Introduced in 2012, the Ireland Immigrant Investor Program is a pathway created for wealthy investors and entrepreneurs (outside the European Union) who are willing to relocate to Ireland. With this program, the eligible entrepreneurs may attain residency in Ireland to make an approved investment in the country.
The program does not offer permanent residency; however, upon meeting the requirements, one may renew the residency permit after a few years for an indefinite period. Initially, permission is granted for two years, which can be renewed for three years.
The Ireland Investor Immigrant Program does not open the doors for Irish Citizenship; however, long term residency in the country may give you an edge over your citizenship application.
To be eligible for an Irish Investment Visa, an investor must:
Prospective investors may choose to invest in one of the following pathways to move to Ireland with their family:
1# Enterprise Investment- €1,000,000
2# Investment Fund- €1,000,000
3# Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) – €2,000,000
4# Endowment- €500,000
Investors under the endowment option may choose to invest at least €500,000 in a public project related to arts, sports, health, culture, or education.
It's a donation option, therefore, considered as a non-refundable payment. Investors are not entitled to receive any financial returns in this option.

Step 7: Demonstrate proof of your private medical insurance.
Step 8: Provide an Affidavit of Good Character from the police department.
