Hungary Golden Visa Programme

Hungary Golden Visa Programme


The Hungary residency bond programme has now closed for applications (March 2017).

Situated in the heart of Europe, Hungary is a jurisdiction of choice for investors and businesses seeking to establish operations in central Europe. Along with its high-quality infrastructure and highly skilled labor force, the central location also serves as an attraction for FDI. Hungary is a member of the European Union, the Schengen Zone and NATO. The Hungary Golden Visa gives access to Europe’s Schengen area to both the investor as well as his/her family. Besides being the fastest route to EU permanent residency, the Hungary Golden Visa paves the way towards citizenship.
