Excuse me if i posted in the wrong end of the forum.
I am trying to attract the right type of crowd...
Closer to the point:
Current citizenship benchmarks in Europe are 5+ years of legal employment or legal residence(employment mainly).
Self-Employent is not considered employment.
You could also start a business, but you have to have 100K+ euro and you generally have to employ 1+ local or eu workers.
The question here is: how do you trade for a living, legally stay in europe and at the end of the 5+ year period get the citizenship???
The only thing i could come up with is an "employment deal" where someone "employs you", signs paperwork for you and "pays you" for 5+ years, where in reality you pay them for their services.
Would be wonderful to hear thoughts and scenarios this community has on the subject including contacts to make arrangements.
Please, no marriage or european ancestry comments.
