Why do people participate in investment migration programs?

While there are an almost unlimited number of motivations for participating in such programs, common ones are a desire to

  • Improve personal mobility by gaining visa-free travel to and settlement rights in more jurisdictions
  • Increase overseas education possibilities
  • Improve safety, not only of the individuals involved, but also their assets through improved property rights
  • Have a “Plan B”. Many investors participate in such programs so as to have an alternative country to which they can relocate, should circumstances in their current place of residence become untenable.
