Golden visa refers to a person's resident status in a country where he/she is not a citizen. The person is allowed to reside indefinitely within a country of which he or she is not a citizen. A person with such status is also known as a permanent resident. In general, the golden visa offers the right to live and travel anywhere among 26 countries of Union's member states (signatories to the Schengen agreement that allows unrestricted travel). Such incentives are made to attract foreign investment and this growing popularity of the visa-for- investment exchange around the EU as the permits become accessible to a far larger number of less wealthy foreign investors, who could buy a second home abroad.
