The Committee on Justice and Equality will focus on the Immigrant Investor Programme at its meeting on 11 July 2018 when it meets with representatives from the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS).

Committee Chairman Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD said: “The Immigrant Investor Programme is open to non-EEA nationals who commit to an approved investment in Ireland. The Immigrant Investor Programme requires a minimum investment of €1m, from the applicants own resources and not financed through a loan or other such facility, which must be committed for a minimum of three years. At our meeting we will discuss the operation of the programme, the criteria applied, and the types of investors and investments involved. The meeting will also address a range of other issues, including the unacceptable timeframe in processing asylum applications."

The meeting will take place at 9am in Committee Room 2, Leinster House.
