What is a Golden Visa?
A Golden Visa in Europe is a government-sponsored program used to boost a country’s economy, by attracting non-EU citizens to invest in exchange for European residency and citizenship. Depending on the country, investment options vary: you can for example decide to invest in real estate, government bonds, businesses, etc.
These schemes generally have very minimal stay requirements, in other words, you can get an EU passport without having to stay in Europe all the time. Holding an EU passport allows you to travel visa-free in most of the world’s countries, to live, work, and study in Europe, and to have unlimited access to the Schengen area. Last but not least, the entire family of the investor is eligible for the benefits of the Golden Visa.
