What is the Program
Golden Visa?
The Golden Visa Program was founded in 2012. This program allows citizens from countries outside the EU and EEA to obtain a residence permit in Portugal in exchange for a five-year investment.
This program is unique in that the investor only needs to spend about seven days a year in the country to maintain resident status and the benefits associated with visa-free travel to other Schengen countries.
So far, around 6,500 people have taken advantage of this program and have already generated significant income for the Portuguese economy. The total investment in this program alone amounted to more than 4 billion euros. Since 2012, this program has been widely supported by Portuguese political parties, both conservative and socialist. This looks promising for potential investors.

Advantages of getting a permit to residence in Portugal by investment
  • Your family members will receive a residence permit at the same time as you
    You can apply at the immigration office at the same time for family members, and they will also receive a residence permit in Portugal.
  • Fast route from residence permit to citizenship
    The Portuguese passport is found in 3 groups in the passport strength classification, alongside the Swiss, American and Japanese. In Portugal, citizenship by naturalization can be applied for after 5 years of residence in the country.
  • Possibility of dual citizenship
    Portugal does not have any additional requirements for obtaining citizenship through naturalization. The possibility of multiple citizenship is a strong argument in favor of the Portuguese passport. Combine the benefits of each passport
  • No Portuguese proficiency test required
    To obtain a residence permit, it is not necessary to confirm the level of knowledge of the Portuguese language. Also, in the context of Italy, Spain and France, popular for immigration. Portugal is very different from the level of globalization and penetration of the English language. You will be understood almost everywhere.
  • Requirement to reside in the country -7 days per year
    There is no need to reside in the country permanently - just 7 days a year. This is a really significant advantage. You don't need to rush anywhere. An alternative airfield is always available and we are waiting for you. Just five years - and the European passport will become a reality
  • You can change the investment object
    The burden on the investment object is very conditional.
    For experienced active investors, you can get the most by changing investment objects. The main thing is to meet the investment value requirement
