On Tuesday 14 February, the Irish government announced the closure of the Immigrant Investor Programme (IIP). IIP applications via approved projects may be granted a grace period of three months to submit the finalised application. Any interest in IIP is the last chance and would have to apply on an urgent and immediate basis or the programme will no longer be available. Contact us now.

What is IIP?

The Immigrant Investor Programme

The Immigrant Investor Programme or IIP offers secure residency status in Ireland, through an approved investment. The IIP is open to non-European nationals who may apply for themselves, their spouse or civil partner, any children under the age of 18 and any dependent children between the ages of 18 and 24 (provided they are not married and in full time education).

The IIP process involves making an application to the Irish government; getting that application approved; making an investment; and receiving residency.

A key feature of the Irish programme is that the investment is only required to be made after your application has been approved. The process is very straight forward and the approval time currently takes between 4 and 6 months. The residency requirements, meaning the required time to spend in Ireland to maintain this immigration status, is only one day per calendar year.

Why Irish IIP?

The Irish Immigrant Investor Programme (IIP) is supported by the Irish government and managed by INIS (http://inis.gov.ie), a department within the Department of Justice. The IIP offers fast approval times, with the investment only required to be made after approval. In addition, Ireland has a well-developed education system and language advantages, very good standard of living, a rapidly developing economy and has become a new hot spot for relocation.
