Splendid Medieval castles, quaint villages, vibrant cities, golden beaches, vineyards nestled within fertile mountain valleys, a pleasant climate and a welcoming culture – Portugal is all of these and more. Home to a rich history and longstanding traditions. Celts, Romans, Visigoths, Moors and Christians alike have contributed to the development of the Iberian nation.
A long-standing member of the EU, Portugal is also member of the Schengen area of 26 European states. The Portugal Golden Visa grants residency in Portugal to people who invest in properties worth at least €500,000 or create 10 jobs in Portugal. Dependant children and dependant parents can qualify under the same application and they can apply for Portuguese citizenship after five years of residency.
