Why invest in Poland for EU residency?

FULL EU RESIDENCY: A Polish investment residency is the ultimate Plan B for South Africans concerned about wealth preservation or the deteriorating socio-economic situation in South Africa. While gaining permanent residency is a process, you can gain the freedom to live, study and travel within the EU visa free by investing in Poland.

POLITICAL STABILITY: Poland is a stable democracy that joined the European Union in 2004. The country has close ties with Germany, and has become one of Europe’s biggest economic success stories since it became a market economy in the early Nineties.

TRAVEL DESTINATION: Poland is a beautiful, culturally rich country that has increasingly become sought after as an international travel destination.

ECONOMIC GROWTH: The country has enjoyed 25 years of uninterrupted growth, driven by growing domestic demand, foreign investment and a stable banking system. Its per capita GDP has climbed from 49% of the EU25 average in 2004 to 69% in 2016.

CENTRAL LOCATION: The country’s location is particularly attractive from a regional trade point of view, given that it shares borders with Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Belarus, the Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. The flight time from Warsaw to Munich is 95 minutes, and 2 hours 5 minutes to Amsterdam and 2 hours 40 minutes to London.

LOW TAXATION: The standard corporate income tax rate in Poland is 19%, making it an ideal European business destination.

Time Zones: Poland is well situated for remote workers and business professionals alike from a time zone perspective, given that it shares the same time zone as South Africa.

Polish citizenship by investment?
Poland presently does not offer a packaged citizenship by investment or Poland Golden Visa program, meaning that the road to naturalisation requires residing in-country for more than 10 years, with obtaining permanent residency being a prior step.

Prospective clients frequently find this site using search phrases such as “Poland investor visa” and “Poland investment visas” as well.
