Chinese Applicants Largest Contributor to Residence by Investment Programs over the last 10 Years
Chinese applicants are without a doubt the largest market for Residence and Citizenship by Investment (RCBI) programs. Chinese applicants account for about two-thirds of golden visa programs all over the world.
The Chinese mainland is considered as the largest investment migration market, based on factors such as “the number of HNWIs” and “Quality of Nationality”, and is further projected to be the dominant force within this industry.
From 2009 to 2018, there have been more than 57,000 Chinese applicants that have obtained their second residence permits from other countries through these residence investment programs worldwide, with the total investment value amounting to more than US$44 billion.
According to the data from Investment Migration Insider (IMI), the US EB-5 program and Canada QIIP program have led the pack with the highest demand for applications.
It is also worth noting that Cyprus and Malta residence programs are not been taken into account for this dataset, as no accurate statistics exist – with both programs being very popular among Chinese investors.
