EUROPE CITIZENSHIP AND RESIDENCY BY INVESTMENT

South Africans seeking to emigrate, who are unable to meet the skills points criteria to move to the more traditionally popular destinations like the UK and Australia, are now increasingly seeking out alternative global locations that offer both the lifestyle and security that they desire for their families.

Europe  (EU) is one of these locations that is increasingly becoming an attractive destination for South African emigrants, who are also looking for the financial and job stability that many countries, like France, Germany and Portugal, can offer, with the added thrilling cultural and travel benefits of living of the continent.

Fortunately for South Africans, the doors to emigrate to several countries in the EU are wide open through their residency and citizenship by investment programmes. EU countries offer several investment options, which provide immigrants with transparent and respectable access to the continent’s society, way of life and economy.

Potential EU immigrants are required to invest their funds in a particular country, rather than donate to a government fund. The investor will later receive back the principal sum invested, together with any return on investment at the end of the investment period.

Immigrants may choose from a wide range of qualifying investment classes. These investment classes are ideal for entrepreneurs, investors, and families seeking increased mobility and a stable and business-friendly country in Europe.
