Portugal Golden Residence Permit Program
The Portugal Golden Residency program for immigrant investors was launched by the Portuguese government in 2012. This program aims to attract high net worth individuals and their capital to Portugal for investment. This allows the Portuguese economy to grow and develop while the investor also benefits by gaining permanent residency in the EU, as well as the opportunity to obtain Portuguese citizenship.
Portugal Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does the Golden Residency program grant you permanent residency right away?
No, the Golden Residency Program is a temporary residency visa program where the visa is valid for one year only. However, you are entitled to renew it after two years. After five years, temporary residence holders may request a permanent residency permit.
2. Does Portugal recognize dual citizenship?
Yes, therefore you and your family can keep your original citizenship.
3. If I invest by purchasing a real estate property, when can I resell my property?
One of the requirements of this program is to hold the investment for a minimum period of 5 years, including real estate investments. Therefore, you will be able to resell your property after 5 years.
4. Can I include my family members in the Golden Visa application?
Yes, the applicant’s family members can apply for the “family reunion” option under the Golden Visa program in order to obtain residence permits. Family members included in this feature are the investor’s spouse, children and dependent family members. After five years, family members will be authorized permanent residency. After one year of permanent residency, family members are eligible to obtain Portuguese citizenship.
