PLAN YOUR OWN EXIT DURING COVID CRISIS:
WHY MONTENEGRO IS THE BEST COUNTRY FOR SECURING EU RESIDENCY
Amid a pandemic that we all see in the world today, freedom is one that many people desire. The domino effect of the coronavirus pandemic that we are dealing with, one of which is the longing of freedom in economics.
We are talking about the setback of hopes to attain freedom of movement, better access to health services, and the freedom to get the best education for our children.
The subtle financial crisis in many countries is gradually getting more obvious. The crisis vividly hits various types of industries on any scale, as we are all witnessing now.
Not to mention the interference of local political policies that are often fickle and contribute to destabilizing the economy.
But does this mean that you have to stop seeing opportunities to invest for your freedom after the pandemic ends?
If you are thinking about gaining freedom and better access in life, whether it’s for residing or doing business, you may as well want to find answers for questions like: Where is that one special place? What will possibly be the challenges? How to overcome those possible challenges?
At this point, you must have considered a plan to changing citizenship or to at least applying for dual citizenship (if your country allows you to have dual citizenship).
However, changing citizenship is not trivial. In addition to considering the amount of cash you have to prepare, thorough business planning, or retirement, you are once again challenging yourself with the question of the ease of access and the nature of freedom that you aim to have.
What kind of freedom and access that you see in your destination country? Will any sort of freedom or access requires you to sacrifice things that you already have?
The good news is, there is a surefire answer to put your worries aside about the freedom and access you will have and achieve when you hold new citizenship status. The answer is to become part of EU citizens.
One of the freedoms you will have by being an EU citizen is freedom of movement. You can travel between the 28-member states freely, with no visas, and remain there with no restrictions.
No more queuing in a long line at the custom airport for travel. EU passport allows unlimited travel, safe passage, and consular assistance for you and your family in situations beyond your control.
In parallel, you can register a company and launch a branch of an existing EU-based business in any EU country, Iceland, Norway, or Liechtenstein quickly and easily. In most EU countries, you can set up a new company for less than EUR 100 in less than 3 working days, completing all procedures online through a single administrative body.
A tremendous relief in setting up your long-run plans as you were probably still figuring out what would be the best plan in settling, advancing, and/or expanding your business, investment, or career in your original country.
As much as the fancied benefit of easy traveling access, one may also say that health care benefits and career advancement opportunities are two important things to consider too as well, in the plan of changing nationality. That is when you will appreciate yourself for having an EU passport.
Any job vacancy posted in one of those 28 countries within the EU is also available for you. Along with your access to obtain reciprocal healthcare whether you are on holiday or studying abroad, residing permanently in another EU country, or when traveling to another EU member state to receive medical treatment.
At this point, you might be thinking, “Okay, there are quite a lot of benefits for being an EU citizen. Very interesting. But how? How do I get citizenship in the EU? Which country should I choose?”
The good news is, you can now claim and enjoy the benefits of being an EU citizen by holding a Montenegro passport.
Yes, you read it right. We are talking about Montenegro. We are talking about this future-is-now country.
