The Portugal Citizenhip By Investment Program

The Portugal citizenship by investment program, also known as the Golden Visa, is one of the most popular and successful solutions for investors from all around the globe due to its flexibility, benefits, and investment options.

This investor visa program, launched in 2012 by the Portuguese Government, allows non-EU citizens, of at least 18 years of age and without a criminal record, to obtain a 5-year EU Residence Permit for the whole family, including spouse, children, and parents.

It requires a real estate or investment fund acquisition starting at EUR 280,000 and can be renewed every two years providing the investor proves their residence in the country for 14 days every two years. After 5 years, applicants may apply for the Portuguese citizenship and obtain a second passport and citizenship.
