Global Residence

Residency By Investment is a process by which applicants can acquire Permanent Resident or Long-Term Resident status of a country by making a qualified investment. It is a visa status that allows the bearer of the PR card to legally reside in the host country without being a citizen of that country.

PR status can also lead to citizenship by naturalization provided the resident has lived in the country for a certain number of years.


  • Reside indefinitely within a country of which you are not a citizen.
  • Ability to live, work, travel or study within that country without restrictions.
  • Retain your foreign passport, and hold an international travel document from your country of residence.
  • May access more job opportunities.
  • May leave and re-enter your country of residence.
  • Children born to you while you are resident in that country are usually citizens by birth.
  • Improve your naturalization eligibility, allowing you to apply for a citizenship later on.
