Citizenship-by-investment is on the rise worldwide. Obtaining a second citizenship-through-investment has become a quick process, allowing you to obtain your second citizenship within 2-3 months without any requirement to reside in the country.
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.
In the North Atlantic Ocean, to the South and West of the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland (officially known as Ireland) comprises 26 of the 32 counties on the island of Ireland, with the other six making up Northern Ireland.
Ireland is popular for its high standard of living and quality of life. The OECD Better Life Index places Ireland 15th of all OECD countries, based on a broad range of factors including housing, income, security, community and education.
Ireland enjoys strong trade links and relations with its European neighbours including the United Kingdom, and with the US. Ireland is a member of the European Union (EU), the Council of Europe and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The country’s official languages are Irish and English and the local currency is the Euro.
