There are countries where it’s easy to obey citizenship such as Thailand, Spain, among others, who even sell residences but for a lot of money. We are talking about more than $ 500,000 dollars. But there are other countries where immigration laws are increasingly difficult, mostly European countries. Here we showcase a little more about those countries:
The law on Swiss citizenship states that there must be a minimum stay for 10 years in Switzerland to be able to access permanent residence, and then be able to access naturalization. People who are interested should submit an application that is examined in three levels (federal, cantonal, and municipal) and process could take several years.
In addition, they must meet certain requirements such as demonstrating their ability to integrate, have a good knowledge of life forms in Switzerland, respect the legal order and public safety, and the values of the Federal Constitution while show willingness to participate in economic life. You must also handle the official language.
Obtaining citizenship by naturalization in Japan is hard, as this is one of the most difficult immigration policies, as the applicant must renounce his other nationality. If they’re not compliant, the Ministry of Justice can demand a declaration of nationality election and if they do not answer it, the request for citizenship will be rejected.
Another drawback is the amount of requirements they request at the time of application, but unlike most countries, the applicant does not have to be a permanent resident to apply for Japanese naturalization. Among those requirements, living in the country for more than 5 years is one of the most important.
To obtain Austrian citizenship or residence, you need a lot of patience. You need to have lived in Austria for at least 10 years to be able to apply for citizenship. However, if you have been married to an Austrian for more than 5 years, you can also apply for it.
In order to be granted citizenship, you must meet requirements such as knowing how to handle the German language, losing your previous nationality, having no criminal records, not be a threat to Austrian society, and being capable enough to generate money and work.
Currently, only those people who excel in their trade (elite athletes, opera singers, ballet dancers, exceptional scientists, etc) have the possibility of obtaining nationality more easily and quickly.
So if your dream is to obtain nationality in these countries or others such as Germany or the United States, and if you are not a citizen of the EU (Only applicable to European countries), you have to arm yourself with a lot of patience, money, and time to take this migratory process.
