Advantages of Second Residency


At RIF Trust, we want to make you SMILE. Now, the first way we do that is to provide SECURITY solutions. A second residency in a stable jurisdiction brings you peace of mind, after all. Escape the chaos and find a peaceful environment where you and your family can flourish as well. Migrate to calmer waters.


See your SMILE broaden thanks to RIF Trust. We, of course, recognize the importance of MOBILITY issues. Do you feel like your wings are being clipped in your home country? Fly to freedom with a second residency, then. An EU permanent residence permit delivers. Above all, it means you enjoy visa-free travel around the Schengen Zone.


Another day, another bank failure. At RIF Trust, however, we can turn your frown upside down. SMILE as your second residency represents the best INSURANCE policy. Diversify and invest in new markets to protect your assets. After all, putting your eggs in one basket risks a messy outcome. Smart investors move their money around, though.


Ditch the rat race and put a SMILE on your face. Achieve better work-life balance with a second residency. RIF Trust is all about LIFESTYLE. Stop working nine to five. Leave the daily grind behind. Be your own boss with a new residence. Therefore, enjoy higher life expectancy by taking things easier.


How can you ensure your children get the best possible start in life? A bedrock of the trademark RIF Trust SMILE is EDUCATION, of course. Second residency can get your offspring into better schools and, also, universities. After all, state schools in many countries reach the same standards as private education elsewhere. Enrol to enrich the educational opportunities of your sons as well as your daughters.


A second residency secured via RIF Trust gives you a fresh leash of life. For instance, imagine enjoying your RDA of Vitamin D as the sun shines down in your new hometown. Take advantage of free healthcare also. In Europe, in addition, a Mediterranean diet can help you live longer.


Residency is interchangeable with residence. This is “the act or fact of residing”, as the dictionary defines the term. Ordinarily, people tend to reside in their home country and, then, holiday in another country.

Let RIF Trust put a SMILE on your face with a new residency. You’ll feel more secure and, also, will be able to move around easier. A second residency allows you to invest in other markets as an insurance policy as well.

Improve your lifestyle and, additionally, boost the prospects of your children through education. With a second residence, you can ensure both health and, also, wealth. Second residency’s a Plan B. It’s an alternative. Adding extra options is playing it safe, after all.

Temporary residence permits enable individuals to extend their stay beyond tourist visas, and the duration of the permit varies from one to five years, depending on the programme. The authorities issue these permits with time limitations, and individuals must renew them to remain in the country.

The renewal requirements are tied to the permit’s purpose, and individuals must meet specific physical residence requirements. Temporary residents may not have access to certain benefits and may have limitations, such as single-entry permits. Although temporary residence permits do not directly lead to citizenship, they can lead to permanent residence.

If you’re looking for a way to become a citizen of a foreign country, obtaining a permanent residence permit could be the answer. These permits allow you to renew or exchange them for a passport, typically remaining valid for five to 10 years. With a permanent residency card, you’ll have comprehensive rights, except for political rights like voting.

Renewal is dependent on meeting physical residence requirements, which means you can continue working or even start a business in the country. However, the naturalisation process to gain citizenship can vary from country to country, with some requiring language proficiency and prohibiting dual citizenship. It’s essential to work with experienced advisors who can guide you through the complexities of the process.

There are similarities across residency-by-investment programmes. But there are also differences. Common RBI requirements relate to age. You have to be over 18 years of age to qualify. Yet you can bring a spouse and dependents with you. Investment amounts vary too.

You can get residency by investing in a national fund. Governments use this to improve a country’s infrastructure. Another way is to contribute to a property development project. Or you could buy real estate for personal use.

Residency-by-investment programmes benefit countries by attracting foreign investment, creating jobs, and increasing tax revenue. These programmes allow high-net-worth individuals (HWNIs) to obtain residency or citizenship by investing in the country’s economy, contributing to cultural diversity and population growth.

Additionally, these programmes can improve a country’s image and reputation, demonstrating openness to foreign investment and welcoming attitude towards foreign nationals. Overall, they offer a mutually beneficial opportunity for both the country and the investor.
