21st annual IWTP conference - 'Now I want a passport'

‘Now I want a passport’ – Immigration and naturalisation issues 
 
Many classic spy movies feature the suitcase filled with cash and multiple passports for a quick getaway. Increasingly it is not spies that are looking for a second passport, but high net worth individuals. Obtaining citizenship or residence rights in another country, combined with the ability to leave one country quickly and settle in another, is becoming increasingly important for wealthy individuals concerned about a world in the grip of unprecedented economic and political turmoil.
