Solution for “Special Citizenship program” in Europe or other Countries
Background and Legal Considerations
Several countries have adopted provisions that allow the acquisition of citizenship on the basis of an investment and/or a direct contribution to the state as a means of development of the country. In Serbia for example, Art. 19 of the Serbian Citizenship Act states that the government can reward foreign persons with citizenship in the event of extraordinary merit. This may take various forms, including economic ones, and can include capital contribution or other economic benefit brought to Serbia. However, citizenship is not granted on the basis of capital contribution alone. The foreign investor must make an extraordinary contribution alongside his investment, such as bringing new technologies to the country or creating a substantial number of new jobs.
Under the citizenship-by-investment provisions, an applicant is required to invest actively in the Serbian economy, for example in the form of a joint venture or direct investment in a business that creates jobs or generates new export sales. Significant direct investment is generally required. Passive investments in government bonds, real estate, etc. do not qualify. In addition to standard documentary requirements (passports, birth and marriage certificates, etc.), a completely clean personal record (certificate of no criminal record), a comprehensive CV and business background information must be provided by all applicants.
The grant of citizenship on the basis of a capital contribution involves various procedures and requires Government approval at several levels. It is therefore essential that the applicant is properly advised from the beginning, that each individual case is carefully prepared and that informal approvals from the key ministries are obtained before the investment is made and the formal application process is started.

In Austria, Article 10 (6) of the Austrian Citizenship Act states that the government can reward foreign persons with citizenship in the event of extraordinary merit. This process may take various forms, including economic ones and can include capital contribution or other economic benefit brought to Austria. However, in Austria, citizenship is not granted on the basis of capital contribution alone. The foreign investor must make an extraordinary contribution alongside their investment, such as bringing new technologies to the country or creating a substantial number of new jobs.
The Austrian Citizenship Act generally requires the applicant to abandon their current citizenship as a precondition for being granted Austrian citizenship. However, in case of a grant of citizenship under the provisions of Article 10 (6) of the Citizenship Act, the former citizenship can be legally maintained, that is, the applicant may not be required to give up their present citizenship
GCI UNIT Serbia advises on suitable capital contribution opportunities, liaises with the various government agencies and ministries, and finally prepares and lodges your application with the Government. As with other citizenship programs, the procedure involves a thorough background check, and applicants are normally required to attend an interview in Serbia. Citizenship documents are issued after the citizenship application has been approved.
The average time frame for an application is 6 - 8 months. Successful applicants receive full citizenship of the Republic of Serbia by decision of the Government of Serbia, and can apply for a passport immediately afterwards. Passports are issued within a few days.
The grant of citizenship is not reported to any other country, as it falls within the Government provisions relating to privacy/official secrets.

We heard of lawyers in North Macedonia and also in Serbia, who do not even know their own special laws for Investors from the Country and don’t have offered the investor this opportunity! Others Lawyers need several years to make the process finish, because they simply have the wrong contacts in the respective government offices.
As we said at the beginning, it is particularly important in this field to know all the necessary documents, project phases, the individual paths, since often several ministries are addressed, which are not always the same. Serbia, for example, has a thousand applicants for a second citizenship each month. On the other hand, it is great for any lawyer, that is paid per hour and on the full time of process.
Lawyers have been in this market for years and are losing trust, special in the Balkans, because they cost only time, nerve and money. As a result, most manage to pull through the application after 6 years with a lot of money and of course not for everyone.
It depends on how you prepare and present the Investment project, which ministry you go to at the beginning, what advantages does it bring to the country, what benefits, is it long-term or short-term, how many jobs are created, how much know-how flows from outside one, are new technologies being introduced etc.
Of course, you cannot be compare those Solution for special Investor Citizenship, to a classic Citizenship by Investment Program, where everyone who has the necessary money get a second citizenship. One belongs to an Elite Investors, to the chosen ones, and is thus viewed and respected by the state. They get subvention and the doors open in any Ministry.
In addition, some of these countries, such as Serbia or North Macedonia, have a passport that is far higher in the ranking than classic programs that are offered everywhere.
The Serbian passport for example is the fastest growing passport in the world.
You can travel with this to more than 131 countries and new ones are added every year. It also counts among the few passports where the investor can travel to Russia, for example China, without a visa. It is also easy for a Serb to get a Multi Entree Visa for the United States.
The requirements of every investor who can make such an application as Economic Citizenship are different and depend on the respective laws in the respective country, for example also in other Countries.
But here we have to talk clear and unmistakable that the GCI by TCME worldwide Group has never been able to guarantee a successful residence, visa or citizenship through its help! The decision to accept a foreign nationality is a national responsibility of the government.
