European Residence by Investment Programmes allow individuals and their families to gain access to prime education, a safe and secure jurisdiction, and to have a base in Europe for personal and professional purposes. Our team of investment migration consultants can guide you through the various EU Golden Visa options and their application process.

European Residence by Investment Programmes 

Residence by Investment Programmes, or the so-called Golden Visa programmes, allow Individuals and their families to be granted a residence in a European country through an investment which can take one or multiple forms. 

Normally, EU residency by investment has a very strong or exclusive real estate component, like the Portugal, Malta or Spain Golden Visa Programmes.

Having different investment thresholds and catering for different needs, the European Residence by Investment Programmes grant the main applicant and their family members the ability to reside in the country and, therefore, to travel within the Schengen Area on a visa-free basis.

Residency in an EU country means the ability to live freely in the country of choice and gaining access to all Schengen Area member states for up to 90 days in a 180 days period. 

Even though they are not direct Citizenship by Investment programmes, such European investor visa can be a stepping stone in the path of obtaining personal and financial security through investing in stable and growing economies.

Malta Golden Visa

The Malta Permanent Residence Programme (MPRP), also known as the Malta Golden Visa, allows individuals and their family members to be granted a residence in Malta after making an investment in the country and passing stringent due diligence checks. The MPRP replaced the Malta Residence and Visa Programme (MRVP) on the 29th March 2021.

Portugal Golden Visa

Portugal Golden Visa Programme

With its unique advantages and a relatively low investment threshold, this programme is very popular. With it was coined the term "Golden Visa" for the Residence by Investment programmes, and requires a full investment in Real Estate starting from €350,000 and leads to long-term residence. Eventually, after 5 continuous years, a citizenship can be obtained.

Spain Golden Visa

Spain Golden Visa Programme

The less promoted option in the Residence by Investment industry but no less successful: the Spanish Golden Visa programme allows applicants and their families to obtain residence in the country against minimum investment of €500,000 in Real Estate that can either be rented or left for private or family use.

We chose Malta as our new permanent home and CSB Group to help us through the residency process. They went way beyond our expectations treating our application as if it were their own. Their service was nothing short of stellar from understanding our needs preparation of the required documentation, and follow-up phase during a period with the sharpest movement restrictions. Malta deserves a place on every investor’s radar, mostly because of the surprising efficiency permeating the place, efficiency which starts with CSB.
