The second citizenship for Lebanese is greater than the issue of entering the countries or establishing companies. Rather, the most important thing is an alternative plan in light of all the security and economic conditions that the Lebanon is going through.
Many Lebanese are racing to obtain a second nationality, and this desire was not born today, but rather several years ago, even the Lebanese ranked first in the Middle East as the most nationality in the Middle East to obtain Caribbean citizenship.
The main reason is that Lebanon is going through the following:
⊙ Lack of infrastructure for successful investment
⊙ Economic, social and financial collapse
⊙ High prices, inflation, poverty and insecurity
⊙ The collapse of the national currency and services
⊙ One of the 13 worst passports in the world
⊙ Difficulty obtaining entry and residence visas in most countries
⊙ Diplomatic and political tensions
There are many ways to obtain a second citizenship for Lebanese residing in Lebanon and other countries. They are divided as follows:
The child has the same nationality as the parents, regardless of where he is born.
Upon proof of ancestry from a country, the Lebanese individual is entitled to acquire the nationality of that country.
The common method used by the Lebanese that aims to obtain citizenship from a country after residing for a long time while learning the country’s language and traditions.
It means the possibility of obtaining citizenship after marrying a citizen of the concerned country and waiting for a certain period until it obtains its nationality.
It is the easiest, fastest and safest solution to obtain citizenship. Because the previous methods require:
◇ Residence for 7 or 10 years, in addition to mastering the language of the country and paying taxes correctly.
◇ Not all countries grant their nationality to people born in them.
◇ It is not easy to prove the existence of clear origins of states.
◇ Difficult conditions for entitlement to citizenship through marriage.
Citizenship by investment, in turn, is the only and easiest solution to obtaining citizenship within a few months, with generally convenient and simple investments.
In our articles, we chose the Caribbean nationality because of the many advantages that these programs enjoy, and on the other hand, Lebanese citizens need it for reasons that we will mention in detail.
The Caribbean Union has quite a few beautiful countries and islands to choose from, with St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, Grenada, Dominica and Antigua and Barbuda at the top.
The difference between them is slight, for example, if you want to enter China without a visa, you must have Dominica citizenship, and if you want to obtain a US work visa for 10 years, then Grenada is the best option, with some slight differences in the ages of people who can be added with the main applicant. Read our Citizenship by Investment articles to learn more about these programs and to decide which option is best for you.

▷ Proof of the availability of the necessary funds for investment

The wonderful thing about Caribbean citizenship is that it is very beneficial for Lebanese businessmen who reside in Lebanon or one of the Gulf countries and do not want to change their place of residence.
Caribbean countries are a great choice for these people for three reasons:
Firstly, the Caribbean countries have a very strong passport that enables you to enter 150 countries without a visa, and all the major countries are on the list, starting from Britain to Canada and China, all the way to all the Schengen countries. With the help of this, Lebanese businessmen can open international bank accounts and companies or expand an already existing company across the world.
The second reason is that Caribbean citizenship does not require any residency, neither before nor after obtaining citizenship, and therefore there are no obligations on investors.
The third reason is that Caribbean countries accept dual citizenship and do not share citizenship information with third parties.
Another advantage for Lebanese citizens is the eligibility to add family members, make the most of free education systems, and obtain scholarships from prestigious universities by virtue of being citizens of these countries, not to mention the appropriate health programs, the wonderful tropical weather, and the beautiful nature of these countries.
Getting rid of the preconceived notion of the Lebanese because of the nationality they hold. The second nationality is evidence that the Lebanese citizen has no criminal record. Because the Caribbean countries are neutral countries and other countries look to them as having a strong security system.
These (Caribbean) countries have Mutual strong diplomacy with the rest of the world and do not want to lose these features.
