Global Citizen Solutions is a full-service property investment firm focussed on finding the right investment, residency and/or citizenship programme for individuals wanting to secure their future and become global citizens. We are committed to meeting the needs of the individual, knowing that each situation is unique.
Global Citizen Solutions was created by people with first-hand experience in buying property abroad. Our team members are experienced in moving between European and non-European countries, and we understand how daunting the process of relocation can be. With that in mind our specialist team developed a strategic approach to a seamless and successful process, guiding our clients throughout.
Our international team also understands the challenges faced when obtaining European residency and citizenship, and we help make this process as simple and as stress-free as possible. We work hard to make sure that our clients feel at ease, knowing they are in safe hands.
The team has extensive experience in the key European countries offering citizenship and residency through property investment programmes. We are a multicultural and multilingual firm, with varied skills. Our committed sales team has a strong background in finance, hospitality, design, architecture, and property development. Our financial and legal teams have years of practice in tax, citizenship, and residency by investment.
Our service is committed to making sure that your financial and lifestyle needs are met, in addition to the requirements of your family. We are devoted to matching you with your ideal investment opportunity, golden visa route, and tax benefits.
