Since 2014, Sable International has been helping South African high-net-worth individuals gain Portuguese residency through our Golden Visa Portugal service.

A Golden Visa for you and your family

The Golden Residence Permit Programme is a citizenship by investment initiative run by the Portuguese immigration board. The programme provides a route to Portuguese residency, and eventually citizenship, for you and your family. The main criterion is a capital investment into the Portuguese economy.

There are three main investment categories available to participants:

  1. A €1 million capital investment into Portugal 
  2. Establish a Portuguese company that employs more than 10 people 
  3. Purchase real estate with a minimum value of €500,000, which must be unencumbered 

New categories are periodically added to the list, so be sure to check with one of our experts before deciding whether or not this citizenship by investment programme is the right choice for you and your family.

What does Portuguese residency entitle you to?

As a South African with Portuguese residency, you will be allowed to live and work in Portugal and you and your family will have the right to visa-free travel throughout the European Schengen Area. This makes the programme especially attractive to executives wishing to work through out the European Union.

First residency, then EU citizenship

Through this residency programme you can qualify for permanent residence in Portugal after five years. Once you’ve been a permanent resident for a year you can apply for full Portuguese citizenship. Thereafter you can apply for a passport and become an official citizen of the EU.
