Following a one-year review by the Irish Justice Department, Ireland’s Immigrant Investor Program has been officially closed to new applications starting February 15, 2023.

Get Permanent Resident for Ireland By Investment


Although there is a Permanent Resident for Ireland By Investment that leads to Irish citizenship, there is no Ireland Golden Visa technically. With the Irish citizenship Investor Programme, an applicant and qualifying family members can live and work in Ireland indefinitely. For high-net-worth individuals and their families who wish to acquire permanent residency in Ireland, the Irish Residency Program is an ideal option.
