No. The Portugal Golden Visa has not ended.
However, it suffered significant changes on the 6th of October 2023, when the Housing Bill (Pacote Mais Habitação) was enshrined into law. Essentially, the Housing Bill brought a series of changes, especially regarding the Real Estate option.
Under the new law, the Portuguese Golden Visa no longer provides Residency status through Real Estate investments.
The changes do not impact the renewal of previously granted Residency Permits.
The Portugal Golden Visa remains available through other options, including subscriptions to investment funds, donations to scientific programmes, artistic productions, and the recovery or maintenance of national cultural physical heritage, among others.
There are alternative investment-driven solutions to obtain Residency in Portugal. Contact Portugal Homes today to find out more information!
