What is Investment Migration?

Investment migration is a form of legal migration used by over 80 sovereign states globally.

Investment migration comprises various citizenship and residence by investment programmes which allow individuals to gain citizenship or residence rights in return for investments in their host countries.

Investment migration programmes are often structured around entrepreneurship potential — already a well-established practice in general immigration policy used in many OECD countries.

The development of a globalised economy in recent decades has led to the further expansion of investment migration.

When managed effectively, this creates benefits to the individual, the host country, and wider society, thus facilitating integration and peace in an increasingly interconnected world.
