A little about the United Kingdom

As the original beacon of free trade, property rights, common law and political stability, the UK has attracted enterprising individuals from across the globe for centuries. To this day, the cosmopolitan magnetism of London’s economic, political and cultural prominence in combination makes it a world city unrivalled even by the likes of New York, Tokyo and Paris.  As far as passports are concerned, that of the UK is decidedly in the top echelon in terms of the rights and freedoms it grants to its holder. Owing to its exceptional desirability, a UK citizenship is neither cheap nor easy to obtain, but not beyond reach for those with the right mix of means and motivation.

Citizenship Procedure

Before an applicant may obtain a UK passport, he or she must have held a UK Indefinite Leave to Remain (permanent residence permit) for one year. In order to obtain an ILR, the main applicant must first invest the required GBP 2/5/10 million in one or more of the approved investment vehicles and maintain this holding for either five, three or two years, depending on the size of the investment.

 

Second, the main applicant must spend no more than half the year outside the UK. Any and all individuals included in the application who have the eventual goal of obtaining not only ILR but also citizenship must spend no more than 90 days per year outside of the UK for the duration.

 

As long as the applicant has maintained the investment and fulfilled the residence requirements for the prescribed period, naturalization will ordinarily be approved in a matter of weeks.

Costs:
The applicant must make an investment of either GBP 2, 5 or 10 million UK government bonds, share capital or bonds issued by publicly trade companies in the UK. Investing GBP 2 million allows the applicant to complete the path to citizenship in altogether six years, if GBP 5 Million, in four years and if GBP 10 million in three years.
