THE GOLDEN VISA, BENEFITS AND ADVANTAGES

What's Golden Visa?

The "Golden Visa" Programme was created by the Portuguese authorities in October 2012, and is a quick way for foreign investors from non-EU countries to obtain a permanent residence permit valid in Portugal, which also allows them to travel freely in most European countries (Schengen Area).

Under the "Golden Visa" programme, non-EU citizens only need to make one of the investments provided for by law to obtain a residence permit in Portugal.

In order to attract foreign investment to Portugal, Golden Visa is a very simple and flexible program, with simple and clear legal requirements.
