The applicant will first have to receive a residence permit by renting a property for at least €12,000 a year. After one or three years, depending on the planned investment size, applicants can then apply for citizenship with proof of a new rental agreement that is a minimum of €16,000 yearly. This house will need to be rented for at least 5 years and cannot be used to sublet during that time.
On top of the rental fees required, applicants will also be required to submit a €600,000 contribution to the National Development and Social Fund for a single investor application. If an application contains family members, the amount required increases by €50,000 per family member.
Finally, a donation of €10,000 to a local sport, cultural, scientific, or artistic non-governmental organization or society is required.
