Permanent Residency Programs

Several countries offer Residence by Investment programs (RBIs), which allow foreign nationals to receive Permanent Resident status if they meet the conditions set by each country’s government. Each country sets its own rules and regulations for their RBI program, with qualifying criteria varying significantly.

These include making a qualifying investment – investing a minimum amount in real estate, government funds, or company bonds. Several other personal criteria must also be met such as a clean criminal record and a minimum age requirement, among other requirements.  

Successful applicants who meet all requirements receive a Permanent Residency card (also known as a Golden Visa) after a number of months. Permanent Residents are not Citizens of a country, but are eligible for Citizenship after residing in their chosen country continuously for several years.

Permanent Residents are entitled to live and study in a country indefinitely, so long as they renew their Permanent Residency card and status and maintain their qualifying investment. Permanent Residents can also work in certain countries as well, although many nations permit Permanent Residents to establish a business but not their employment.
