This programme leads to the Portuguese citizenship and is designed to attract high net-worth individuals to invest in the economy by opening a new business or branching out an existing one in Portugal.

The Portugal D2 Visa is currently the best, fastest, and most efficient way of obtaining Residency within the European Union with benefits such as family reunification and visa-free travel over the Schengen Zone and most cost-effective path to citizenship in the EU.

One of the most valuable benefits of the programme is the ability to achieve EU citizenship in 5 years. You and your family can attain the D2 Visa as soon as 3 months from the application process time.

Portugal is considered one of the safest countries in the world, ranking #7 in the 2023 Global Peace Index, revealing it to be the ideal location for a Plan B solution. You and your family can benefit from great public and private healthcare systems, excellent higher education and schools, along with clean air quality, a climate offering over 300 days of sunshine.

4. What are the advantages of doing business in Portugal?

Portugal has a prime location, offering the perfect point of entry to access to the European market. As a member of the European Union, Portugal has a strong economy while also enjoying the benefits of the single market and the freedom of movement, goods, and services. Portugal has strong international relations with other countries, such as China, India, Israel, the United States, the United Kingdom, among many others.

Portugal's exceptional standing is not just international. The country has a stable political scenario and consistently ranks among the safest in the world. In fact, in 2023, Portugal ranked #7 in the Global Peace Index, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a low-risk environment that can produce high returns on their investments.

The country has a strong ecological Policy, having one of the cleanest airs in Europe, together with a substantiable environment. Portugal also consistently produces highly skilled workers, a result of the country's deep focus on education. It is no wonder Portuguese schools and universities are often found on the ranks of the best in Europe.

This is also reflected in the population's English-speaking capabilities, further easing the integration of the business in the country and increasing profitability. Combining this with the arguably lower cost of living in Portugal, there is no shortage of reasons why Portugal is the perfect location, offering nothing but advantages to grow and branch out a business.

5. How is the D2 Visa renewed?

The process can be done entirely online. When it is first issued, the D2 visa has a validity of four months. During this period, the investor, or their chosen representative with power of attorney, must schedule an appointment in order to convert it into a Residency Permit. This Permit has a validity of 1 year and must be consecutively renewed up until the fifth-year mark. At that time, the applicant(s) are eligible to become Permanent Residents or Citizens.

6. Are there any tax incentives to pursue the Portugal D2 Visa?

Yes! Portugal offers a series of taxation benefits for those seeking to invest in Portugal, especially in the areas of Lisbon and the Algarve, including an exclusive favourable tax regime with several exemptions. Contact one of our experts today to find out more about this.

7. What business sector should I invest in Portugal?

The main business industries in Portugal are tourism, startups, textiles, cork, auto-parts manufacturing, winemaking, oil production, renewable energies, among many others. Our experts can properly advise you on which sector to pursue.
