Portugal Golden Visa - A Clear Path to Portuguese Permanent Residency

Portugal Golden Visa

Portugal’s Golden Residence Permit Program (ARI) was established in 2012. It offers non-EU/EEA applicants and their families a special residence permit in exchange for a 5-year investment in Portugal. Applicants have two options – they can either invest €500,000 into real estate or €350,000 into real estate requiring renovation. This is one of the most attractive programs available because investors do not need to reside in Portugal. Applicants and their families only need to stay in the country for at least two weeks every two years. The visa also requires renewal every two years. To apply for citizenship, however, applicants will need to demonstrate tangible ties to Portugal and succeed in passing a basic language test.
