Investor Visa

If you are from the EEA European Economic Area or Swiss national you do not need permission to create a business in Ireland. Also, visa requirements regarding residence, travel etc. is not required.

A Non-EEA national can obtain immigration permission to Ireland via the Immigrant Investor Programme.
