Hungary is a member state of the European Union and a member of the Schengen area. Its strong economy, exceptional education and health care system is on par with its northern neighbor, Austria. This makes Hungary the hidden gem of the Residence by Investment programs in Europe. Its proximity to Austria, Germany and Italy and to the eastern European states makes it an interesting hub for many businesses.
HOW TO OBTAIN VISA?
Setting up a business in Hungary is a step-by-step process and a great deal of paperwork must be completed and filed with the relevant authorities. When applying for a residence permit through investment, the team at Glam Immigration will guide you through the many steps of this process. With the assistance of our immigration lawyers, we strive to be your trusted immigration advisor.
The Hungarian residency law allows entrepreneurs and business investors to apply for a residence permit if they invest in the activity of a company in Hungary.
As the Hungarian law does not restrict the investor to invest in a business area that the authorities deem especially beneficial to the country it is much easier to apply for an investor visa in Hungary than in many other European countries. No language or university degree requirement.
THE BASICS OF THE PROCESS
After paying the retainer and signing our client agreement we will guide you through the process which includes drafting articles of association, naming your company, drafting an executive agreement, and registering the company. We will guide you through opening a bank account and paying in the full company’s share capital, we can also assist you in finding a tax advisor and/or an accountant. We will help with the visa application for the managing director.
