Get EU Citizenship

Hi, I'm Samantha North. Here's why I founded Digital Émigré.

In 2016, a political decision in the UK took away my rights to live freely across the 27 other countries of the European Union. I was really unhappy about that, so I took action to get EU citizenship back.
I created an online business so I could earn money from anywhere. Then I researched citizenship pathways across the whole EU. I chose Portugal, for its excellent combination of lifestyle, immigration and tax factors. In summer 2020 I moved to Lisbon.
By 2025, I’ll be eligible to apply for Portuguese (and EU) citizenship. That means I can live, work, study and retire across 28 countries, including Portugal, the UK, and the rest of the eurozone. I’ve chosen to live in a country that fits my values.
With Digital Émigré, I help people design similar journeys. Clients have included fellow Brits escaping Brexit, Americans ditching toxic Trumpism, and Hongkongers rejecting authoritarian Chinese rule.
Along with my team of local partners, I guide clients to find the best EU country for their specific needs, build portable income, secure residency using passive income visas, and get EU citizenship.

We've helped 100s of people start their journey to get EU citizenship

Here's what they say about us
