Golden Visa new legislation review on the pipeline.

The Portuguese Golden Visa programme is an exciting opportunity for foreign investors domiciled outside of the EU to obtain a residency permit in Portugal and as a result free access to much of the rest of Europe (Schengen area).

Designed to boost foreign investment in Portugal, this highly attractive residency programme can be activated, subject to legal requirements, through the investment in one of eight options.

Besides the access to the rest of Europe and the inclusion of family members, there is also the possibility to apply for permanent residency.

Programme launched by the Portuguese Authorities in 2007 has been significantly reviewed since. Following the approval of the 2020 budget, further and significant alterations are expected subject to governmental decision.
