264: Dual Identity: Strategies for Gaining Backup Residency or Citizenship

Since it’s Summit week, and you really should be checking out the over 40 free presentations going on there, I am going to republish an episode today that I did earlier this year about how to go about getting a backup citizenship or residency. 

But first, really, stop what you’re doing and grab your spot over at the Expat Money Summit and catch these incredible presentations live. You can come back to this later!



  • Confused about the lexicon or language when it comes to immigration? Many people are. This is the episode that you won’t want to miss.
  • I start with the most basic language, so you’ll fully comprehend and understand it.
  • I discuss the difference between temporary and permanent residencies and why they are so important to understand.
  • The next step up is citizenship. What does this mean? What must you do or complete to become a citizen in a new country?
  • Are you thinking about starting a family or having additional children? Listen as I talk about birth tourism and what it can mean for you and your family.
  • One of my main focuses is on Residency by Investment. What does that look like, and how can you obtain one?
  • What is a Golden Visa? You may have heard this phrase.
  • The next piece of information I cover is Citizenship by Investment. The countries that offer it, and why I believe it is so important.
  • I run through the countries that currently have citizenship by investment and the costs involved.



I hope today’s episode was beneficial to you and works as a real complement to the three-hour workshop I did on Saturday.

I also want to say that if you’re listening to today’s episode and you still haven’t hopped over to the Summit, it’s the perfect next step on your expat journey. You can still catch the remaining presentations for free or upgrade to a VIP ticket for lifetime access.
