Today we are talking about one very exciting topic – The BEST Citizenship by Investment Program in The World. This is unofficial citizenship by investment program.
Which country am I talking about? Hungary!
In my opinion, this is the best passport available on the market today. It’s the second most expensive program, right after Malta.
Unlike Malta Hungary doesn’t have official citizenship by investment program. What they have is citizenship by exception. This means that it’s given to individuals that somehow deserve to get it because they made a big contribution to the country.
You can not go through an agency or look it up on the website. This type of citizenship grant requires connections with the government. We have this type of connection in several other countries, including Georgia and Ukraine.
Now let’s get back to Hungarian citizenship. Why is it so great?
First of all, it gives you access to the EU and Schengen zone – you can live, work and study in any of the member states. This is a massive advantage that EU passports can give you.
Besides this, Hungarian citizens have visa-free or visa on arrival access to 182 countries and territories, ranking the Hungarian passport 10th in terms of travel freedom according to the Henley Passport Index. This includes Canada, the US, and Australia! You have the access to all the countries where it is quite hard to get visa as a tourist.
Another massive advantage of this citizenship is that it’s VERY FAST. You can get it in as little as two (or three) months! In order to obtain citizenship in Malta, it takes approximately one year to 18 months. Hungary is so much faster and more convenient, especially since you don’t have to go through a draconian due diligence process like in Malta. In comparison to Malta, Hungary wins every single point.
What about the costs?
In order to obtain Hungary Citizenship by Investment, you will need to donate 750 000 EUR to the government. This is an all-inclusive price. You can also bring your spouse and kids.
This program has some nationality restrictions, meaning that not everyone can apply.
In order to obtain this citizenship, you will need to visit Hungary. The due diligence process is very simple and straightforward, as long as you have clear police check and a clean source of funds there is nothing to worry about.
In my opinion, this is the best Citizenship by Investment program that exists in the world. It’s better than all the official and non-official programs. Also, we like the fact that it’s unofficial which means that you will not face the same hurdles as someone who buys one of the well-known citizenships, such as Vanuatu.
The only downside of this program is a hefty price, however if you’re deciding between Hungary or another EU citizenship this one is the clear winner in my opinion.
