Liechtenstein Residency & Citizenship options

Liechtenstein offers a Residency without gainful employment program for foreign nationals who are interested in obtaining Liechtenstein residency. The applicant must demonstrate that they have sufficient health insurance and that they can support themselves financially. Once the requirements have been met, the applicant will be issued a Liechtenstein residency permit which allows them to live but not work in Liechtenstein.

  • Name
    Residency without gainful employment
  • Description

    Liechtenstein offers a Residency without gainful employment for retirees and other individuals who are not employed. To qualify, individuals must have sufficient financial resources to support themselves without working, and they must have private health insurance.

  • Requirements

    Liechtenstein does not have social security or a public healthcare system, so all residents must make arrangements for their own health insurance. In addition, individuals must have a clean criminal record and must not pose a threat to public safety or order. There is no minimum, but we took a minimum of $5,000 * 12 months as a yearly base minimum pension / income amount, which is probably on the low end.
