Citizenship By Investment (CIP) pricing can vary greatly, with entry level Caribbean programmes starting from as little as $100,000 (donation) for a single applicant, whereas the Cyprus Citizenship Programme requiring a property investment of at least €2.5 million.

The Turkish Citizenship By Investment Programme, recently launched, offers foreign investors the ability to gain a Turkish passport by making a property investment of only $250,000. At this attractive price point, the Turkey programme became one of the top investment citizenship schemes in the world within 18 months of launch.

Another relatively new programme, the Montenegro Citizenship By Investment Programme, offers investment citizenship subject to the acquisition of a property worth €350,000 or more.
