About European Resident
European Resident is an investment immigration consultancy based in
Cape Town, South Africa. We work with private clients, providing advice in
investor immigration solutions and relocation to the EU. European
Resident acts as trusted advisors to non-EU investors and their families, as
well as to lawyers, real estate agencies and other firms in South Africa and
internationally. Through our robust network of partners, European
Resident ensures a truly personalised service, conducted with absolute
discretion, speed and integrity.

Personalised approach
Many people are looking for a “plan B” at present, both to create further
opportunity and to secure their future. This can be achieved through
various avenues, depending on individual circumstances. We help our
clients identify the most suitable route for alternative citizenship or
residency, as well as provide assistance with your application process. We
also facilitate property investment for our South African clients who are
looking to diversify their portfolios and invest in offshore property markets.

Our Story
Julia Dugina lived, studied and worked in Malta since 2002. She started
working in the Investment Migration industry in 2014, the year the
citizenship by investment programme was introduced in Malta. This was a
natural transition from having a background in corporate and banking.

After assisting clients with their Malta-related queries, mainly from Russia
& CIS countries, but also several African regions, Julia founded European
Resident which now assists clients with relocation and property services in
different European countries.

Julia is now based in Cape Town, and focuses on assisting South African
clientele with both relocation to EU as well as support in process of
obtaining EU residence/citizenship for peace of mind of having a plan B.
