How To Become A Dutch Citizen

The Netherland Citizenship by Investment program gives ambitious foreign (non-EU) entrepreneurs  the pathway to become a Dutch citizen and enjoy all of the amazing, life changing benefits that would come with the status of EU passport holder.

When someone from a non-EU background suddenly becomes an EU citizen and passport holder,  the results are dramatic. That individual may have been successful in their own country and within the limited field they were able to trade in, but becoming an EU passport holder will multiply their business opportunities a thousand fold.

As the proud owner of Dutch citizenship and a Netherlands/EU passport, the applicant will automatically have the right to visit, live and work in all European Union countries, plus have visa free access to the UK and US. Just having access to Europe, the UK and US markets are a game changer for any aspiring billionaire businessperson.

Dutch CBI Program Requirements

The Netherlands 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, the Netherlands are keen to take on new investors who – via Dutch  citizenship – will continue to add to the Netherland’s economy.

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

  • Have proven assets of at least €175,000
  • To be willing to make an investment in the Netherlands by way of a real estate purchase for the minimum of €175,000
  • To then go ahead and purchase either property or land to the value of at least €175,000 within the borders of Netherlands
  • To allow 100 working days for the Dutch citizenship process to run its course
  • To maintain purchased real estate or land for a period of five years minimum

About The Netherlands

The Netherlands is a European country located in the northeastern edge of the continent. It shares land borders with Germany and Belgium and has a coastline to the North Sea. The Netherlands is country of great tradition, significance and standing both historically and currently.

The capital of Holland is Amsterdam, and its second city is Rotterdam. The Hague is Holland’s third largest city, and the home of the International Court of Justice. The Netherlands is a Christian country, and while its population speak Dutch as a first language, 98% speak English also.  The Dutch are a tall race, in fact they are officially the tallest people in the world, with an average height of just over 6’ across both genders.

When Holland Ruled Europe

The Netherlands is a nation of great historical significance. Between the 1400s and 1700s, the Netherlands were a great power with an Empire that rivalled that of the Dutch , Spanish and British.

The Dutch were astute traders and excellent politicians, when William of Orange married Queen Mary of England in the 1600s, he was allowed to become King of England and in effect run the country, as those British around him who could easily have done away with him, realized he would do a better job than any English candidate!

To this day the Dutch are regarded as among the most highly intelligent of Europeans, hard workers, and excellent business people. Whenever Dutch expats choose to live and work abroad, especially with the EU, they invariably thrive, and before long are running a successful business and employing local citizens.

You May Already Look Dutch!

Along with neighbors Belgium, Holland opened its doors to migrants in the 1960s. Today the Netherlands has a population of 17 million,  and while 78% of that population are Dutch by birth, a significant number have Arab, Asian, African and Afro-Caribbean heritage. It is not unusual for a Dutch tourist to be black, or look Asian or Arabic.

Of course, this is great news for the potential Netherlands citizenship by investment applicant, who wished to blend right in and look Dutch when using their brand new Netherlands passport. The reality is an entrepreneur of African or Asian appearance using a Dutch passport would arouse less raised eyebrows than one using  Czech, Polish or Hungarian documentation.

  • EU Freedom – As a Dutch  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

What Exactly Is Citizenship by Investment?

While 99% of people visiting this website will be well versed in CBI, for somebody stumbling upon this article and scratching their head as to its meaning: Citizenship by Investment (CBI) is the increasingly common practice of a nation making its passport and citizenship available to a foreign investor in return for a financial investment, usually in the form of a real estate purchase – just as long as said investor is of sound character and can pass a thorough background check.

Historically, the birthplace of CBI is the Caribbean, with several island nations offering a combination of discreet banking and second citizenship. Wealthy business people and investors from the US, China, Eastern and Western Europe, Latin America etc flock to take advantage of the miniscule taxation and legendarily discreet banking provided by countries like St Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, Grenada and the Cayman Islands.

However,  the people who seek out CBI with a European Union country are a different kind of person and do so for completely different reasons. These are highly talented and wealthy young entrepreneurs from outside the EU, UK and US, looking to improve their freedom of movement and increase their business opportunities.

Usually they hail from the Middle East, Asia and Africa, are highly successful business people in their own countries, but who find their own citizenship and passport stifling and limiting.

These are individuals that are keen to be able to live and work throughout Europe and advance their business interests worldwide. An EU passport on average grants its holder access to 170 countries visa free, more than triple what the average passport from African, Asian and Middle Eastern countries provides.
