Why do you need a European Golden Visa?
Saad Ahsan Immigration Law Firm is working in the immigration industry for more than two decades. We are dealing with different types of clients for years now. Being a Pioneer immigration firm in Pakistan, we observe and identify the inclination of each client in the first interaction. We have seen people taking much more interest in European Golden Visa Programs now amid all the economic & political unrest. The reasons vary from client to client but some significant factors are as follows:
- The world is facing economic inflation but being a citizen of a developing country, economic unrest affects you more.
- Being a Pakistani citizen, you will agree on how unfortunate our healthcare conditions are. The appropriate measures are never taken on time.
- As Pakistan is still way behind in the modern pattern of education, the country has seen a severe loss in the education industry as well.
- The unstable economic & healthcare situation affects the value of your passport which cause travel restrictions for people who love to travel.
With many other aspects, these 4 factors seem to be the trigger points that Pakistanis are taking more interest to consider a plan B. Also, taking this huge step is very important to expand the business out of Pakistan so that in any situation of unrest, you have a secure place to move with family.
