Key Discussion Topics
What are the recent changes from the Portuguese Parliament on the Golden Visa?

At this moment the proposed decision for the Portugal Golden Visa bill at the end of the programme is at a standstill, and the Portugal Golden Visa programme is fully eligible and ongoing for new and existing clients who already placed their applications. The bill on the Golden Visa includes various housing matters, ranging from long & short residential rentals, social housing for low-income rental accommodation, and lastly, the Portugal Golden Visa programme that is focused on real estate investments on commercial and touristic property in high-density (coastal) regions, and residential properties situated in low-density regions (interior) of the country. These high-density regions are considered highly populated territories such as Lisbon, Setubal, Leiria, Coimbra, Aveiro, Viseu, Porto, Braga, Viana do Castelo and Faro.

What to expect after the May 19th, 2023 in regards to the Golden Visa in Portugal?

As soon as the official bill is passed through the Portuguese Parliament on May 19th, 2023, the final outcome will be the termination of the visa programme. However, this is important to understand that all clients will have a time allowance (either 30 days, 6 months to a year) for clients to still place a Golden Visa.  In the past, the Portuguese government always provided a timeframe prior to be the absolute end. The end of the Golden Visa will be officially announced on a government official press site, which is called the Gazette (Diario da Republica) in Portugal, and this will be presented within one to two weeks; once that is placed it will act as the final date for Golden Visa submission.

How long does the initial purchasing procedure take, and how does it affect the Golden Visa application?

Clients looking to invest through Golden Visa, once a property is purchased, the first step will be to secure a bank declaration for your funds and register your property, this process will take a few days.

Alongside the above information, the following key documentation must be presented:

  • Keep his/her real estate investment for a period of 6 years;
  • The funds must come from outside Portugal;
  • A valid document for legal entry and stay in Portugal;
  • No references in Portuguese Immigration and Schengen Services;
  • No criminal record;
  • Stay in Portugal for a minimum period of 14 days, either consecutively or intermittently, within each 2-year visa period.

After the full documentation is presented and submitted to SEF (Immigration and Borders Service), the initial submission process should take about three to four weeks minimum (time allowance provided by the government) for the Golden Visa. As the 5-year programme has undergone several changes, normally from experience the Portuguese Government provides a year allowance granted for new client submissions prior to changes/termination, and we are expecting the same for the passing of this new bill.

How does citizenship with the Portugal Golden Visa work?

After you have made your real estate investment (minimum 280K), the client after five years can apply for citizenship. One of the main reasons the Golden Visa in Portugal is so popular is due to the splendid advantages for non-EU nationals with: the opportunity of earning EU residency; freedom of travel within the EU Schengen Zone; and being able to study, work, and live in Portugal. Best of all, the programme is great for families, as it allows for family inclusion (spouse, children, dependents, parents).
