Ready to get EU residency with maximum flexibility?

Europe has a number of residency-by-investment (Golden Visa) programs, offering residency (and in several cases, fast-track citizenship) in exchange for making a significant investment in a country. Countries currently offering residency-by-investment programs include:

  • Portugal 
  • Ireland 
  • Malta 
  • Cyprus 
  • Greece 
  • Spain 

These programs offer a lot more freedom and flexibility than the passive income residency routes. Residency-by-investment. program rules don’t normally require the investor to live in the country or become a tax resident (unless they wish to). For citizenship, the investment accrues the years on behalf of the investor. It’s as if the investment lives in the country on your behalf.
