In July 2015 the Portuguese government introduced a new investment solution that open the doors for more foreign investors.
Portugal’s residency permit can now be acquired with an investment of just €280,000 in properties that are more than 30 years old, or located in urban rehabilitation areas. This allows the regeneration of city centers and the improvement of the real estate and tourism sector.
The main beneﬁts of the program are: a low property investment level, fast processing and a minimal requirement for residency. After 5 years, investors and their family members become eligible for permanent residency in Portugal and qualify for EU citizenship one year later.
Portugal Golden Visa is one of the fastest and most transparent investor visa program in Europe.
