The D7 Visa 

Retiring in Portugal with the D7 visa, otherwise known as the passive income visa or retiree visa, is an excellent fit for you.

The D7 visa is a way to obtain permanent residence in Portugal for pensioners, retired foreign citizens or for those living of a reasonable stable income such as pension, real estate, intellectual property, or financial investments.

At lower governmental fees, as compared to the Golden visa and with a quicker approval rate, it is an attractive immigration visa option for those who intend to live in Portugal.

The minimum stay requirement is that you must not be away for more than 6 consecutive months or 8 non-consecutive months in any period of validity. Longer absences will eventually be permitted for professional, cultural or personal reasons.
