Many countries have started residence permit programs for investors under the names of “golden visa”, “investor visa” etc. in the recent years. These programs may be categorized in citizenship programs and permanent residence programs.
Portugal Golden Visa Program
Main countries which grant citizenship by investment programs are Antigua Barbuda, Cyprus, Austria, Dominica, Malta and St Kitts & Nevis. Countries which offer permanent residence permit by investment programs are Canada, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, England and USA. These programs consist of two trivets as investors and states. The most attractive side of these programs for investors is that these lead the investors and their family members to EU citizenship in shortest and fastest way. On the other side, a significant contribution is provided to the economy of these countries.
The success of the programs vary depending on the set forth criteria such as investment amount, residency conditions, bureaucracy. Therefore, the results of these programs vary depending on the relevant country. Programs for Portugal and Spain may be given as example for this fact. Accordingly, Portugal has better results than Spain in Golden Visa Program due to its simple and flexible conditions. Golden Visa Programs for Portugal and Spain contain similarities in certain points, however, these programs differ in investment amounts and types, citizenship procedures. In order to show these differences better, Golden Visa Programs for these countries should be reviewed from a closer perspective.
