Overview of the Program

The Hungarian Residency by Investment program allows non-EU nationals to obtain residency in Hungary through substantial financial contributions. This initiative aims to boost foreign investments, stimulate economic growth, and enhance the country’s global business connections.

Investment Options to Choose From:

To qualify for the Hungarian Residency by Investment program, applicants must fulfil certain financial criteria. However, you have a choice!

Benefits of Hungarian Residency

Path to Citizenship: after eight years of continuous residency, investors and their families may be eligible to apply for Hungarian citizenship, subject to meeting additional requirements such as language proficiency and integration.
