    Investment Options

    In 2023, the government allowed for installment payments over the course of a year. However, citizenship is granted to the investor once the full amount is deposited in the account

    Option 1 / Non-refundable contribution to the state treasury amounting to $250,000

    A non-refundable donation to the budget of $250,000 is the simplest way to obtain Egyptian citizenship. Applications will be processed within 6 to 9 months by a special unit under the Cabinet of Ministers. To apply for citizenship, a fee of $10,000 must be paid.

    Option 2 / A fixed-term deposit in a state bank starting from $500,000

    The deposit is opened for a term of at least 3 years. The money needs to be deposited in dollars, but it will be returned in Egyptian pounds. Installment options over a year are also available

    Option 3 / Investments in an existing or new business starting from $350,000, plus a non-refundable charitable donation of $100,000

    Charitable donation in society $100,000 in state execution.

    The business must operate for a minimum of 5 years; otherwise, citizenship will be revoked. It can be retained by an additional charitable donation of $250,000

    Option 4 / Purchase of state-owned real estate starting from $300,000

    You can choose one or several properties. Residential or commercial properties are available, either ready-made or under construction, from the list provided by the Cabinet of Ministers. Installment options over a year are applicable. Properties cannot be sold within 5 years

    Due Diligence

    The evaluation process of an investor’s application under this program consists of two stages. During the first three months, the investor’s identity is verified against Egypt’s security databases.

    If the reliability check is successful, the investor becomes eligible for citizenship. However, to proceed, the full investment must be transferred before the verification process begins.


    Obtaining Permanent Residency

    After the initial check, the investor is granted a six-month temporary residence permit (TRP). During this period, they must arrive in Egypt to fulfill the requirements of the chosen investment option.

    90 days

    Final Approval

    After fulfilling the investment-related requirement of the program, the Egyptian Citizenship Department conducts an additional reliability check on the applicant.

    Upon successful completion of the check, the department submits the applicant for approval to the Prime Minister of Egypt, whose endorsement is the basis for citizenship acquisition.


    Obtaining an Egyptian Passport

    After the application is approved, the investor receives a naturalization certificate and an Egyptian passport.
