I thank One World Migration for the opportunity to move to Turkey with their help. I looked to relocate my company to be closer to my European partners and suppliers from the Middle East.


I first came to Portugal as a tourist 3 years ago. Having assessed the situation and got acquainted with this country, I decided that I wanted to stay here to live. Thanks to the efforts of One World Migration, this became possible.


The decisive factor for me in my decision to obtain Grenadian citizenship was the possibility of a visa-free visit to Europe, where my husband and I love to come both on business trips and on vacation. Thank you One World Migration!
