Portugal is a Member State of the European Union and belongs to the Euro Zone. The EU defends a free market and a free circulation of people and goods, in addition to the absence of customs barriers. Portugal is the 2nd best country in the world on migrant integration policies and is an open door to the various world markets, with a direct connection to the Portuguese-speaking markets.
The Portuguese government passed a law in October 2012 to launch the residency by investment program, also known as a golden visa program.
To be able to apply for this program, you should be at least 18 years of age, in good health, and without a criminal record. As this is a residency program, you are required to visit Portugal for 7 days per year in the first 5 years.
In addition, you are required to make a purchase of real estate, make a capital transfer, or create job openings in Portugal.
