Portugal is one of Europe's most historically influential countries, with a rich past of global exploration and trade within a variety of industries. The Portugal Golden Visa is considered one of the world’s best Residency-by-Investment programmes. As a member of the EU, the Portugal Golden Visa Programme provides visa-free travel within the EU Schengen Area and provides a flexible path to Portuguese and European Union Citizenship or permanent residence after as little as five years. Those seeking expansive visa-free travel can see their Portugal residency visa granted within as little as 180 days, with minimal residency requirements to consider.
The first of our Portugal Golden Visa requirements is either of the following options:Purchase real estate with a minimum value of €500,000. Only touristic investments are allowed in Lisbon, Porto and the Algarve. This can be reduced to €400,000 in low population density areas.Purchase €350,000 in real estate more than 30 years old or located in urban regeneration areas. This can be reduced to €280,000 in low population density areas.

The Portugal Golden Visa programme is a five-year residency option for those seeking visa-free travel to all countries within the EU Schengen Area. The Portuguese residency allows applicants to live, work and study within Portugal and provides a flexible path to citizenship or permanent residence after five-years. The Portugal Golden Visa requirements are relatively minimal with regards to physical presence, with just seven days during the first year of residence and 14 days during the following two years. This is beneficial to those seeking the residency primarily for business purposes, as it requires little time away from normal working conditions. With payment of additional required fees, spouses and dependents can also enjoy the same benefits of the Portuguese residency as the main applicant, meaning access to high-quality Portuguese schools and universities.
