Residency by Investment

What Is Residency by Investment?

A residency by investment program requires a foreign national to make investments in the desired country to obtain residence there. After living there for a specific number of years, the immigrant can apply for permanent residence.
Residency by investment runs parallel to citizenship by investment. However, it requires a foreign national to have a permanent residence card for a certain amount of time before they are eligible for citizenship.
What is Temporary and Permanent Residency?
With a temporary residence permit, a foreign national can live in a country for a specified (limited) time duration to work or study through a specific kind of visa.
After a period of legal and continuous residence in the country and fulfilling certain conditions, foreign nationals, depending on the kind of visa, can qualify for a permanent residence permit.

With a permanent residence permit, foreign nationals get almost the same rights as someone who is a citizen. One way of getting a permanent residency card is through residency by investment programs.
