Benefits of the European Golden Visa

Real Estate Investment

Golden Visa real estate investment is perhaps the most popular way to obtain residency in Europe. This is because countries in the region are seen as prime destinations among real estate investors, with a booming real estate market, high rental yields, and booming tourism industry.

Employment

In the EU, 67.6% of the population between 15 and 64 years of age is employed, with data updated to 2020. There are currently many job opportunities for Filipinos graduates in Europe.

The number of working hours also influences the level of job satisfaction and the quality of life of individuals. The European average is 37 hours of work per week.

Education

Access to education is another of the fundamental vectors for a quality life. Of the 20 best universities in the world according to the QS Global World Ranking, seven are in Europe. By obtaining a Golden Visa in one of the European countries, your children will be able to study in Europe.

Health

One of the benefits of the Golden Visa for foreigners residing in Europe is the availability of a very accessible healthcare system. Quality of life is also reflected in the average life expectancy in Europe, which averages 81.3 years.

Safety

Safety is another important criterion for a happy life. Cases of crime, violence and vandalism create distrust in society and generate fear. Europe is home to some of the safest countries in the world. Living in Europe you can enjoy the peace of mind of strolling down the street, going out with your children to the park, dining out in a restaurant in the evening.

Retirement

The Golden Visa is perfect for those who want to retire in a country that has a pleasant climate most of the year, a relaxed and healthy lifestyle, has a good public health system and where the safety of its citizens is guaranteed.
