What You Need To Know About Comoros Citizenship By Investment
The Comoros Economic Citizenship Program is a legal naturalization program established in 2001 in accordance with the Constitution. The Program is regulated by the Law On Economic Citizenship as of 27 November 2008 and has been guaranteed by the federal government since 2008. The relevant legislation has been recently amended to reflect a clearer focus on citizenship by investment.
The local public authority responsible for processing all applications under the Program is the National Independent Committee (NIC).According to the law, citizenship is granted solely by decree of the President of the Republic. The official confirmation that you were granted citizenship is the Certificate of Naturalization and passport of Comoros Union.
Once you have acquired the status of an economic citizen of the Comoros you cannot serve in the national army or in the judicial authorities of the Comoros. You will not be permitted to vote either. Benefits granted to economic citizens cannot be lower than those given to any foreign investor within the framework of the code of investments.
It takes approximately 45-80 days from the moment you submit a complete application until you get your Comorian citizenship and passport. However processing times may vary depending on each individual case and the government policy, nationality of applicant, his residency. Also the term may depends on the quality of documents and information completeness.
Benefits Of The Comoros Islands Citizenship Program
The Comoros citizenship program is the cheapest citizenship by investment program available. It is also one of the fastest when it comes to processing applications for second citizenship. One of the greatest benefits is that once granted to you, your citizenship can never be revoked no matter what happens in the country. Changes to the government or its executives will not have any grounds in law to revoke your citizenship.
Many smart high net worth individuals are turning to the Comoros citizenship program as it provides protection for your assets and provides a high degree of privacy. As a part of this privacy agreement, your home country will never be notified that you have obtained a citizenship of the Comoros Islands. There is also no requirement for you to renounce your home citizenship and you do not have to reside in the Comoros. Once you have obtained your citizenship of the Comoros you will not be under any tax obligations from the country. It is also one of the few second citizenship programs where you are not required to make an investment until your application has been approved.
