Portugal has become the preferred destination for international investors looking to relocate to Europe. Portugal is a beautiful country, with a wonderful climate, great food, and a very safe environment. The country is developing rapidly and offers various incentives and benefits to encourage foreign investment the fields of high tech, technology, tourism, and real-estate.



Portugal is known for it's welcoming attitude to foreigners, and offers several naturalisation paths for foreigners, one of these is the Golden Visa program, or “Residence by investment” program, which allows foreign nationals and their families to rapidly obtain a residency permit in the Euro zone. The residency status is received in approximately 90 days, and allows for free passage through European countries, subject to the Schengen Agreement.

Initiated 7 years ago, the visa by investment program is actively promoted by the Portuguese authorities and is by far the most popular among the different citizenship by investment and residence by investment programs that are currently offered throughout Europe.


The Portuguese golden visa program is especially

attractive for the following reasons


  • A low investment requirement of 280,000 Euro compared to 500,000 or even 1 million Euro required in other GV programs

  • Expandable to additional family members without additional investment requirements

  • The Applicant and their family can get a permanent residence permit after 5 years, and citizenship after 6 years

  • A low minimum stay requirement of 7 days during the first year and 14 days over the two years that follow.

  • No dual citizenship limitations

  • Portugal’s economy is stable and growing, and many high yield investment opportunities are available

  • A Euro-zone residency permit which allows the investor and their family to move freely within Europe

These are just some of the reasons that the Portuguese GV has attracted over 7,000 investors from all over the world
