Introducing Portugal

Portugal is one of Europe’s most historically influential countries, with a rich past of global exploration and trade. Today, as a member of the EU, it provides an excellent launch pad for anyone wanting to access the 26 countries of the European Schengen Area.

An ideal platform for European travel and business

As well as visa-free travel within the Schengen Area, the Golden Visa Programme provides a sure route to Portuguese and European Union Citizenship after five years. Portugal is an extremely family-friendly nation, and the Golden Visa Programme extends to dependants, providing an excellent option for families seeking a European base.

The Programme requires just seven days residence within Portugal for the first year and 28 days in subsequent years. This allows for freedom of access across Europe with minimal residency requirement.
