The best programs for the best passports

The Henley Passport Index shows you which passports are the strongest. However, not all of these countries have investment immigration programs. At the same time, some immigration programs are more cost-effective than others if you consider the investment amount, the number of accessible countries, and the simplicity of the procedure. Find below the best offers of our expert team.


Portugal is an EU member state with excellent schools, great healthcare, and favorable corporate environment. It offers residency to investors willing to invest EUR 250-500,000 in Portugal.


Malta is also a member of the EU and the Schengen agreement, a country of small islands in the Mediterranean Sea. It offers both residency and citizenship for investors. The lovely climate and the cosmopolitan environment make it an ideal destination for families who want to relocate to Europe.


You can get a Hungarian resident permit (thus a Schengen visa) with a simple investment in real estate, opening a company for property management. Low living costs and good infrastructure all make Hungary a great choice if you are planning to relocate to Europe.
