MINIMUM REQUIRED INVESTMENT AMOUNT
In nearly every citizenship by investment program, the foreign national is required to invest (or promise to invest) a minimum amount into the country’s economy. The required amount varies from as low as USD $200,000 (as established by Dominica’s program) or as much as EUR €5,500,000 (as required by one of the Cyprus’s program). Moreover, many countries also require that the investment be directed into one of the available government approved projects or industries. Two of the most popular industries for foreign investment are real estate development projects and hotel development projects. Of course, there are other countries that allow foreign investors to decide where they want to direct the investment.
