Golden Visa: residence for investment

There are different ways to get a residence permit in another country: go to a local university, get a job there, create a family with a citizen or citizen of another country. They are suitable for those who plan to move abroad. However, many want to get a residence permit for other purposes: for example, to simplify communication with foreign banks or as insurance in case of an emergency move. Such people are suitable “golden visas” – they are issued when buying real estate or other assets for a certain amount. This is the easiest and fastest way to get a residence permit. Tranio talks about the most popular programs: under what conditions can you get a “golden visa” in another country?
