CTrustGlobal - Citizenship by Investment Government Authorized Agent


Best Citizenship by Investment Opportunity for Iraqi Nationals

Irag has experienced a series of armed conflicts over the years. The 2003 invasion literally brought down the country to the ground level and by the end of 2021, the U.S. formally concluded the withdrawal of its combat mission in the war-torn country, leaving the Iraqi nationals at the expense of their protection.

So, how is the new Iraq after the war? Although its main challenge is recovering from the war against the Islamic State and the Levant (ISIL), the political system in Iraq is still lacking cohesion.

The government is hopelessly corrupt and the economy has been in a downward spiral since 1979. The country had no real government until new prime minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi was elected in 2020 to serve as a caretaker prime minister. But even at that, this is a Prime Minister that is not in a position to rule the country and no President that actually has power.

All of this makes the new Iraq even more vulnerable to terrorist attacks. In order to move forward, the new government must implement a comprehensive economic plan that focuses on ensuring a prosperous and stable future for Iraq. And more so, the Iraqi nationals who find the situation unbearable have the option to secure a better future for their families in countries with a stable economy and security.

At CTrust Global, an authorized Citizenship by investment agent for the Caribbean countries, we are here to put you in the right direction. Ahead, discover how Iraqi nationals can acquire a second passport and dual citizenship in a Caribbean country called Dominica.
