STEP 1: Working with one of our expert consultants, your application is compiled and submitted on the basis of one of the above investment options as selected by you. No investment funding is committed at this stage.
STEP 2: Your application and supporting documentation is considered by the governmental Evaluation Committee. No investment funding is committed at this stage, however you’ll be required to pay a non-refundable government application fee of €1,500. Applications are only accepted during government specified application intake windows, taking place around 5 times per year.
STEP 3: If successful, you will receive an in-principle approval of your residency application by the Immigration Ireland Evaluation Committee. This committee is mandated to submit approval recommendations to the Ministry for Justice and Equality, who are ultimately empowered to approve your application.
STEP 4: If your application is successful, the required investment must be made in accordance with your preference, after which proof has to be submitted showing that your investment has been made in full.
STEP 5: After formal proof of your investment has been submitted, you will be required to submit proof of comprehensive private medical insurance for yourself and your dependent family members.
STEP 6: After your application has been processed, Irish residency status is issued (Full Stamp 4 Visa status) for a period of 2 years. As long as you retain your good character and international standing, maintain your residency investment, and have not become a burden onto the Irish state, your visa can be renewed for an additional 3 year period.
Beyond this point, it can be indefinitely renewed at 5 year intervals, even after your investment funds have been returned in full, provided that you remain financially stable and you are still able to meet the good character requirement.
