WHY / HOW TO GET ……………

In the last decade, we have witnessed a globally developing interest in obtaining a residence/temporary residence permit, different from the one you have.

There are many reasons for that, but mainly, people like free movement and the possibility to change their environment during the year. Someone wants to spend retirement days in more pleasant scenery, out of hectic urban life. Someone chooses to work remotely and raise a family on the seaside or countryside.

A residence permit is a document that allows you to stay in the country for a period of time, depending on your circumstances. A resident permit often allows you to enter the country at any time, buy real estate, obtain health insurance, and enroll your children in a school.

The residence could be temporary or permanent.

In some EU countries, apart from marriage, work, study, or use of property,  a residence permit is available through residence by investment programs – Golden Visa.

Also, some countries offer residence preferably for retired applicants, with no need to invest.

For example, to obtain Golden Visa in Italy you have to invest in a company or make a donation

  • Invest in a Government Bond issued by the Italian Republic.

  • Make a donation in the fields of culture, education, immigration management, scientific research, and preservation of cultural and natural heritage.
