As Seen On :
We provide our clients with “golden visas” for a variety of reasons, several benefits including freedom to travel, asset security, personal insurance, family education, a legacy for future family members and much more. When combined with the right investment, the decision can result in security as well as significant financial returns.
Golden visas are a highly beneficial form of permanent residency, providing a stable future for generations to come. Therefore, those who wish to pursue a life in the European Union will be able to look forward to a host of advantages in one of the most lucrative regions in the world.
Typically, permanent residency and citizenship here are related to real estate. With an increasing number of countries in the EU joining the initiative, you now have greater freedom of choice than ever. From Portugal to Cyprus, Spain and Greece, there are a multitude of options for our clients to consider. Our team of experts will guide you through the laws applicable within each country, along with details of costs and conditions of the visa to ensure you have a thorough understanding every step of the way.
The underlying principle of the golden visa is, however, the same across all countries: if you are able to make an investment in a European country, you will in turn be granted a residence visa.
Aside from prominent business prospects and a higher quality of life, one of the reasons many seek residency visas in Europe, is due to the greater freedom of travel. The Schengen Area which is comprised of 26 countries, is a highly sought after region because of the expansive network of countries that are conveniently knitted together. Rich in vivid cultures, unique gastronomical experiences and individual traditions, these countries have more than security and investments to offer. With a golden visa secured, it is also possible to enter and exit their common borders without a passport.
COUNTRIES THAT OFFER PERMANENT RESIDENCY THROUGH REAL ESTATE
You can secure immediate residency in Spain with a €500,000 investment in real estate. Though the visa is generally issued for one year, you may apply for a residency permit at the end of the year. Additionally, immediate family members which includes spouses and dependents will also be taken into account under the visa. The €500,000 investment may also be invested in one single property, or multiple.
Portugal boasts not only stunning landscapes, but also a very attractive taxation system. Furthermore, Portugal also offers the most convenience in terms of retaining your golden visa, as visa holders only need visit the country 7 days every year to maintain it. Property investments may start from €350,000 or €500,000 depending on certain criteria, so speak to one of our professionals for more information. Immediate family members are also included in the visa.
The island nation of Malta is picturesque and highly conducive for those seeking permanent residency for a number of reasons. Property purchases should amount to at least €350,000, and family members can also be included. In addition, it is required to donate €650,000 to the government and make an investment of €150,000 in Government bonds. The Malta Residence and Visa Programme (MRVP) also offers a 5 year residency period, after which it is renewable.
With its sunshine, rich culture and extensive history, Greece has fast become one of the primary choices in Europe. Interested applicants are required to make a minimum investment of €250,000, and it must also be noted that the terms of the visa here are different. Valid for 5 years, investors are allowed to live though not work in Greece, and should the property be sold, the visa will be re-assigned to the new owner.
Investors interested in securing citizenship through investment in Cyprus will need to invest around €300,000 minimum in property. Once permanent residency has been granted, the holder of a Cypriot permanent residency can travel back and forth from his home country to Cyprus. The permanent residency also extends to immediate family members.

WHY INVEST IN GOLDEN VISA?
Golden Visa Programme
Of the many different citizenship & immigration programmes we offer, our golden visa option is a highly sought after one. For those who are not familiar with them, golden visas are yet another form of citizenship-by-investment, solely reserved to Europe. A few European countries offer golden visas based on investment in real estate, the amount of which varies depending on which country you are moving to. Each of the countries we represent comes with its own set of characteristics, which we will extensively assess with you to gauge your requirements wholly. Over the years, as the proliferation of immigration opportunities have increased, more and more countries have joined the list of those offering golden visas.
Much like the benefits found with our other citizenship programmes, golden visas too offer a host of advantages for you and your family. As the programme offers a form of permanent residency in a European country, applicants can look forward to the very notable change in their travel restrictions. Citizens of EU nations enjoy enhanced travel opportunities, with the ability to live, work and study in other European countries when necessary. Needless to say, this in turn produces alternate openings, effectively broadening your horizons. For those who conduct business, this is all the more lucrative as it allows you to explore potential market openings and possibilities of expansion.
Recipients of the golden visa will also be entitled to excellence in education and healthcare, as Europe places stringent regulations on these monitoring their quality. We cater to golden visas in Spain, Portugal, Malta, Greece and Cyprus, and our experts are well-versed in the protocols that govern each, for a smooth application process. We analyse the pros and cons of each for your knowledge, allowing us to work personally with you for the best possible outcome. Different countries suit different purposes, so which you opt for will be an entirely subjective choice.
Golden visas are typically issued on property investments, so it is important that you also assess the country’s real estate market. Some countries even offer a return-on-investment, which means that you may even earn back from it.
