Ireland Immigrant Investor Program

The Ireland Immigrant Investor Program offers the opportunity to gain immediate permanent residence status in Ireland. For investors that actually take up residence in Ireland, there is a clear path to citizenship in a country unlike any other.

Investment Criteria

The program was developed to enhance Ireland’s position as one of the world’s most globalized economies and destination for investors and business professionals. Beyond the beautiful scenery and unique culture, Ireland has a global reputation as a welcoming destination for international investors and business professionals.

We have reviewed each of the investment options, and while each has it’s benefits, we can assure you that the Irish Diaspora Loan Fund (IDLF) offers applicants an incredible investment opportunity.

Irish Diaspora Loan Fund (IDLF)

The IDLF is a Central Bank of Ireland approved loan fund which provides lower cost, asset-secured financing to the Irish 4 and 5-star hotel sector. Loans are provided to suitable Irish hotels on more favourable terms compared with traditional banking institutions, and are secured against the hotel property.

Citizenship Process

One of the many benefits of the Immigrant Investor Program is that the residency requirements are minimal. But for those who wish to physically reside in Ireland under the program, there is the opportunity to apply for citizenship.

The Irish Nationality and Citizenship act allows residents to apply for citizenship assuming they meet the following physical residency requirements:

Must have been physically resident in Ireland for the 12 month period prior to applying.

Must have been physically resident in Ireland for four of the preceding eight years.

These guidelines allow for an incredible opportunity for applicants. For investors that actually take up residence in Ireland, there is a clear path to citizenship from an EU member country, in just over 5 years.
