How to Get a Cheap Second Passport
5 Ways to Get a Free Second Passport
The world is full of expensive passport offers. Some legal and some definitely not.
A second passport is a useful insurance policy if you ever need to escape from your home country. It can also provide travel benefits, such as visa free travel to countries that aren’t visa free for your own passport.
If you don’t fancy spending $150,000 on buying a passport from St Kitts or Dominica what are your options?
Find an Irish Ancestor
The Irish passport is a class A travel document and if you have an Irish parent or grandparent you automatically qualify for an Irish passport.
Many citizens of the UK, Canada and the USA have Irish relatives. If you have an Irish granny don’t wait.
Get yourself registered on the foreign births register and you’ll be in receipt of a shiny, new Irish passport in jig time.
2.Live in Argentina for as little as 2 Years
It’s a little known fact that the South American nation of 40 million people has not updated its citizenship laws for over 100 years.
If you become a legal resident of Argentina you can apply to the court in Buenos Aires 2 years after spending only 6 months a year in the country.
I know at least one person who did not even bother to get a legal residence permit and succeeded in getting citizenship after 2 years of staying there full time.
3. Marry a Cape Verdean
The former Portuguese colony is one of the few remaining countries where you can get an instant free passport by marrying one of its citizens.
If you can convince a Cape Verdean to marry you can apply for citizenship of the African nation immediately.
4. Have a Child in Brazil
Having a child born in Brazil is another way to get a cheap second passport. Under Brazilian law your child would be a citizen on birth.
The child’s parents would be eligible to apply for Brazilian citizenship after one year. If you’re in a position to shop for a jurisdiction where your next child is born, Brazil is worth considering.
5. If You’re Jewish or Have a Jewish Mother get Israeli Citizenship
If you’re Jewish or if you become Jewish or your Mother’s Jewish you can become an Israeli citizen under their law of return.
Israel passed the law in 1950, guaranteeing every Jew the right to return to the homeland. The law grants the right to Israeli citizenship if you have one Jewish grandparent or if you’re married to a Jew.
If you qualify it’s another opportunity to get a cheap second passport.
