IRELAND IMMIGRATION

The Irish Government created the Immigrant Investor Program (“IIP”) to allow Ireland raise capital from individuals outside the EU who would like an opportunity to gain residency status in Ireland in return for investment or philanthropic endowment in the country. One of the most globalized countries in the world, with thriving international trade links and a strong international community, Ireland goes out of its way to welcome expats. The Irish Immigrant Investor Program attracts talent and wealth from across the globe, to the benefit of investors and the nation alike.
