There are other excellent residency by investment programs in the European Union, where the residents can obtain the permanent status and later obtain the citizenship and the passports.


Belgium, Portugal and Spain launched the most-known schemes for High Net Worth Individuals from third countries. These programs allow investors to change their temporary status to permanent residency to qualify for citizenship.
