Second Passports, Alternative Citizenship & Residency

The noose is tightening and the best insurance you can ever buy will be your passport - either first or second; The 5th Estate recommends you get your passport NOW

Each day American Citizens lose more and more of their fundamental rights. Many of these rights were given up in the name of “national security.” It’s a very slippery slope. Scholars have debated the erosion of civil rights caused by the passage of the Patriot Act. A recent unanimous amendment to a Senate transportation bill may have just cost Americans the right to travel. - Senator Harry Reid of Nevada was successful in amending a Senate highway funding bill to now allow the IRS to revoke or limit the passports of U.S. taxpayers who are seriously delinquent in their tax obligations. - Under the measure, if one owes more than $50,000 and the debt is at the levy or lien stage, the IRS can request the State Department revoke the taxpayer’s passport. America abolished debtor’s prisons in 1833 but the new measure is pretty similar - Americans freedom and liberty can be curtailed until the taxman is paid

A second passport, or an economic citizenship passport is harder to get then it once was.  Even getting that first passport may be difficult.


Obama moving to stop U.S. citizens from leaving
Why is that, you may wonder. The reasons are not complex; in fact they are rather straight-forward and easy to understand. The US government has gone broke. They don't want you to go away with your money, they want to steal it. How did they go broke? Since 1949 they have been throwing wars like a teenage nymphomaniac throws parties.

The combination of Chaney and Bush was more than the economy could bear. They ran up a twelve trillion dollar debt by starting a totally meaningless war costing $720 million dollars a day. The money spent on one day of the Iraq war could buy homes for almost 6,500 families or health care for 423,529 children, or could outfit 1.27 million homes with renewable electricity, according to the American Friends Service Committee, which displayed those statistics on large banners in cities in the USA nationwide. The bottom line is they screwed up very bad, squandered billions of dollars and now they need you to pay for their stupidity. If you get a 2nd passport and flee America they can't take your money. 

Therefore they have done everything to keep you from getting a second passport, closing resources and threatening tax-haven nations with sanctions. On this page we supply what information we can. You can get a second passport; it's just harder to get then it was a few years ago . . . why don't you wait a few more years, then it will be impossible and you won't have to worry about it. Your fate will be sealed.

The Shrinking World of Second Passports

We just learned from our sources on the ground that Panama is not granting US citizens second passports after those people have fulfilled the residency requirement. Is this the beginning of something new trend? Will other Americans be denied second passports wherever the US has a cozy relationship with the issuing government? Many countries like Panama have residency requirements which take 5 years to get a passport. The problem is, as many US citizens have recently found out the hard way, anything can happen during those years leading up to passport eligibility. The solution, an expedited passport. If there was ever was a need for another citizenship and passport, it is now. The idea that US citizens need to become a citizen of some other country simply to invest or bank abroad is unbelievable, and yet that is exactly where we are at the moment. In addition, matters will only get worse. The financially stressed US government will chase money and revenue from wherever it can.


Hitler did the same thing
The goal of FATCA is to identify US citizens with undeclared assets hidden in overseas bank accounts. In terms of banking or investing abroad, it is the bank or financial institution turning US clients away – not because it would be illegal in that jurisdiction to open an account for a foreigner (or American specifically) but rather to avoid any hassle or aggravation in dealing with the US government. The result is to get another citizenship and passport, or as the banks are increasing stating, “take your funds elsewhere.”

Now that you understand some of the benefits of a second passport, how can you acquire one?

Almost every country has a program offering citizenship or passports to individuals with a family history in that nation. In Ireland, persons with at least one Irish-born grandparent qualify for Irish citizenship and passport.

Many countries allow spouses of citizens to apply for citizenship and passport, usually after a specified period of residence. In Austria, the ordinary 10-year period of residence necessary to qualify for a passport and citizenship is reduced to six years if you’re married to an Austrian citizen.

Your religion may also be a viable route to alternative citizenship. For instance, Jews who immigrate to Israel under the “Law of Return” are entitled to Israeli citizenship and passport.

If you don’t qualify based on these factors, in most countries, you can acquire citizenship following a period of prolonged residence. Among other countries, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States exchange residence rights for domestic investment. Eligibility also depends on your age, education, life skills, health, and other criteria. Your spouse and minor children can often accompany you, although in some cases they may be subject to a separate qualification process.


But there are only a handful of countries which offer official, legally mandated expedited citizenship and passports. The Commonwealth of Dominica, the Federation of St. Kitts Nevis, and the Dominican Republic.

The least expensive option is to obtain citizenship and a second passport from the Dominican Republic. There are numerous promoters and facilitators which offer this service, but only one can procure citizenship and passport in 6 months. For a total cost of $25,000 and the required documentation, plus three trips into the country, you can be a citizen with passport in 6 months. Please contact us below if you would like to learn more about this program.

Under Dominica’s (not the Dominican Republic) program, you may acquire citizenship and passport in return for a cash contribution in 2 months. Total costs including all fees for a single applicant come to about $105,000. Add $25,000 if you need a passport for your spouse and up to two children under 18. Dominican passport holders can travel without a visa, or obtain a visa upon entry, to nearly 100 countries and territories. You can also live or work in most members of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), including Antigua; Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Grenada, Guyana, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent; the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad & Tobago.

In the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis, there are two ways to obtain economic citizenship. The most practical strategy is to make a direct contribution. Total costs including all fees for a single applicant under this option come to about $225,000 or $275,000 for an applicant with up to three dependents. It will take about 3 months. Alternatively, you may purchase qualifying property worth a minimum of $395,000.

However, fees and taxes under this option are much higher than if you make a direct contribution. St. Kitts & Nevis passport holders can travel without a visa, or obtain a visa upon entry, to more than 130 countries, including nearly all of the 27 member countries of the European Union. You can also live or work in most CARICOM countries.

8 Signs that the US Government is Making it Harder For You to Become an Expat

One of the most common reasons for wanting to expatriate from the United States is the concern about government overreach. Many feel that the expansion of government in recent years has been chipping away at the freedom and liberty that the country was founded upon. What with more and more agencies, regulations, surveillance, and mandates, the right to privacy and self - determination is steadily shrinking right along with financial outlooks. So, are you among the increasing number of people who feel that the only real solution is to get out of the country? Well, using the exact same tactics that are driving you away, the government appears intent on preventing you from leaving. Changes that have recently been put in place as well as proposals for future changes in rules and regulations might be intended to discourage. But they might also drive your resolve to take your destiny into your own hands and do whatever it takes to make your move overseas.


Want to wind up like this?  It's easy, just blow-off getting your passport - and have fun in the FEMA camps or your nearest friendly supermax prison.

THE BOTTOM LINE


You can’t put a price on freedom.   Procrastination is a killer.  A first or second passport will give you the peace of mind to concentrate on the big decision you will have to make when you finally come to the realization that you must get out to save yourself and the lives of your family.  Don't abrogate, delegate, or obfuscate.  Get that passport NOW.
