3. Business immigration to Europe

The concept of business immigration in the legislation of the countries of the world implies the investment of a foreigner in the created or bought an existing business. Many European countries grant foreigners permanent residence status in order to create a company that will pay taxes to the state and create jobs for local residents.

IMPORTANT!
