Germany does not have an investor category per se. Instead, foreign nationals wishing to invest and become a resident of Germany must comply with the immigration laws related to self-employment, by taking up an economic activity in a local municipality. This is facilitated through a regionalized investment. A foreign national is to a) purchase real estate and b) make an entrepreneurial investment into a regional development fund. The main applicant must be at least 18 years of age, have no criminal record and may include his/her spouse, and dependent children under the age of 18, in the application.
