Streamlined and Interactive Process (SIP)

___________________

SIP STEP 1: Preliminary

CCS conducts one-on-one dialogue with clients to answer questions, clarify elements of the Program as well as determine eligibility. The client and CCS execute an Engagement Letter detailing the services to be provided including a quotation of all fees and costs. Clients choose their preferred Option for citizenship and their real estate property if applicable.

 

SIP STEP 2: Preparation and Submission of Application

CCS Citizenship Specialist Agents provide clients with Application Kits comprising application forms, customized checklists, guidelines and sample documents to guide the preparation of their applications.  CCS continues to provide informed advice and assistance to clients as required. CCS Specialists undertake a robust review of each client’s documents before submitting the application to the Citizenship by Investment Unit (CIU).

 

SIP STEP 3: Decision

At this stage, the CIU will conduct its due diligence exercise in relation to the application. CCS maintains continuous dialogue with the CIU to ensure that any queries emerging from the due diligence process are responded to effectively and quickly. At the end of this process, the CIU will issue one of the following decisions: Approved in Principle; Delayed for Cause or Denied.

SIP STEP 4: Issue of Certificate of Registration and Passport

Once a client’s application has been approved in principle, registration fees become payable as well as the investment or donation amount. Upon satisfaction of these requirements, the CIU issues the Certificate of Registration for the client. CCS makes application to the Passport Office for the client’s passport, upon receipt of which it is safely and securely delivered to the client.
