We’ve been looking into these countries and how much money you would need to spend to benefit from residency and citizenship, so take a look at our findings to find out where you can invest in property and get residency for the lowest price.
Investment prices start from 180,000 Euros for a property in the Caribbean retreat of Saint Kitts & Nevis, rising to 678,225 Euros in Anguilla. If you are looking for the best value for money, the amount of property your investment buys is highest in Mauritius and Bulgaria.
We looked to a number of sources to find the countries where you can acquire citizenship or residency through property investment. These include:
We then looked at the different requirements for each of these countries for both residency and citizenship.
Please be aware that we have only looked at the property requirements for residency and citizenship, and there may be added expenses, tests, and requirements to obtain residency or citizenship in any of these countries.
Please also note, that residency and citizenship are not one and the same, and for some countries, it can be extremely difficult to obtain citizenship, but residency may be possible.
We also took a look at how much you can get for your money in each country by using Numbeo (https://www.numbeo.com) to look at the price per square meter to buy an apartment in the city centre and to buy an apartment outside the city centre.
We then took an average of both of these prices to give us a price per square meter (data was unavailable for Anguilla).
We then compared this with the cost of property for residency to find out the size of the property you would be looking at for your money. The full data for each country can be found here.
