Hungarian Residency Bond Program is getting popular: number of residence permits issued increases constantly.
While only 75 residency bonds were bought in September, 430 bonds were sold by the end of 2013.
Based on the information provided by the competent Hungarian authority i.e. the Hungarian Debt Management Agency (“ÁKK Zrt.”) until the end of August 2014 the ÁKK Zrt. has purchased 1102 Residency Government Bonds. Hungarian authorities hope that the trend will continue in 2014 as well.
Thanks to the huge popularity of the Program, the Hungarian government intend to raise the amount of investment by EUR 50,000 from January 1st 2015.
Hungary is looking to attract new investors
In line with current trends, Hungary is looking to attract new investors from across the world by offering them various benefits and incentives.
This is why the Hungarian Parliament adopted a unique Residency Bond Program in late 2012. The program offers Hungarian permanent residency under preferential conditions for non-EU nationals willing to invest into government residency bonds.

Based on the feedback we have received, this investment option has stirred the interest of numerous investors and would attract many third-country nationals to Hungary, since the residence permit would allow its owner not only to enter Hungary, but also to travel to any country in the Schengen Area without a visa.
