Visa policy of Caputia
The Visa Policy of Caputia refers to the right for foreign nationals to enter Caputia and its territories.
Visitors to Caputia are eligible to apply for residency status before the end of a travel visa.
While the current process is not codified, internal practices after the Hammish Civil War led to the establishment of the current system. For eligibility, the visitor must be employed in Caputia and have established residency by purchasing a home, renting a home, or declaring a Caputian citizen as a visa sponsor. A visa sponsor cannot have a criminal record in Caputia, and cannot owe back taxes to the national or local governments. Proposals have been floated to integrate the National Credit System into the criteria for suitable visa sponsors.
Current treaties extend visa-free travel to Caputia to several countries such as Craitland and the Wechua Nation, among others. Sometimes these treaties will include informal understandings between Governments in which Caputian authorities grant residency statuses at much higher numbers. This practice is generally discouraged in order to foster a fairer residency establishment system.

Prime Minister's "Partnership for Prosperity" - corporate programme
As a key part of the programme of the Prime Minister, Royston Merrick, to fund reconstruction and social welfare programmes by leveraging strategic corporate interests, a trial programme began in the 9th month of 1661, whereby the Prime Minister's Office would directly bestow laissez-passers upon individuals for a set period of time for so long as they served a specific purpose in the Caputian national economic interest, overriding typical nationality based requirements.
