Our specializedresidence and citizenship experts are devoted to providing comprehensive advice and cross-border tax support to private clients and high net worth individuals. We are able to offer all-inclusive solutions of the highest standards about all personal and corporate needs.

 

The table below covers all the countries as well as all the legal programs where EU Golden visa can be obtained in a reasonably short period of time (from 2 months to 8 months) without actual physical residency in the country, or with a minimum physical residency in the country, simply by investment or contribution (donation).
