Being the holder of one of the most powerful passports in the world, Portugal tops the list of places where South African clients seek residency by Golden Visa investment for the past months. The socio-economic outlook in South Africa has led the population to take action.

Besides the appealing year-round climate, the prosperous economy, and excellent educational facilities, South Africans are looking at factors such as immediate profit, rental income, or housing appreciation when looking into Portugal’s residency by investment programme.

If you are considering making this move of relocating to Portugal, it can help you pay dividends as the country offers a favourable tax jurisdiction for financially prudent and high-net-worth investors.

For example, by investing at least €280K in Portuguese real estate, following other criteria, South Africans can secure residency on fairly straightforward terms, while also benefiting tax advantages through the Non-Habitual Residency programme.

The residency application is relatively easy, and as a Portuguese resident, you’re allowed to live in the country and travel anywhere in the Schengen Area. 

Get in touch with us to apply for Portuguese residency.

The favourable investment and residential landscape make it easy to see why Portugal has become a thriving destination for South Africans. If you’re from South Africa and wish to relocate or retire in Portugal, we can also assure you that the sunshine all year-round and the similar warm climate here will definitely not give you withdrawals from the South African weather! 

What do you need to know about retiring in Portugal?

According to SEF numbers, over the past three years, more than 350 South African families have applied to the Portugal Golden Visa programme. 

This year, despite the pandemic, the first quarter of the year, which saw a downfall in the market, has also been heavily compensated by the month May as Portugal Golden Visa investments exceeded, blustering over €146 million. Numbers show that in a single month, 270 applicants invested €146.2 million, bringing Portugal back on track for a statistically normal year. Read more about it here. 

Location wise, Lisbon continues to be at the top 10 targets for real estate investments in 2020. However, the perception of the country’s attractiveness among investors is gradually shifting, as the surrounding cities are competing for the deserved attention.
