The Golden Visa scheme is particularly attractive to non-EU citizens, providing opportunities for investors to fast track to a fully valid residency permit in Portugal and consequently obtain free access to the vast majority of European countries (Schengen area).
Aimed at attracting foreign investments to Portugal, the Golden Visa is a very straightforward and flexible program, with simple and clear legal requirements. With extremely reduced minimum stay requirements, the Golden Visa is clearly one of the most attractive residency programs for investors in the world.
The Golden Visa scheme has been an unqualified success and proof of that success is demonstrated by the increasing number of investors seeking to take advantage of this scheme by coming to Portugal.
