Golden Visa Program

Golden Residence Permit Program was introduced by Portugal in 2012. It enables foreign citizens to obtain a residence permit in Portugal in exchange for a 5-year investment.
Being one of the most attractive residency programs in the world, Golden Visa leads to a residence permit in Portugal through real estate investment of at least EUR 500,000 for a minimum period of 5 years. The required purchasing price is reduced to EUR 350,000, if the property is older than 30 years or located in Portuguese urban regeneration areas.
Apart from real estate, investor may obtain the Portuguese residency by investing into Portuguese small and medium businesses, scientific research or arts, culture and heritage. The investment can be made by a natural person or by a company. The rules of the scheme are straightforward and flexible with minimum stay requirements (7 days first year and 14 days following periods of 2 years) and possibility to gain a residency visa for whole the family, including dependent children and parents.

The processing time to obtain Golden Visa is currently around five months.
