Talent Migration


Foreign nationals who have a regular source of passive income or pension may obtain a temporary residence visa. There are no officially specific income level requirements. Usually, a monthly regular income or pension of US$1,000-1,500 would be enough for a single applicant. Additional amounts may be required for dependents (spouse, children, and parents). The temporary residence visa will allow you to live one year within the country and apply for a work permit.
