- The second step is preparing required documents. While some documents are valid for all types of investments, some documents are required for only certain investments. Certificate of conformity, bank receipts and applicant’s personal documents are required for all investments, but land registry documents are only compulsory for property investments. The most common reason of why an application is rejected, is not preparing the documents properly. Preparing required documents is complex and needs a great deal of experience.
