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.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Step 1: Talk to Adler & Partners immigration Advisors

The Golden Visa scheme allows investors to stay in Portugal (and to travel within the Schengen Area) for 5 years. After 5 years, investors can obtain permanent Portuguese residency. After 6 years, investors can apply for Portuguese citizenship. You cannot apply directly for the citizenship without getting the permanent residency first.

Step 2: Prepare Documents

A detailed checklist will be provided, and you will be guided through the documents collection stage. Experienced immigration advisors will prepare all the required documents along with the residency application and will conduct a final check of each document for compliance to ensure all requirements are met, including, proof of investment documentation.

Step 3: Complete the investment

The 3 options to obtain residency are the purchase of Real Estate, investment in a Portuguese business, or capital transfer to the Bank of Portugal. Adler & Partners will provide you with the best investment options available that meet your requirements.The investment can be made as an individual or through a legal entity meeting certain requirements.

Step 4: Book a biometrics appointment

We will book an appointment for you and your family to submit biometrics in Portugal.

Step 5: Submit Residency application

The complete application along with all supporting documents will be submitted to the SEF, the body that processes Golden Residence Permit applications along with documentary evidence of the real estate acquisition or of the investment.

Step 6: Receive Residence Permit

Once the application is reviewed you will be granted the residence permit, valid for 1 year, extendable for 2 years each time, provided you meet the 7 days per year requirement, with the right to settle in Portugal and travel throughout the Schengen Area. After the fifth year, you can apply for permanent residency followed by citizenship.
