Why Choose TWA?

We highly recommend interested applicants use representatives or agents to apply for the Citizenship by Investment Program.

These professionals have expertise and knowledge in the application process, ensuring that applicants meet all requirements and submit accurate applications. They can help streamline the process, provide access to networks, and facilitate communication with relevant authorities. Agents also offer support during the due diligence process, ensuring compliance with legal regulations. Moreover, they can bridge language and cultural gaps for applicants unfamiliar with the country’s official language or culture. 

However, it’s crucial to choose reputable professionals authorized by the government to ensure a successful and smooth application process.
