A citizenship offers a passport and all the rights and protections of a citizen of the
country through which the passport is issued. A permanent residence gives the
right to remain resident in the country with the eventual option of naturalization
after a specific period of time spent. Permanent residences often can see
changes depending on the government of each country. Citizenship is more
secure as the commitment to the citizen is long standing and permanent and
begins from the issuance of the passport document.
