The two main investment options which are currently available in Portugal are the Golden Visa and the Non-Habitual Residency. The Golden Visa offers non-EU citizens the opportunity to obtain a Portuguese passport and eventual citizenship, the Non-Habitual Residency offers residents in Portugal tax savings for the first ten years of their time here. Below, we have detailed the two different options. If you are interested in these schemes or have any questions in relation to them please get in touch, we are able to assist you with any queries that you have.
Launched in 2012, the Golden Visa programme has proven to be the most popular fast track scheme in Europe for non-EU citizens to gain Portuguese residency. Without the need to reside in Portugal, investors are attracted to the ease and flexibility with which they can obtain a residency permit which then gives them access to all the benefits it provides.
