Since the fall of Hosni Mubarak in 2011, there has been a marked increase in the number of Egyptians seeking to migrate to other countries. This trend can be largely attributed to the political and economic instability that has beset Egypt in the years since Mubarak's ouster. As a result, many Egyptians are seeking to escape the high levels of poverty and unemployment that have become commonplace in their home country. Additionally, many Egyptians are seeking to take advantage of the opportunities available in other countries, particularly in Europe and North America.
But however, as a holder of an Egyptian passport, moving to these countries requires a visa or a passport that will grant you and your family permanent residence. How can you break free from this hassle? The answer is simple: acquiring a second passport and dual citizenship in a country with a better passport ranking that will enable you to travel the world however you want.
Here at CTrust Global, an authorized Citizenship-by-investment agent for the Caribbean countries, we will share all the details on how Egyptians can acquire a Grenada passport and citizenship.
