Your Guide to a Golden Visa

Golden Visa - Residency by Investment

Golden Visa, also known as Investor Visa, is a Residency by Investment program offered by various European countries for investors who wish to migrate and live in Europe, or to maintain a second residency permit.

The countries that offer Residency by Investment, including Portugal, Greece, Spain, Malta, and Cyprus, are some of the most beautiful in the world, with hospitable people, wonderful climates, and excellent investment opportunities.

To qualify for a Golden Visa, applicants are required to purchase property within the relevant country. Real estate investment in Europe is considered a lucrative tangible asset that can generate rental returns; In addition, applicants have the right to sell the property once citizenship is granted.

The Golden Visa program is the most popular route to acquire European Citizenship. Most countries also allow applicants to apply for permanent residency and citizenship within five to ten years of receiving a Golden Visa. However, applicants do need to comply with the relevant terms and conditions and must have fulfilled the minimum stay requirements to be considered for citizenship and a passport.

Residency permit holders are only eligible to reside and conduct business within the country they have applied for, but they are allowed to travel for leisure or business visa-free to all countries within the Schengen Zone by using their European residency ID card.
