These new changes aim to lessen the burden of having to renew at the end of year one, within each 2 year visa period, the family that is on the application only have to stay in Portugal for a minimum period of 14 days, either consecutively or intermittent giving them the complete freedom to come and go as they please.
The visa process will now last for a total of 6 years; the option to take citizenship in Portugal after 5 years still remains and this extension to the program allows you to keep travelling across the Schengen region whilst your application is being processed. It’s important to mention that this was not allowed until now and that applicants were expected to only travel back to Portugal once the renewal was approved. With these changes, they can now travel freely whilst they wait for their citizenship to be completed.
All applications from April 2020 will qualify for the new extended visa.

Very helpful. Work with his heart. Mark is a very nice advisor.Investor from Morocco
Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.Investor from the USA
