Mumbai, 11th April 2022: The eleventh edition of International Residency & Citizenship Conclave 2022 was held from 8th to 9th April 2022 at St. Regis Mumbai.
The Conclave was a unique platform that offers various options and prospects of residency & citizenship across the world to Indian residents.

Held in conjunction with International Real Estate Expo (IREX), the show was dedicated to citizenship by investment, residency and immigration.

Apart from the exhibition, a conference was organised on the first day of the show which focussed on various aspects, prospects & opportunities of real estate and immigration by investment with individual country presentations addressed by real estate developers and immigration experts and lawyers from leading international companies specialised in this field. This conference focussed mainly on the global investment opportunities along with various financial and legal implications associated with investing abroad. A special panel discussion on the recently reauthorized EB5 Investor Visa Program of the US government was held by EB5 Experts on future prospects and opportunities of the program.
According to the publication ‘Investment Migration Insider’ the world investment immigration market is growing at an annual rate of 23% and if the trend continues it would reach USD 100 billion in revenue by 2025.
Worldwide, demand for immigration by investment has been on a strong growth path over the last few years. Covid-19 has given further impetus to the steadily growing appeal of investment migration. The key reasons why HNIs look for international investment is the opportunity to invest abroad and diversify wealth and have access to global investment and operations besides tax benefits and visa-free travel. Investment in a second passport also gives the investors access to career, educational, and lifestyle opportunities on a global scale, for investors and their families.
Lured by multiple benefits, Indian residents looked for foreign citizenship through investment opportunities. Indians, at least many wealthy ones, are looking to invest abroad as never before. They want to go global, explore emerging business and international alliances, avail tax benefits, get visa free travel and avail subsidized children’s education with future career prospects.
