INVEST FOR RESIDENCY IN EUROPE
There are several residency by investment programmes in Europe that grant residency, often through real estate investment but without the requirement to reside. These programmes are especially popular with investors not wishing to emigrate and move their family but require flexibility should the need ever reside. They often come with accompanying travel freedom across the EU Schengen zone. Eventually if permanent residency is undertaken by the investor and their family then citizenship of the country can usually be applied for.
The Portugal Golden Visa program has proven to be the most popular scheme in Europe with investors attracted to its flexibility and benefits. Launched in 2012 the investor visa program has been actively promoted internationally by the Portuguese government. An investment of €500,000 (or €350,000 reduced option) in real estate in Portugal will gain a residency permit for a family including dependent children. The golden visa can be renewed every two years providing the applicant spends two weeks in the country every two years.
Attorneys from Totu Legal partnered with law firms all over Europe and assist clients in getting their residency by investment.
