Residency

Residency by Investment Programmes

By contrast, residency by investment programmes are far more numerous than those offering citizenship. The largest concentration of such programmes are in the European Union, commonly referred to as golden visa schemes. This is because the EU is where many investors tend to carry out business or relocate to.

CS Global Partners carefully selected two investor visa programmes that we recommend to our clients: those of Portugal and Singapore.
