6) If your application satisfies all the criteria, the Minister of Interior presents the application to the Council of Ministers for final approval.

7) If the person does not have already a residence permit, an application is completed and submitted for this purpose. There are no further requirements than these of the investment programme.

8) Once the Council of Ministers approves the application, then we submit the approval to the Civil Registry and Migration Department and they issue, following payment of an additional €5.000 that constitutes the Naturalization Certificate issuing fee.
