Portugal’s Golden Visa Program

Portugal’s Golden Visa Program gained popularity among residency programs in the EU very early on and as a result has seen a high influx of applicants

Investors can participate in Portugal’s Golden Visa program by acquiring at least €500,000 of real estate in Portugal. However, other equally attractive options exist, including the acquisition of property in need of restoration, or investments in ventures and startups. Due to the popularity of the program, investors should expect to receive their residencies within roughly nine months of submitting their paperwork, as the influx of applications has caused bottlenecks.

Portugal’s Golden Visa provides investors and their immediate family members with many benefits including visa-free travel throughout the Schengen area, the ability to work in Portugal, access to the Portuguese healthcare system, and public and private schooling for their children at local rates.

In addition, investors may apply for permanent residence after five years of Golden Visa provided that minimum physical presence requirements are met. Following one year of permanent residence, investors may qualify for citizenship if they demonstrate active involvement in Portuguese society and have fulfilled minimum language and physical presence requirements.
