Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for! A couple of days ago the Hungarian government came out with the long-awaited decree about the special government bonds to be issued for the purposes of the “residency for investment” program. The brief text below contains the specifications given by the ministry regarding the issue of the securities and the participation of the licensed agencies (referred to in the legalese text below as “enterprises”) responsible for bringing the bonds into circulation in the target countries (i.e. the countries of origin of the applicants).
This is an important step because, although the modification of our immigration law that made possible the extension of the “other” residency category to investors serving national interest was passed in mid-December, the actual bonds could not be issued until this decree came to light. With this, a major obstacle has been eliminated, and we are confident that we will be able to start processing applications in early April!
Helpers is in the fortunate position of working with most target countries through cooperation with the designated licensed bond-issuing agencies, so we will be able to assist you no matter where you come from, at competitive prices. Please direct any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org, and watch this space for regular updates!
