What are the main benefits of a second passport?
Safe Future for Your Family
Always have a plan B, a second citizenship is a satisfying alternative. Europe or Caribbean or Vanuatu offer stability, safety and many other advantages.
Many people are looking to enhance their lifestyle by living in Europe or another country. The lifestyle advantages could include better health-care, natural environment, infrastructure, culture and the like.
If you have an EU passport, your children will have full access to the highly-developed European education system at the same price as any other EU student.
One of the major benefits of the second passport is freedom of travel. You are allowed to freely travel throughout the European countries, Russia, China, and 100+ other countries without a visa.
Which is the Best Passport?
A simple question, but the answer is not apparent. You may find many passport rankings on the internet based on the number of visa-free countries. That means, the higher the number of visa-free countries, the better is the ranking.
Unfortunately, these types of rankings are not particularly useful. Why? Access to the UK or Germany has not the same value as access to Kosovo. The chance to live in an EU country is not the same as the chance to live in Kosovo.
However, not every destination has the same value; that is why a ranking according to the number of visa-free access is not useful. There are some preferred destinations like Europe, UK, Russia, USA, Canada, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
The table below list the travel value of second passports:
A second passport is opening up new opportunities. You can move to your new country; you can secure your wealth or even extend your business and optimise your taxation. Your children may have access to better and higher-level education. Second citizenship is insurance. Should your home country undergo any substantial political or economic crisis, you have the option to relocate everything and everybody to a stable and safe country. Or you may have the best place for retiring.
We tried to summarise and compare the core values of a second passport. Unfortunately, we could not find reliable and comparable data about the Caribbean countries and Vanuatu.
