Permanent residency in Hungary

Government investor program

For the entire family, no need for a long-term stay

Official representative

The Hungarian Government has decided to close the program. All previously granted permanent residence cards will be valid, as the status is given for life.

Note that you can no longer submit any applications to the consulate. New investors cannot participate in the program.

An alternative — Malta permanent residence by Investment Programme. It allows investors to obtain permanent residence in Malta without any obligations regarding their stay in the country.

About the program

In October 2013, Hungary presented the most profitable investment program in Europe, which allows you to obtain permanent residence for a lifetime in just 2-3 months without having to stay in the country.

The investor has to invest minimum in purchasing of government bonds for 5 years. As a result he gets the permanent residence in Hungary for the entire family (including elderly parents).

Terms — permanent residence in 30 days (2-3 months in a real life scenario)

The goal of the program is to invite investors to invest in the special development fund. The procedure for obtaining a permanent residence in Hungary is regulated by the law “on the Admission and Right of Residence of Third-Country Nationals in Hungary”. It is the easiest way to obtain permanent residence in Hungary.

Citizens of all countries can get permanent residence in Hungary. You do not have to speak Hungarian or know the history of the country; you are also not obliged to live in Hungary.

This is a scheme for those who want to travel to EU countries visa-free and always have a "safe harbor". It is also perfect for those who want to move to Europe with their families, and continue their work at home, living in two countries as a result. With EU permanent residence you can quickly change your tax residency status if necessary.
