Portugal keeps adding to its accomplishments. Being the owner of one of the most powerful passports in the world, Portugal was elected as one of the best places for residency and to acquire a second passport by Forbes.
The application process is relatively painless, and as a Portuguese resident, you’re allowed to live in the country and travel anywhere in the Schengen Area. This includes Austria, France, Germany, and just about everywhere you want to be in the European Union.
When eligible for Portuguese residency, you can benefit from the many tax advantages if you apply through the NHR Programme. The NHR status enables you to take advantage of social services and privileges from both your home country and Portugal, the right to vote, own real estate, and also keep your existing citizenship and become a dual citizen.
If you come to Portugal for work, you can also profit from a 20% fixed income tax (IRS). This reduced tax rate refers to all high-value-added skilled professionals.
I - The following professionals, provided they hold at least (a) a level 4 qualification under the European Qualifications Framework, or (b) level 35 of the International Standard Classification of Education, or (c) 5 years of duly proven professional experience:
II - Directors and Managers of businesses that promote productive investment in eligible projects that qualify for tax benefits under a concession agreement entered into under the Investment Tax Code
If you’re a non-EU citizen, you can apply to citizenship through the Portugal Golden Visa programme alongside your family.
You can also obtain residency through real estate if you buy property between 280.000 to 500.000 EUR. Browse through our eligible properties here or discover what the best Portuguese places to invest in property are here.
