Italy Golden Visa

Italy Investor Visa Program

Italy offers an investor visa residency program that grants applicants five-year temporary residency. Investors in may then apply for permanent residency after five years and full Italian citizenship after 10 years in the country. However, for those with Italian roots, the citizenship process can be done much faster, usually after only a few years.
