Hungary has an attractive ‘fast track’ investor program, where upon buying EUR 300,000 worth of Government bonds, foreign investors are granted a permanent resident permit. There is no interest on the invested amount, but the permanent residency opens the gate to Europe before you. The investment sum is fully returned at the end of the 5-year investment period, so this venture in fact costs you only the EUR 60,000 government processing fee (which you have to pay above the 300k). Eventually, the permanent permit will enable you to apply for a Hungarian (EU) passport after 8 years.
The investment is fully redeemable after 5 yrs, while the investor can still get to keep the PR.
