Golden Visa

The Golden Visa

The Golden Visa program, with its funds option, offers a dynamic and strategic pathway to residency in Portugal. As individuals seek flexibility and diversification in their investment portfolios, funds have emerged as an attractive choice, allowing investors to contribute to Portugal's economic growth while securing their own future in this welcoming European destination.

The continuous popularity of this option reaffirms Portugal's commitment to providing diverse and accessible opportunities for those choosing to make it their future new home.

Golden Visa - it continues to be one of the most interesting visas to apply

The Golden Visa in Portugal is Europe’s most successful residency-by-investment program. Contrary to rumours, the program is still active, allowing individuals to secure residency by investing in various qualifying options, including investment funds, business creation, or job creation.
  • You have permanent free entry and movement throughout the Schengen Area (26 European countries)
  • After five years, you can apply for Portuguese citizenship
  • Your dependent children and dependent parents will also qualify for the same benefits as you
  • You only need to spend seven days in the first year and 14 days every 2 years in the subsequent years in Portugal

To get the Golden Visa, you must meet certain criteria, such as:

  • Transfer of capital in an amount equal to or greater than 500,000 euros in investment funds or venture capital funds OR
  • Incorporate a company or increase the share capital of an already constituted one with 500,000 euros plus 5 jobs creation.

Advantages of investing in Funds:

  1. Diversification: By opting for funds, investors benefit from a diversified portfolio managed by experienced professionals. This strategy mitigates risks associated with individual investments, offering a more balanced and secure approach.
  2. Professional Management: Fund managers bring expertise to the table, ensuring that the investment portfolio is actively monitored and adjusted according to market trends. This professional oversight adds an extra layer of assurance for Golden Visa applicants.
  3. Accessibility: The funds option widens the accessibility spectrum for potential investors. Now that traditional real estate investments are no longer possible to obtain this visa, the funds allow individuals to participate in the Golden Visa program, with values that are similar to that of real estate investment.
