Egypt Citizenship By Investment 2024

As of September of 2023, buying ANY property with a value of $300,000 or more can qualify you for Egyptian Citizenship By Investment.

Launched in 2020, Egypt’s Citizenship By Investment (CBI) program is one of the youngest in the world. Offering four invest options – and a reduced property investment option, as of March 2023 – the program has already proved to be popular amongst applicants from Russia, China and the Middle East.

The liberalization of Egypt’s Citizenship By Investment rules – which now allows you to buy ANY property worth $300,000+, anywhere in Egypt, to gain citizenship – has also seen the country “discovered” by Britons, Americans and Canadians seeking to secure a Plan B option outside their home countries.

And since the Egyptian government reduced the minimum real estate investment requirement from $500,000 to just $300,000, the Egyptian CBI program can now viably compete against the Turkish Citizenship By Investment Program.

(In Turkey, the minimum real estate investment requirement for 2024 is $400,000.)

An increasing number of affluent foreigners are therefore considering the Red Sea as a second home destination for work, play and relaxation.

And this makes sense:

When it comes to real estate, Egypt offers exceptional value for money – even for up-market properties located in its most exclusive resorts and suburbs.

Plus, thanks to the Egyptian Citizenship By Investment program, which offers application processing within 6-9 months, foreign nationals can now combine buying a property and obtaining second citizenship from a stable country in well under a year.

What is the price for an Egyptian passport by investment in 2024?2023-11-21T07:52:32+00:00

Technically, one cannot “buy” a passport in Egypt (or anywhere else, for that matter). You can, however, acquire an Egyptian citizenship by making a significant investment in Egypt. This, in turn, makes you eligible to apply for an Egyptian passport.

Going into 2024, the Egyptian Citizenship By Investment program offers the following investment options to qualify for citizenship (and a passport):

  1. GOVERNMENT DONATION: A non-refundable government donation of $250,000;
  2. REAL ESTATE: Acquiring ANY property in Egypt (including in Cairo and on the Red Sea) for $300,000, and hold it for at least five years;
  3. COMPANY INVESTMENT: Investing at least $350,000 in an Egyptian company (new OR established), and making a $100,000 government donation;
  4. BANK DEPOSIT: Deposit $500,000 into an Egyptian bank account for a minimum period of three years.

An additional $10,000 government processing fee applies to all of these options, and you’re looking at an additional $10,000 – $15,000 in professional service fees, depending on the make-up of your family.
