Hungary government to relaunch ‘golden visa’ programme
Hungary’s government has proposed a new “golden visa” program, allowing foreign investors to obtain a residence permit in Hungary. Under the program, investors affiliated with projects deemed “strategically important” by the government can apply for a “guest-investor visa”, which would grant them a 10-year residence permit. The previous “golden visa scheme” was scrapped in 2017 after a Syrian man under US sanctions received residency status. The new program would require investors to buy Hungarian real estate or make a donation to public interest asset management foundations. Hungary has attracted investment from Asian battery makers in recent years.
