the whole process: from the very initial application to submission to the
Department of Justice and in preparation of the applications. Certain
changes had been recently introduced to immigration legislation. There are a
number of immigration programmes available
at present which makes Ireland an attractive jurisdiction in terms of
immigration. These programms include:

e) €500,000 invested in an approved fund. The funds will have to be regulated for the purpose of doing business in Ireland and the investments strategy of the fund must be compatible with the aims of the scheme.
