Residence- and citizenship-by-investment programs have firmly established themselves over the past few years as the new frontier in terms of freedom, flexibility, and future-readiness, both for the countries issuing these programs and for the individual investors participating in them.

There are more than 60 active programs today, with Moldova and Montenegro — both fast-growing Eu
