Irish Residency Program: Linking The UK and EU Post-Brexit

A few weeks ago, Brexit finally has sent the European Union and the United Kingdom in different directions. European and UK Citizens now must obtain residency permits or settlements one way or another. Except for the Irish. Ireland IIP has now become the only program that links the UK and EU post-Brexit, Irish citizens now can travel visa-free under CTA (Common Travel Agreement). Besides visa-free traveling, the CTA agreement provides the citizens of both countries with the right to live, work, study and gives access to health services and benefits both in the UK and EU.

Ireland EU status post-Brexit remains the same, Ireland is a member of the union and continues to get all EU membership benefits. As European Union citizens, the nationals of Ireland can live and work in any of the EU Member countries.

The investors interested in acquiring Irish IIP are able to choose four different investment options that will eventually lead to Irish Citizenship.


Managing Director of Mann’s Solutions Evgeny Pavlov commented:

“It is clear that post-Brexit, Ireland Residency program became more attractive to those who want to live, work and study both in the UK and European Union countries.”
