Slovenia Residence by Investment

Slovenia is a small European nation that was part of Yugoslavia located east of Italy. It’s a European Union member and provides a very safe environment. Business investors can obtain temporary residence in Slovenia by investing 50,000 EUR into a company. This investment can be made into fixed assets such as real estate, cars and furniture. Up to 2 investors and their family can receive temporary residence in Slovenia with this path. After 5 years of temporary residence, foreigners can apply for permanent residence (PR) in Slovenia. Those holding PR can qualify for naturalization into Slovenian citizenship after 2 years. Citizenship by investment is also possible for significant investors, but no program of the sort exists. Applicants need to petition the government and demonstrate that they have provided exceptional contribution to Slovenia. The Slovenia passport is one of the best in the world, with visa-free travel to the U.S. and freedom of movement in the European Union.
