حول الهجرة و خياراتها و شروطها
Peru has an interesting history in offering citizenship. Back in the 1990s Peru was so broke that they offered citizenship for an easy, flat rate of $25,000 and you didn’t even have to go to Peru to get it (New York Times/1993: “Peru Citizenship Sells for $25,000“)… you could just pay at a local embassy and receive your documents. In retrospect it was a great bargain.
Unfortunately, as often happens, the deal didn’t last very long and either due to ineptitude or under pressure from the international community as well as Peruvian citizens (who felt it was shameful how easy it was to become Peruvian) it faded away.
However, in recent years, Peru has been economically rising and has realized that attracting wealthy (or at least reasonably well-off foreigners) to come to their country and invest is something that should be sought out.
Now, Peru, in my opinion, offers the best option with the greatest ease and price of any other option currently being offered by any other country.
Quality passport. Different people want passports for different reasons but if what you are looking for is a second passport that is easy to travel with then Peru is and will soon be one of the best outside of passports like EU, UK, Swiss, US and Canadian passports. Just with the residency card alone you can travel visa-free throughout Mercosur (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Ecuador). You can’t even do that with a US or Canadian passport as both Brazil and Paraguay require US and Canadian citizens to apply for a visa to visit. As well, it was announced in May and expected that in December Peruvian passport holders will have visa-free travel to the EU. And talks are in progress and it is expected Peruvian passport holders will have visa-free travel to the US sometime in 2016 or 2017. Many other countries like Canada and Australia often follow the US’ lead on visa requirements and so visa-free travel to places like Canada and Australia could soon follow.
Ease of acquiring residency and citizenship. To start the process you just need to work with a specialized agent who knows the process to help you apply at a local Peruvian embassy. The residency applications are generally approved within 45-90 days and once approved you have six months allowable (although you can go at any time) before you go to Peru to finalize your residency visa. Once you have that you then can live wherever you like and after 24 months from the time of receiving your residency visa you can apply for citizenship. This is much faster and much easier than most other countries where a certain amount of time is required (sometimes many years) of living in the country is required and often it is 4 years or more of residency before you can apply for citizenship. As well, Peru is one of the few countries in the region that constitutionally allows you to hold more than one passport so you can keep your other passport(s) all legally as well. Also, Peru is one of the only countries in the world currently welcoming nearly all nationalities including Middle Easterners who are being shut out of citizenship options on a near daily basis. In fact, numerous Syrians, Libyans and others are flocking to Peru for this opportunity as are many from the EU including Greeks, and of course, Spaniards, who are trying to escape their dying economies and make a new life for themselves.
Cheap. Most other legal citizenship programs where you can attain citizenship in two years or less cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars… or even millions. Currently this program is being offered for only $25,000 USD and installment payments are an option. And once you process the paperwork through a local Peruvian embassy and get approved (taking 30-45 days on average currently) you are ready to make your trip where you will receive your residency card within 7 business days!
Edit: it is possible to get a tourist visa in Saudi Arabia and claim asylum with access to free medical care and education. I have asked a colleague to get back to me with information on free housing. It will take 2 years of residency in Peru to become a citizen and get visa-free access to 118 countries. If you manage to get a Saudi government scholarship, you should be able to live a very comfortable life with $1500 a month
