Portugal Golden Visa Program

The economic strength of the Eurozone and the social political stability of Europe has long made the continent the destination of choice for those seeking an opportune residency option. With an increasingly unstable geopolitical climate globally, the value of living in a European country has never been more apparent. It has also never been so difficult to obtain.

At Terranova Global, we offer you a simple residency option, free from any red tape or bureaucratic complexities.

The Program is a simplified way of granting residency to the individuals who positively contribute to the economic development of Portugal through transfer of capital or secure real estate investments. The Golden Visa program was launched by the Portuguese Authorities in October 2012 as a way for investors to obtain fully valid 5 year residency permit in Portugal. The permit allows its holders to work, live and travel visa free in Schengen countries.

After 5 years, the investor may then apply for a permanent residence permit. After 6 years, the individual will be eligible for Portuguese Citizenship and passport.

You will be required to stay in Portugal for only a minimal period:

7 days during the first year and 15 days during each subsequent period of two years.

In addition, you will be required to make a purchase of:

  • €500,000 worth of property in Portugal

Residency will also be extended to your family members, including your spouse, children, and dependent family members including young people over the of 18 if they are still studying.

European residency for you and your family

Obtain Portuguese residency even if your primary residence is in another country. The residency will also be extended to your family members, including your spouse, children, and dependents, including young people over the age of 18 if they are still studying.

With a low minimum residency requirement, with your Portuguese residency you and your family will have:

  • The right to work in Portugal
  • Access to all Portuguese public services, including healthcare and education
  • Visa free travel to Schengen area countries
  • The option to live in, rent or lease your property
  • Possibility of co-ownership of real estate

In the 5th year of your Portuguese residence, you will receive your permanent residency permit. At this time, you will have the option to sell your property.

At the end of your 6th year in Portugal, you will become eligible for Portuguese and EU citizenship, conditional to a basic Portuguese language test. Minimum 150 words and A2 level Portuguese is necessary and sufficient condition to pass the test.
