Portugal is a southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula bordering Spain. It is a safe and stable country with an excellent and affordable quality of life, good health care and education options, well connected airports and the best climate in continental Europe. Established in 2012, Portugal's golden residence permit program enables non EU citizens to obtain a special residence permit in exchange for a 5 year investment in Portugal. An investment into real estate is required to gain a residency permit for the main applicant. The golden visa can be renewed every 2 years providing the applicant spends 2 weeks in the country every 2 years.
