The Golden Visa, Portugal Property

Picture: The Golden Visa

A new scheme introduced by the Portuguese government to facilitate non European nationals to move, live and work in the country by way of a Golden Visa. The qualifying criteria for obtaining this visa are rather straight forward whereby potential applicant must meet one of the following:

  • Transfer of capital to Portugal of over €1,000,000
  • Create new employment for a minimum of 10 people in Portugal
  • Purchase of real estate to the value of at least €500,000
  • Invest in various scientific, artistic, heritage sites to the value of at least €350,000

For real estate investments there are a number of further permutations to be considered:

  • For partners purchasing real estate together, both (or all if more than 2) must invest the minimum €500,000 to qualify for the Visa
  • Bank financing can be obtained, so long as the minimum investment level is met. i.e. €500,000+

The family members of the Visa holder are also granted the same privileges through way of a family reunion application.
