“You’re an expatriate. You’ve lost touch with the soil.

You get precious.

Fake European standards have ruined you.

You drink yourself to death.

You become obsessed with sex.

You spend all your time talking, not working.

You are an expatriate, see?

You hang around cafes.”

Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

So, many inquiries about European real estate and citizenship…! The best thing is to simply google “Golden Visa” …. There are many countries offering “Buy real estate for citizenship”. For Spain some of the best requirement summaries is found here: http://spain-property.com/files/pages/spain-residence-permit.asp

Golden Visa in Spain and in Portugal is now €500,000.

An investment of €500,000 in real estate will gain family residency. The Spanish investor visa can be renewed every two years. After five years it is possible to gain permanent residency and after ten years citizenship. It is not necessary to live in Spain in order to retain and renew the residency visa permit.
