1. Singapore

As one of the fastest developing countries in the world with plenty of growth opportunities for everyone, Singapore is also among the most attractive countries for those who seek foreign citizenship.

There are three ways to obtain citizenship in Singapore: you need to marry a Singapore native, start a business there, or gain permanent employment. After two years of residency, you will be able to apply for citizenship. Note that if you are a man under the age of retirement, you will need to complete National Service in order to qualify for citizenship.

2. Dominica

The Commonwealth of Dominica is a tiny island country located in the Caribbean region and it’s far from being the most popular destination for citizenship seekers. However, if you have always envisioned yourself living a quiet island live in a tropical paradise, all it takes to become a Dominica citizen is a one-time investment of $100,000 into the country’s economy. It shouldn’t take more than 3-4 months for you to obtain your Dominica citizenship after that.

3. Canada

On the list of the most coveted international citizenships, Canada firmly occupies the top spot. For many immigrants of the world, Canada seems like the most attractive option no matter where you come from and what you do. Plus, it may be easier to obtain Canadian citizenship than you think.

4. Italy

Italy has everything you could ever want from a country where you plan to live: a strong economy, democratic government, accepting society, pleasant climate and beautiful scenery. Plus, as an EU country, Italy gives its citizens nearly unlimited opportunities for visa-free travels. The easiest way to officially get into Italy is to get married to an Italian citizen – after 3 years of living in Italy as a spouse, you will be able to apply for Italian citizenship.

5. Argentina

Argentina is one of the most thriving and beautiful countries in South America. Even more importantly, an Argentina passport unlocks travel to almost 150 countries without a visa, although that doesn’t include the US or Canada. First, you will need to establish residency in Argentina by submitting proof of a minimum of $1,000/month of passive income from rentals, investments, and other ventures outside of Argentina. After two years of residency, you will be fully eligible for citizenship.
