The Ireland Immigrant Investor Programme (IIP) was established in 2012, which facilitates investors and business professionals from outside of the EU who wish to avail of opportunities of investing and locating business interests in Ireland. The Immigrant Investor Visa Programme (IIP) gives Irish residency to non-EEA nationals and their families in Ireland in exchange for making an approved investment in the Irish economy.

The IIP requires a minimum investment of €1 million from the applicants’ own resources and not financed through a loan or other such facility, which must be committed for a minimum of three years. In order for an investor to be considered for the programme, the applicant must choose one of the current qualifying investments namely Enterprise Investment, Investment Fund, Real Estate Investment Trust or Endowment.
