How To Become A French Citizen

The French Citizenship by Investor program gives ambitious foreign (non-EU) entrepreneurs a direct opportunity to become a French citizen and enjoy all of the life changing benefits that would come with that status.

Becoming a French citizen and passport holder automatically elevates you to the status of an EU citizen, and all that that entails.  As an EU passport holder you will enjoy a vastly improved freedom of movement, including the right to visit, live and work in all European Union countries, plus visa free access to the UK and US.

Program Requirements

The France Citizenship by Investor program is specifically aimed at ambitious non-EU entrepreneurs and investors who are desperate to take their business – and their lives – to the next level. In return, France is keen to take on new investors who – via French citizenship – will continue to add to the French economy.

Applicants for the French Citizenship by Investment program are required to:

  • Have proven assets of at least €200,000
  • To be willing to make an investment in France by way of a real estate purchase for the minimum of €200,000
  • To then go ahead and purchase either property or land to the value of at least €200,000 within the borders of France
  • To allow 100 working days for the French citizenship process to run its course
  • To maintain purchased real estate or land for a period of five years minimum

Why French Citizenship?

If you are a high net-worth individual hailing from a North African or Arabic, maybe even an African state where French is spoken, either as a first or second language. How were the French perceived in your country? Whether they were loved or hated, they were always respected, and quite rightly so; like the UK and Italy (Rome), France is one of the three European nations that have shaped much of the modern world we live in today.

Maybe you harbour a grudge against France and the French, but if that’s the case, you need to get over it, because the benefits of becoming French far outweigh any internal conflict you may have. People assume the English and Germans are arrogant, the Spanish and Italians are looked at as flaky, but everyone loves the French! Of course, if you can actually speak French it will only add to your personal “renaissance.”

Now, imagine what it would be like to call yourself French, especially when you are entering the customs section of an airport. You just know that when you flash your French passport at that person sitting behind the screen, you are going to get a smile and a nod, you are going to get your passport handed straight back to you and you are going to be waved right through, because –

You Already Look French!  

Now, does that happen when you show your current passport, or is that met with suspicious looks and frowns, discussions between members of staff, higher ranking staff called over, with the worst outcome being you led like criminal to an interview room to be further interrogated and your passport scrutinised?

Which of the two above scenarios do you prefer?

Another great reason for choosing French citizenship is because if you are black or Middle Eastern or Arabic, you could be French, because millions of French citizens look just like you. Thanks to France’s colonel history and their remaining strong connections to Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, France already has a large percentage of their population from immigrant stock. Just look at the French football team that won the World Cup in 2018. Aside from Antoine Griezmann it’s hard to spot a white French player.

So when you smile and announce yourself as French, nobody doubts you, even though the ink is still drying on your brand new French citizenship and passport! And when you remember that you are the proud owner of the 6th most powerful passport on the planet, with visa-free access to 186 countries, your smile will only get wider.

 

Benefits Of Choosing The French Citizenship By Investment Program

France is arguably the ultimate choice for second citizenship in Europe. The benefits of becoming a French passport holder are many, so here’s just some of the reasons to choose the French CBI program:

  • With an outlay of as little as €200,000, the French citizenship by investment program is excellent value
  • In becoming a French passport holder, an investor is gaining the citizenship of one of the most respected and revered nations on the planet
  • As a French citizen, applicants and their families will have complete freedom of movement throughout Europe’s Schengen Area
  • The French passport is the sixth most powerful in the world, with visa-free access to 186 countries. Those visa-free areas include the Americas (North, South, Central and the Caribbean) in its entirety, all of Western and parts of Eastern Europe, Southern Africa, parts of Asia, Southeast Asia and Australasia
  • EU Freedom – As a French citizen and EU passport holder, an investor has the freedom to live, work and indeed make their home in any European Union country without restrictions on time and with the same rights as a citizen born to that country.

Key Advantages Of Owning Property, Residing & Working In France

  • France enjoys possibly the highest living standards and quality of life in all of Europe, with the infrastructure of Germany and the UK, but the weather, natural scenery, food, drink and love of life shared with Italy and Spain
  • When it comes to business, France remains a global powerhouse, the fifth largest economy in the world behind only the US, China, Germany and Japan.
  • When it comes to political clout, when France speaks, the world – including the US listens. This level of global respect filters all the way down to how you will be treated when you travel with your French passport
  • France is always looking to expand its economy, and it is currently one of Europe’s most attractive jurisdictions for holding companies
  • France offers extremely attractive rates of corporate and private taxation
  • If you are looking to employ non-EU workers, France has excellent residence conditions for non-EU citizens
