Is there any difference if I receive the residence permit based on investment vs real estate?

F.A.Q. answer:
No, there is absolutely no difference in the residence permit you receive. You may choose the option that suits you best. In any case the term of validity of your residence permit will be up to 5 years, with the opportunity to extend. Check out the table below for more details.
