Golden Visa Program

Golden Visa is an immigration program where if you are a rich and wealthy person, then you can acquire a residence permit or a citizenship in a country by simply making a large donation, investment, or by simply purchasing a house in the said country.

The amount that you can invest will differ from country to country where the amount can range anything between $25,000 and $1 million.

Having a Golden Visa has its own benefits that you will be able to enjoy. Having this type of visa means that you or the member of your family can enjoy the benefits provided by the said country such as getting education, access to healthcare, etc.
