Portugal Golden Visa Investment Immigration

In October 2018, Portugal introduced a new immigration program that allows individuals to obtain a golden residency status by investing €500,000 in a fund. Holders of the golden residency card can reside, work, conduct business, and study in Portugal. The program allows for the main applicant, their spouse, and their descendants to benefit from the privileges, including free public education, free public healthcare, and visa-free travel to 26 Schengen countries. The golden residency card is valid for two years and can be renewed as long as the applicant has accumulated at least 14 days of residency within each two-year period, has no criminal record, and maintains the investment fund. After holding the golden residency card for five years and achieving proficiency in Portuguese at level A2, individuals can apply for permanent residency or Portuguese citizenship. With a Portuguese passport, holders can enjoy visa-free travel to 186 countries worldwide, including the United States, Canada, Australia, and others.
