second passports and full citizenship in that country.

When applying for dual citizenship through our investment programs, it’s often not even compulsory for you to reside in your “new” country, or for you to give up your current nationality. Obtaining the citizenship and / or residency occurs purely by way of your investment. You could open a fixed deposit savings account, invest in real estate, contribute to the country’s main industries or do a mixture of both. Whatever the options, our carefully selected team of expert consultants will be there to help and advise you every step of the way.

We are able to ensure our clients benefit from the added value of comparing and selecting from the most cost effective and tailored programs currently available on the market today. This ensures your choice is in-line with both your individual and family’s needs. Listed below are just some of the many global programs we offer:
