INVESTOR VISA- A ROUTE TO NATIONALITY
Investment immigration route is currently one of the few routes still available which could lead to get Permanent Residence (PR) and Nationality of the destination country. Some of the most famous countries offering Investment option are United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. All of the these counties offer visa in return of a commitment of an investment in their country.
As a general rule, two different programs are run by these countries ranging from Entrepreneur to Investor immigration categories respectively where former requires less investment as compared to later where huge investment is required.

HOW MUCH I HAVE TO INVEST?
Investment amounts are subject to change and vary from immigration category to others and country to country. Such as as investor in United Kingdom need to invest at least £2,000,000 in Investor Visa. In contrary to above, an investor in Australia need a minimum investment of 1.5 million Australian Dollars.
AFTER HOW MANY YEARS OF RESIDENCE CAN I GET NATIONALITY OR PERMANENT RESIDENCE?
The different immigration categories in investment have different residency requirement. Hence, there is no simple answer to this question. Lets take UK Investor Visa as an example which allows to apply for Permanent Residence (also knows as Indefinite Leave to Remain) in UK after just 2 years if investment is more than £10 Millions. In contrast to £10 Millions investment, if someone invest £5 Millions then PR can be applied after 3 years.
