The Ireland Investment Visa (Golden Visa) was introduced in 2012. It was then enhanced in 2013 and now officially offers the opportunity for applicants from outside the European Union to gain Irish residency through an investment of €1million (minimum) in an approved investment fund.
The Ireland golden visa programme was made available to the public in order to stimulate investment in Ireland and offer residency to dynamic business professionals who have a proven record of success. This investment is the ideal programme for high net worth families seeking residency in Europe. It will also be attractive for businessmen, entrepreneurs and those who are seeking a top level of education for their children at world class universities. Those looking to invest must show good character by having a clean criminal record and must demonstrate a minimum net worth of €2 million.
The fund is a low risk investment fund authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. It offers the opportunity for foreign investors to invest in Ireland in return for long term residency status.
The two key objectives of the fund are:
1. Ensure maximum protection of investor funds through a conservative, low risk loan investment policy
2. Issue innovative finance to a portfolio of Irish hotels which will each increase employment levels through the lifetime of the fund
This is an asset backed mutualised debt fund which offers a very secure option for investors seeking access to the Irish Investor Visa Programme.
Investors can gain a €50,000 reduction in the amount needed for investment if they have children who wish to attend university in Ireland. The benefits of a full education in Ireland are attractive. English speaking and offering some of the best universities in Europe, Ireland offers unique opportunities for students and for graduates.
