Golden Visa

Europe’s most successful residency-by-investment programme: the Portuguese Golden Visa through property acquisition.

Why Choose the Golden Visa Programme?

  • Permanent free entry and movement through 26 European Schengan countries
  • The right to live, work and study in Portugal
  • After five years, one can apply for Portuguese citizenship with a limited stay and language requirement
  • Dependent children and dependent parents will also qualify for the same benefits as you
  • One only needs to spend seven days in Portugal for the first year and 14 days in the subsequent years (consecutively or non-consecutively)
  • The program is not blacklisted by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) - unlike many other Golden Visa programmes
  • The option to become a non-habitual resident of Portugal and pay little or no tax for 10 years
  • One can choose from a range of relatively affordable investment options
  • The security of a second residence in a safe and stable country

Starting in October 2012 the Portugal Golden Visa Programme has been overwhelming successful with over 10,000 qualifying investments made.

Recent Changes to the Programme

Recently the future of the Golden Visa has been a little less certain. The Portuguese Parliament voted on a proposal named: ‘Mais Habitação’.

Proposed changes to the programme are as follows:

  • Golden Visa through direct acquisition and ownership of any form of real estate will no longer be eligible.
  • Funds remain a possibility, however one cannot invest in real estate.

Two weeks after the Portuguese parliament largely approved the housing bill, President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa decided to veto it. The bill has now been sent back to parliament for further scrutiny and another vote. The veto doesn't mean the end of the bill; rather, it delays its enactment.

This grants investors eyeing the golden visa program via real estate investments an extra month to proceed under existing terms. This means there is a little more time to achieve a Golden Visa via real estate investment. If you think you've missed your opportunity to apply for Europe's most popular residency-through-investment programme, now is your chance.
