Canada – one of the few countries that allows relatively easy to obtain residence permits to people who have no close relatives in Canada, but are highly professionals or successful businessmen. In particular, in order to obtain an immigrant visa in the U.S., you must either have close relatives living in the U.S. and have U.S. citizenship or residence, or you must prove that you are oppressed in your home country and go to the category ‘refugee’. In Canada, except those listed options, you can also go to the class ‘independent immigrant’ if you have a good education and / or have good professional skills, as well as the class of ‘entrepreneur’ or ‘investor’, if you have a successful experience in business or are willing to invest your existing funds into the economy Canada. Canada has an immigration plan for more than 200 thousand people per year, making it perhaps the most accessible country in the world. Having a permanent resident of Canada, after three years you can petition to obtain a Canadian citizenship. Typically, the process of acquiring citizenship takes from six months to 10 months.
For comparison, to obtain U.S. citizenship, you must live in the U.S. with a residence permit for 5 years. In many other economically developed countries stay in the country, which is sufficient to apply for citizenship, more than 7-8 years. Canada provides a dual citizenship. That is, you do not lose your current nationality and acquire Canadian citizenship. What is it in practice for you? For example, you are a citizen of Russia and immigriruete in Canada. After obtaining the status of permanent resident of Canada you are free to travel to Russia (without a visa) and return to Canada (also without a visa). After three years of residence in Canada you get Canadian citizenship. You can go back to Russia to live and work there, being able at any time to enter Canada and continue to live in Canada, enjoying all the benefits of its residents.
