Hungary Citizenship by Investment

Residency in Hungary through investment can lead to citizenship


There is no direct route to citizenship by investment in Hungary. However Hungary offers a residency bond programme which grants permanent residency to applicants investing €300,000.  After a period of residency of 7 years the investor and their family can apply for Hungarian citizenship.


The residency bond programme is a fast track investment option granting PR for 5 years through investment in Hungarian government bonds. The residency is granted for 5 years and can be renewed after this period. Those applicants and their families who reside in Hungary and learn the language can then apply for citizenship after a period of 7 years. Hungary is a member of the European Union and the Schengen visa zone. Holders of the residency card are able to travel visa free throughout the Schengen area. Eventual citizens of Hungary are also citizens of the EU with the ability to live freely anywhere within the European Union.
