Why Get an EU Passport?
Freedom of Movement
EU citizens can travel anywhere in the European Union without restrictions to access or stay. They do not require visa for entry nor are they restricted to the time they can spend in an EU country. EU citizens have the right to live, work and retire in any of the 27 EU member states and can even travel visa-free to a list of third world countries the EU has agreements with.
Working & Residential Benefits
EU citizens can apply for work in another EU country, work without a permit, stay in the country after employment is over and get the same treatment as local residents in terms of employment access, working conditions and other social/tax advantages.
Citizens are legally entitled to purchase real estate and live in any EU country. By gaining a second citizenship, EU citizens are able to enjoy tax breaks that non-citizens do not have access to. Europe is home to many tax havens and provides favourable environments for matters such as taxation on capital gains, income and corporations.
Education, Healthcare & Lifestyle BenefitsUnder current EU laws, EU citizens have the legal right to safe and good quality medical treatment when they are living in their country, travelling temporarily between EU states, residing in another EU country and when travelling to another EU country to receive treatment. Citizens travelling to other countries enjoy similar prices as local residents. EU citizenship also offers other lifestyle benefits, such as peace and security, high food and environmental standards, and human rights. Those that are looking for a safe environment to raise their children or retire– and an overall better quality of life will find EU citizenship very attractive.
