The Portuguese government passed a law in October 2012 to launch the residency by investment program, also known as a golden visa program.
To be able to apply for this program, you should be at least 18 years of age, in good health, and without a criminal record. As this is a residency program, you are required to visit Portugal for 7 days per year in the first 5 years. In addition, you are required to make a purchase of real estate, make a capital transfer, or create job openings in Portugal.
6th most powerful passport, giving visa-free or visa-on-arrival up to 188 countries.
The PR program provides for the grant of a five-year residence permit to non-EU investors who fulfill one of the following conditions:
Purchase property of your choice within Portugal worth at least €500,000
Acquire property worth at least €350,000 in areas designated by the government.
