About Portugal Residency by Investment

Located in the south of Europe in the  Iberian Peninsula, Portugal is the oldest nation-state on the Iberian Peninsula and one of the oldest in Europe. Its close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: salt cods and grilled sardines are national dishes and historic architectural buildings dating as far back as the 1500s are a reminder that Portugal was once a powerful maritime empire.

  • The capital of the country is Lisbon
  • The currency is Euro
  • The current population as of 2020 (World Bank): 10.3 million

The Portugal Golden Visa, launched in 2012, was heavily promoted by the Portuguese government and in return has attracted a high number of qualified foreign investors due to the program’s flexibility and attractive benefits such as the low stay requirements, and the possibility of acquiring citizenship by naturalization.

The residence by investment program is a five-year program in which the holder must stay for a minimum of seven days per year in Portugal for the first five years.
