What is the Portuguese Golden Visa?
The Portuguese Golden Visa program was launched by the Government to grant resident status to all real estate investors and respective families wishing to invest in Portugal. This is done through eligible investments and available to any citizen outside of the EU.
Once the Golden Visa residency permit is granted, you will have the right to:
Reside in Portugal during the whole duration of your visa;
Work, Live and study within Portugal
Travel freely, without visa, through the 26 Schengen countries of the European Union;
You may also obtain Portuguese citizenship after a period of 5 (five) years, with the same right of anyone in Portugal and the European Union;
Right to family reunion in Portugal and the European Union.
Holders of a Portuguese Golden Visa card are given a temporary residence permit in Portugal for two years, which is renewable for two-year periods. After five years holders of the Golden Visa can apply for a permanent residency or Portuguese citizenship (and passport), if all other legal requirements are met.
Portugal has issued more than 12 000 Golden Visas!
