Bezviz is a great opportunity for our Ukrainian entrepreneurs to expand their own business.
If we talk about Europe, then we can split them into two categories — simple to obtain a residence permit and with strict migration policy.
“Basically, just issued a residence permit in the Baltic States. To obtain a residence permit in Lithuania, enough to buy a stake in a local company or to create your own capital of 28 thousand euros. And to get residence permit in Latvia you need to invest in the capital of the company over 36 thousand euros. Estonia puts forward requirements on the size of investment in local business in the amount of 65.5 thousand euros,” — says economist Ivan Nikitchenko.
There are other options for registration of residence permit in Europe.
“Settle in Croatia are subject to the registration of the company with a share capital of 2.7 million euros, in Slovakia — from 5 thousand, in Hungary — 10 thousand, in Slovenia from 22.5 thousand in Bulgaria, it is sufficient to register an overseas company in the local chamber of Commerce, after which the foreign entrepreneur receives a visa “D”, and on its basis it is possible to issue a residence permit,” continues Nikitchenko.
Well, if you consider the prospects of registration of the residence permit in old Europe, here are the most loyal conditions offers Finland. There to obtain a residence permit it is sufficient that the authorized capital of the created company started from 2,5 thousand Euro.
There are also programs that allow you to obtain the status of permanent residence, if you buy a property or invest in government bonds of the country. “It is possible, for example, Malta, Portugal, Switzerland, Cyprus. But the costs for such programs will be more — 250 thousand euros,” — said Nikitchenko.
In this case, the lawyer Yaroslav Bulychev notes: if a citizen of Ukraine receives the status of resident of another country, i.e. a residence permit and permanent residence, it does not mean loss of citizenship of Ukraine. So do not be afraid to develop the company through business migration because from the point of view of Ukrainian legislation, all legal.
“And all because only after obtaining the status of permanent residence abroad, usually at least 5-10 years, a person may file a petition for citizenship. And only after acquiring citizenship of another country, such a person may lose the citizenship of Ukraine”, — said the lawyer.
