Residency-by-Investment

Interested in Ireland?


Ireland is famed for its welcoming hospitality and having the youngest population in Europe with one third under 25 years of age and almost half the population under the age of 34.

But why do so many global citizens flock to Ireland? It could be its stunning natural beauty, the fantastic quality of life and the high standard of living. Or It could be Ireland’s incredible business benefits – low corporate tax rates and a GDP per capita of nearly USD 70,000 (higher than Singapore, Switzerland, the US and Germany).

Ireland’s residency-by-investment programme makes it easy to make the most of these benefits and live and work freely throughout the country.
