Thank to this type of residence permit the applicant will have a so-called EU residency and will be able to visa-free travel to the Schengen countries.

The period of validity of the permit is a maximum of ten years, which may be extended by a maximum of ten years for the same purpose only. Family members who base their application on the same investment may also be granted a residence permit for 10 years.
