The Golden Visa
Many investors from outside the EU have made Portugal their home thanks to a programme launched in 2012 by the Portuguese government called the Golden Visa. The Golden Visa, sometimes known as the Golden Residence Permit, was devised to attract money into the country by granting residency in exchange for a variety of approved investments.
How do you qualify for a Golden Visa?
The investors, along with their families, qualify for the Golden Visa if they comply with the following requirements:
Investing in Portuguese property to obtain a Golden Visa
Investing in Portuguese real estate is a popular choice among Golden Visa applicants. This is partly because property prices in Portugal are lower that in many other European countries – providing investors with a greater opportunity for capital growth. In addition, the minimum investment required is set at a very affordable level.
The Golden Visa offers a fast and simple way for non-EU citizens to enjoy the many benefits of living and working in Portugal – and the Algarve in particular. With its beautiful landscape, sandy beaches, first-class seaside restaurants and more sunny days than anywhere else in Europe, the Algarve is highly sought after by property buyers looking for luxurious homes in stunning locations.
