- at the time of the application, make a secured bank deposit of €75,000, to be increased to €150,000 within two years of obtaining the residency (replaceable with purchase of property with a lien in favour of the State). Such bank deposit may be replaced by bank or insurance guarantee issued by a San Marino supervised entity.

Residency may be extended to the spouse/cohabiting partner and to dependent or disabled children under the age of 25.

The maximum annual number of residence permits that can be granted is 50.
