A deposit to secure their share is also paid to the Government Escrow account. The client pays the Submission invoice of IVS Professional Fees.


Due Diligence results are ready and Citizenship approval is issued. At this point, the applicable Financial Contribution is payable to the Ministry of Finance and Planning.
