Portugal Homes offers you a handbook of all you need to know in order to qualify for the Golden Visa Portugal scheme. In addition to several tax advantages, the program offers a fast track for non-European applicants who spend a minimum amount in Portuguese real estate to obtain a residency permit in the country. At Portugal Homes, these are the three main routes you can take and be assisted with if you wish to acquire Portuguese citizenship: 

1. Buy a property for 500,000€ or more

This is a popular option amongst investors. You can buy a property or multiple properties with a minimum value of 500,000€. Learn more about how to rent out your property to get the best return of your investment here and how Portugal Homes’ After Sales team can take care of your property while you’re away

2. Make an investment of 350,000€

This route focuses on stimulating the redevelopment of old buildings, being a great alternative to heated property markets. Read more about the 350,000€ investment option here.

3. Invest in a low-density area starting from 280,000€

The reduction of capital required for this investment aims to encourage investors to purchase into lesser-known areas - but arguably more beautiful, serene and filled with gems, such as the North of Lisbon, near the Algarve, and the Alentejo.

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.

Everyone I met with and spoke with has been extremely knowledgeable and professional. Dealing with native English speakers who understand things from my perspective was very reassuring.
