      invest 15 million rubles into Russian business. The company must work for at least three years, pay taxes for at least 6 million rubles and employ at least 25 people;

      open an individual entrepreneur, investing 10 million and employing ten Russians;

Over the past 10 years, EU countries have attracted tens of billions of investments through the "golden visa" program, according to which anyone can obtain citizenship or a residence permit in exchange for investment in the economy. Now citizenship through such a program is sold by four countries, another 12 are selling residence permits.
