IRELAND

We are marketing the Enterprise Investment option through an Authorized agent.

Qualification:

The Immigrant Investor Programme (IIP) was introduced by the Irish Government in 2012 to encourage inward investment for the creation of business and employment opportunities in the State. To qualify, applicants must fulfill one of the investment options in addition to meeting the following criteria:

The principal applicant is aged 18 or over No criminal records worldwide A minimum net worth of €2 million.

Approved applicants are initially granted a residency period of 2 years. After which, a further period of 3 years can be granted on the condition that the investor is adhering to the conditions of the IIP. Once the investor has reached the 5-year residency period, they are eligible to apply for residency indefinitely in 5-year blocks.
