Your gateway to Europe


The Golden Visa programme in Portugal is quite simply one of the most attractive residency programmes in the world for 

investors, offering non-EU citizens, and their families, the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful quality of life, great weather and safety that Portugal has to offer, as well as the advantage of being part of the European Union with the freedom to travel within the Schengen Area without being obligated to reside permanently in Portugal.


The Golden Visa - what is it?


The Golden Visa programme is a fast track for foreign investors from non-EU countries to obtain a fully valid residency permit in Portugal. Aimed at attracting foreign investment to Portugal, the Golden Visa is a very straightforward and flexible programme, with simple and clear legal requirements and extremely reduced minimum stay requirements.


To qualify for the Golden Visa, applicants must satisfy the investment criteria which includes the purchase of property (or 

properties) under the following conditions (investment made after 8 October 2012):


- Acquisition of a property equaling or exceeding € 500,000.00


- Acquisition of a property equaling or exceeding € 350,000.00 when the construction dates back more than 30 years or is located in urban regeneration areas


Properties acquired can be freely rented and let for commercial, agricultural and 

tourism purposes.
