О компании — Иммигрант Инвест

On the market since 2006

We know the industry inside out: the details of the Due Diligence process for each citizenship and residence permit by investment program, when an affidavit is needed and the best way to resolve our clients’ problems.

Licensed agent

We work exclusively with government-licensed citizenship and residence permit by investment programs in the European Union and the Caribbean.

Offices in 6 countries

We know the nuances of the laws in each relevant foreign jurisdiction: lawyers trained in international law, local experienced lawyers and notaries draw up the documents for our clients and know how to get around all the pitfalls that could arise.

99% success rate

We conduct a preliminary Due Diligence check for each of our clients in order to practically eliminate the risk of failure. If we find points in their background that could result in their application being rejected, we offer a suitable alternative solution or decline to proceed with the application, after explaining the situation to the client concerned.

Elena Ruda

Lawyer, Chief Development Officer of Immigrant Invest

We help our clients forget about visa restrictions and create an alternative country of residence where they have the right but not the obligation to live.

Our clients and their families are wealthy people, including businessmen, entrepreneurs, investors, managers and celebrities. Our services are also used by other consulting and legal firms, representing the interests of their clients.

We promote an international lifestyle for our clients

We develop individual solutions to remove visa restrictions for our clients, create a safe haven for them, legally reduce their taxes in foreign jurisdictions and also support them throughout the immigration process.

We specialize in arranging second citizenships and residence permits by investment for our clients. We form long-term relationships with our clients and many of them return to us, sometimes even years later, for additional services: to replace a passport or extend a residence permit, as well as for other services.

5,000 families

have obtained second citizenships with us

How we work


We define goals for you

Our lawyers study and clarify your goals in order to find the best option for each client. For example, for those wanting to live in the EU or Schengen states, only the Maltese citizenship program is suitable, whereas for those wishing to travel freely in the EU, we recommend a Portuguese, Greek or Maltese residence permit or permanent residence in Malta, as well as other options.


We find the best solution

Depending on our clients’ goals, we select an investment program in the European Union or the Caribbean. We often find that people contact us with the intention of obtaining a second passport in a particular country, but after discussing and analyzing their situation with our lawyers, end up choosing to apply for citizenship in a different country, which is better suited to their requirements.


We closely follow the entire process

After the initial consultation, we support and assist our clients throughout the citizenship or residency process rather just at the stage of filing and registering the application. Even after the second passport or residence permit has been issued, we remain in touch with our clients until their initial investment is returned to them. We also assist our clients find a property, obtain a tax number and resolve other issues if they decide to move and live in the country of their new residence.


We help maintain second passports or residence permits

For example, after getting a Maltese residence permit, we make sure that our clients remain in compliance with the requirements of the law for the following 5 years. We help our clients renew their second passport, replace a lost passport, or extend their residence permit.

Why our clients choose us

We reduce the risk of an application being rejected to 1%

Our internal compliance department ? Certified financial risk specialists conducts a comprehensive preliminary Due Diligence check on each applicant before they sign an agreement with us and before we start collecting the documents required for them to participate in the program.

We create and execute a clear plan

We create a plan of action step-by-step for each client: this includes a description of the required package of documents and the actions required after obtaining a passport or residence permit. There are no surprises or hidden fees.


Our clients’ interests and peace of mind are our top priority. The non-disclosure clause regarding their personal data and investment sources in their agreement with us underlines the importance we attach to confidentiality in our relationship with our clients.

Reliability and dependability

We have been checked and accredited by the relevant government departments in the European Union and the Caribbean. This is confirmed by our licenses. Citizenship and residence by investment can only be obtained through a licensed agent. This is a legal requirement in the countries concerned.

Due Diligence is a key stage of every citizenship or permanent residence by investment program. Immigrant Invest is the only company in the industry that has its own compliance division and conducts its own Due Diligence.

Our activity as a government-recognized agent of citizenship and permanent residence by investment programs fully complies with the requirements of the European Union’s 6th Anti-Money Laundering Directive on combating the legalization of criminally obtained proceeds.

We conduct a detailed Due Diligence check on each of our clients before we submit their application to the relevant government department. This reduces the risk of their application being rejected to 1%.


Our team consists of 40 people, who are united by one aim: to find the best possible solution for the client, based on their situation and goals.

Our lawyers are members of the IMC, the worldwide association for immigration and citizenship by investment. We also employ certified AML officers.
