The Guest Investor Program of Hungary extends an exclusive opportunity to third-country citizens whose presence is of paramount economic interest to the nation. As part of the program’s eligibility criteria, individuals can obtain a Hungarian guest investor residence permit by fulfilling various requirements, including investments in real estate funds.
