EU residency programs offer families access to Europe
Residency by investment programs offer investors and their families an affordable route to gaining temporary or permanent residency in Europe. They give families a backup option and peace of mind, and tend to be more affordable than the European citizenship programs.
What are the benefits of acquiring residency in the EU?
Holding an EU residency card grants the holder the freedom to live, work or study in the country of residency as well as the freedom to travel visa free in any of the Schengen zone countries. Residency does not, however, give the freedom to live anywhere in the EU - citizenship would be required for this.
What are the requirements to acquire a second residency?
Residency Programs are some of the most popular programs as the investment criteria are typically lower than that of the citizenship programs. There are several different programs available and it is important to understand the benefits and drawbacks of each.
Typically the required investment is either into real estate or Government bonds, which must be held for around 5 years. Each program's requirements differ depending on what is prescribed by the legal framework.
