Do you want to live in Africa? I can recommend a safe, clean, modern and beautiful country. In Botswana, you can enjoy nature and profit, because Botswana offers excellent business solutions as well.

Today, we are talking about moving and living in exotic and charming Africa. Of course, Africa is enormous, and you can choose from 54 countries. But Botswana is a special one. First of all, Botswana is beautiful. Botswana is also a safe and secure country. The level of crime is on the European level; I mean very low. Botswana is clean and modern, take a look at any video you can find on YouTube.
And Botswana has a residency by investment program. It is essential because Botswana is not that country where you can buy your way to citizenship easily. We offer immigration services in Botswana but let’s talk about it later.

I wrote my first post about Botswana immigration in 2014 and started to channel clients to Botswana in 2017. Since then, a lot of small investors arrived from everywhere, but most of them are South Africans, looking for a secure place, where they can live and make money.

So, I met my local partner, Magdeline Ketlhokile, who is the managing director of Almega Botswana, and since then we work together. She is not only a colleague and friend, but she is the market leader immigration expert in Botswana. Today she will help us to understand the details of a complex, point-based immigration system. She will tell us the step-by-step guide to the residency by investment program. Then we take a closer look at the investment options and all the necessary knowledge you need to start living in this African country. If you listen carefully to her words, you will understand that it is not that difficult to become a resident and later a citizen of Botswana if you invest the cost of a kitchen in Europe or the US in this beautiful African country. Please, let me introduce Magdeline Ketlhokile.
