The government has launched a new immigration scheme that will provide visas for investors from outside the EU.

The move is aimed at people who, “in return for permission to reside in the State, are prepared to invest here for the purpose of saving or creating jobs”, said the Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter.

The new initiatives will be known as the Immigrant Investor Programme (IIP) and the Start-up Entrepreneur Programme (SEP).
