Can anyone explain the Ireland citizenship by investment programme? (2018)


I want to potentially invest in Ireland and be granted immigrant investors status to live there…

Would anyone be able to tell me more about the programme?


Who Is Eligible?
The programme is open to investors from countries outside the EU. They have to invest 1m euro to qualify.

Currently, investors can only apply for a “Single Entry D Reside Visa”. A single entry a visa only allows you to stay in Ireland for a certain length of time.

According to the Inis website, it’s for:

the purpose of study or work or joining a family member who is already living here.

What You Need To Apply?

• Valid Passport/Identity Card

• Valid GNIB Card

The Irish government does not allow investors to transfer to different projects after their initial project has been confirmed.
