Seem to be getting different opinions about the GV on different forums and what qualifies.

 

 My case Going to live permanently in PT primary residence. Retired no Business only source of income is Pensions I will not be working in PT.  I will not employ anybody or set a business up.

I believe that under those circumstances the GV  would not apply to me

 Regardless of what I spent on Property.

You could come in on a residency visa.

See details under the tab "Residency (Over 1 year)" / Fixed residency on this link Type of visa and the links to other relevant information in the  panel on the right for full requirements.

Once you have that, you have a period of 4 months during which to request a residence permit from the immigration and borders service (details on the SEF website)

Just to clarify a little further - it's not that you couldn't apply for a Golden Visa via property purchase, just a question of why would you want to with this other avenue open to you which seems a better fit?

Hi Paulr,

the Golden Visa program is for anyone outside the EU and Switzerland. The essence of the program is to make an investment of your choice and in return get the opportunity for permanent residence or citizenship. Your source of income doesn't matter if you have the money for the investment.

Regards.
