Where can a European find a safe haven during the war or other crisis?

Which is the fastest way to move to a safe country, even with your family? What kind of preparations and documents will you need?


During the last 70 years after WW2, non-European, third-country citizens usually fleed to the old continent to find their peace. However, suppose we remember the turmoils of European history. In that case, we can't forget that tens of millions escaped or left Europe to other continents because of wars, famines and epidemics. 


It's essential to notice that the simplified laws of immigration of the EU do not apply in third countries. You will have to face the same problems and challenges as those immigrants who arrived in Europe and started their bureaucratic process to become residents, later citizens.


And if you wait until the crisis arrives, maybe it will be late to escape. Maximum, you can only become a poor and vulnerable refugee with limited rights.


How to find your safe haven?


Traditionally, remote and peaceful tiny islands and small countries far from Europe and wars are the best solutions. And there are perfect locations where you can invest in exchange for citizenship or residency. Usually, the citizenship by investment programs have "real estate purchase" options. These solutions are generally more expensive than the donation options. Still, if you are in a hurry, you will need a property to live with your family, so this option is tailor-made for you. For example, the Caribbean dream island nations of St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, St Lucia and Dominica offer you a second safe home. You can also immigrate to solid and prosperous nations, where the level of risks and dangers are historically low as the United States, Australia, Canada or New Zealand. 


How much does it cost to get citizenship that guarantees the safety of you and your family?


Perhaps it will be enough to get a new passport, which will allow you to leave and enter various countries. Traditionally the travel documents of the jurisdictions with citizenship programs are among the strongest passports. It's not a coincidence; for example, the Caribbean islands are peaceful paradise island nations. They never attacked any other country. Roughly, new citizenship costs are between US$ 100,000 and US$ 400,000; it depends on the country and the chosen option. Residency permits are also great solutions. A residency permit is usually more affordable than a passport. Most of the schemes offer you the path to citizenship.


How should you prepare to get out of Europe and settle elsewhere? 


First of all, you have to plan everything now, all the little details. We are here to help you; ask for a consultation now! Our experts are waiting for your call or email, and we are ready to share all the information and knowledge you need. 

The second most vital part is to have all your documents at hand. In the case of a refugee application (and any other immigration-related processes), the problematic issue is to prove your identity and background. Because the refugees do not have time to obtain all the necessary documents, it is almost impossible to get the required papers. It can be even dangerous to try to do so!


Which documents will you need to apply for a residency permit or citizenship?


  • Passport
  • Birth certificate
  • Police certificate (can expire!) 


Each country has various regulations, so the authorities of the different programs may require additional documents:


  • ID card
  • Proof of address
  • Tax reports
  • Bank reference or account history
  • Medical check
  • Military service book
  • School degrees
  • Language exams and professional certificates


Don't forget that if you secure a second home country as a citizen or resident, you always have the choice to move and do it fast! Choose the best option for you and prepare if you feel that it can be necessary to guarantee safety for you, your family and your wealth. Take a look here and find the best solution! Please note that we are not warmongers. Our task is to support your application for a residency or citizenship by investment program if you need it.
