Immigration to Canada is no deep easy ... here are 3 European countries that will grant you permanent residence

Immigration to Canada is no deep easy ... here are 3 European countries that will grant you permanent residence

With the wars in the Middle East, especially the Arab countries, continuing, Canada no longer receives refugees who want to obtain residency as it did years ago, and it suffices with a few numbers every year.

According to the American magazine Forbes, other options for those interested in obtaining residency or citizenship from Europe are more available today than ever in history, but it depends how much time and money you are looking to spend to achieve this goal.

Here are the best investment options currently available for residency and citizenship in Europe:
In order to qualify for residency in Cyprus by investing in real estate, you must spend at least 300,000 euros on the property.
But the problem is that the property must be new and in a project approved by the government.

Most countries require that the real estate investment process be completed to qualify for residency directly in the name of the applicant, which makes real estate planning and avoids proving the will of the will more complex.

However, Cyprus permits ownership of real estate through an entity (company, partnership, etc.), with the primary applicant for residence (and spouse, if any) to be the beneficial owner.
Cyprus does not require that the applicant be present in the country except once every two years.

You can apply for citizenship after 7 years of residency.
Before applying for citizenship, you must reside in the country permanently throughout the year preceding the application.
After obtaining citizenship, you are expected to live in the country for an indefinite period.

This does not mean that you have to be in Cyprus 365 days a year for the remainder of your life; but if you get citizenship, you must intend to reside there.

In order to obtain residence in Greece, a minimum investment of 250 thousand euros is required, thus it is less than most other European residency programs.

Real estate prices are falling in many regions of Greece from their actual value, as the country has just started recovering from a local debt crisis that has been going on for nearly 10 years.

This means that the 250,000-euro purchase is a very important factor in Greece's golden visa programs.

In fact, you may have difficulty spending it. But there is no problem. Greece (like many countries that offer these programs) allows the consolidation of real estate purchases to reach a minimum of 250,000 euros.

The Greece program does not require staying in the country for a period of time, which means that you can invest in real estate in Greece, obtain a residence permit there, and then wander through the Schengen area without stepping into Greece again if you do not want to.

However, you will have to visit it once to complete the residency paperwork and obtain the permit.

However, if you want to get a Greek passport as well, you will need to plan to spend time in the country; nothing but to learn the language, which is a condition of naturalization.
You do not need to speak it fluently, you just have to be familiar with it, but even this means learning a new alphabet.
Also, note that military service in Greece is compulsory for men under the age of forty-five.

It may not be a cause for concern for you, but be careful if your plan for second citizenship includes your children.

The visa program to Spain is the most expensive in Europe, as it requires the purchase of a property of at least 500,000 euros.
In addition, you must renew your residence permit every two years, although, in other places, you will be lenient about the requirements to renew your residence permit and be every five years.

On the positive side, the Spain program comes without requirements to spend time in the country. Despite this, Spain imposes taxes on non-taxable residents on rental income for real estate in the country.

So if you buy a property that qualifies you for the golden visa program and you do not live in it and do not rent it either, you will still be subject to tax as if you were making revenue from the property's rent.

Spain allows citizenship after 10 years of residency. You will need to be proficient in Spanish to be eligible, and the country only allows dual nationalities if you are from Andorra, Portugal, or any of the former colonies of Spain, including the Philippines.
