The Latvia Residence by Investment Program was launched on 1 July 2010 as an initiative to sustainably overcome the economic crisis of 2007– 2009. Foreign nationals may apply for a residence permit in Latvia through various options.

Latvia is situated within Europe’s Schengen Area, on the Baltic coast. Riga, its capital, was founded in 1201 and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Approximately half of Latvia’s territory is covered by forests, offering many nature trails and parks. Latvia offers excellent transport and cultural links with both Western Europe and Russia.

According to the qualification requirements, foreign nationals may apply for a residence permit in Latvia by committing funds into the equity capital of a Latvian company, making a subordinated loan (deposit) in one of the Latvian banks, or through the purchase of interest-free government bonds determined for special purpose.
