Residency Overview

A residence permit is a permit that allows a person to live in a certain country with conditions that must be met. Residence can be temporary or permanent.

Golden visa programs offer investors the opportunity to obtain a residence permit in another country through various investment channels. A residence permit can provide many benefits for investors, but it is not the same as being a citizen of another country. The distinction between citizenship and resident status can be confusing, but the Golden Visa program offers residency, not outright citizenship.

The Following Are The Most

Common Types Of Investments

Many countries grant Residency to people who contribute a minimum amount to the country’s economy. The donation/contribution option is one of them.

Investing in real estate is one of the most popular ways to obtain residency by investment. Most countries have a real estate option, and many of them allow investors to buy real estate or shares in a luxury resort in order to obtain citizenship.

Many countries allow investors to buy government bonds or securities to obtain residency. Government bonds are considered a safe option, but do not bring huge returns.

On the other hand, private securities carry a higher risk but can provide higher returns on investment.

Some countries offer applicants the opportunity to apply for residency by starting a business. Some countries require applicants to invest a certain amount of capital in their business, while others grant residency based on the number of jobs a particular business creates and maintains for a certain number of years.

This option is unique to the Malta residency by Investment program and requires applicants to invest in more than one route. Applicants will be required to invest in real estate as well as donate to the government.
