Individuals of talent and means need not limit their lives and business interests to one country. Residence by investment programs, also known as golden visa programs, provide high-net-worth individuals with the option to relocate and the right to live, work, study, and receive healthcare in their new countries of residence. Being able to change residence to a suitable country or have multiple residences is an increasingly important aspect of international planning for private clients.
