Tourists from the United States who wish to visit Portugal should have gotten both doses of the vaccinations recommended by the European Medicines Agency at least 14 days before they travel to Portugal, said Economy Minister Pedro Siza Vieira.

Although there still aren’t many details, it’s sure that Portugal is joining the steadily growing list of European countries that are reopening their borders to fully vaccinated US citizens, like Spain, Italy, Norway, Denmark and Croatia. It becomes important to mention that those who wish to travel to Portugal via Spain may also be able to do so hassle-free as borders between the two countries are open. 

As travel restrictions between the EU countries decrease, people and families are rushing to secure a home and become citizens of the world’s safest countries. Portugal was considered as one of the safest countries to travel to after the pandemic and has also started to provide a Health Passport and a Travel Insurance to incoming tourists, so that they are  able to move safely around the country. Learn more about these insurances here. 

More and more people are coming to Portugal thanks to the country’s Mediterranean marvels and the opportunity to benefit from some of the most favourable residency-by-investment programmes in the EU. On top of that, Portugal also holds one of the strongest passports in the world, as well as the 22nd strongest healthcare system in the world! Another reason why individuals are rushing to Portugal is the fact that high profitable properties in central Lisbon are running out due to the upcoming Golden Visa changes that will be set into motion in January 2022. In fact, those who wish to purchase the Portuguese Golden Visa in order to get healthy long-term returns, only have 6 months to apply.

It's fantastic how Ryan had complete knowledge regarding Lisbon and dealt with us in a great manner.

Akbar Ali - Investor from Pakistan

Ryan is very professional, but also friendly and knowledgeable about the Golden Visa market. He was also flexible as travelled from the Algarve to meet me in Lisbon to stand in for 1 colleague at short notice.

Investor from UK

Portugal Homes did a great job keeping me up to date with progress on my new home construction purchase by providing regular and comprehensive reports. This helped to ease anxieties about doing a home purchase in the midst of a global pandemic.

Investor from the USA

Although through Zoom, we established great confidence in George's integrity. [It was] important for us to have confidence in the staff's ability to feel aligned in views.

Donald Collie from Australia

The process was very quick and clear. I got all the information I needed in the first hour. The experience was perfect.

Tomoko Inoue from Japan

Overwhelming. Luisa has exceeded our expectations on all levels. Trust was established immediately. Enhanced by super friendly professionalism. The networks to banks, accountants, lawyers was seamless. there is not enough space here to write all the positives, enough to say we are making an offer and we only arrived 4 days ago. Its impossible to improve from perfection!
