Welcome to IMIpedia, The Investment Migration Encyclopedia

We’ve just launched the world’s most comprehensive compendium of statistics on and tools for the investment migration market.

IMIpedia contains a wide selection of tools, databases, and textual content to make it easier to both learn about and find accurate information on the world’s citizenship by investment and residence by investment (golden visa) programs.

What is IMIpedia?

IMIpedia is the internet’s central repository for up-to-date statistics, tools, and official information related to the world’s residence and citizenship by investment programs.

On IMIpedia, you’ll find:

What are the Program Pages?

The Program Pages are a section of IMIpedia in which each major residence and citizenship by investment program (minor programs will get their own pages too, in due course) have a page of their own.

On a program’s page, you’ll find a general program overview fact sheet (generously provided by Stephane Tajick), an overview of the approved agents and developments (where applicable), links to the program’s official website, recent news about the program and, most importantly, the individual program’s statistics (where reliable data is available).

What is the purpose of IMIpedia?

IMIpedia will serve as a central information hub for anyone interested in learning about or getting accurate information on the world’s investment migration programs; industry professionals, researchers, policy makers, and so on.

While you may not necessarily find all the information you could possibly need on IMIpedia itself, you will certainly discover the links to an external source that does have what you’re looking for.

IMIpedia will grow

This is just the beginning of IMIpedia and, in time, it will grow to become a much larger, much more profound platform.

We will keep adding new tools and features to IMIpedia as our internal working capacity permits. We welcome contributions to the platform and suggestions for new features.

We hope you’ll find this inaugural version of IMIpedia useful, and look forward to your earnest feedback.
