Obtain Portuguese citizenship

As Portugal is a member of the European Union, obtaining a Portuguese passport
and nationality means that you will be entitled move and work freely in all other EU countries.

We offer two residency and citizenship programmes for non-EU citizens interested in
either investing in, or retiring to, Portugal.

Portugal: A gateway to EU residency

The Portuguese government has taken steps to increase foreign investment in key sectors of its economy through various programmes.

These programmes have been extremely successful, with thousands of non-European Union (EU) nationals flocking to the friendly Western European nation to take advantage of the high quality of life on offer.

Why thousands move to Portugal each year

The standard of living in Portugal is high and the cost of living, especially compared to the rest of Europe, is reasonable. 

The biggest draw-card for non-EU nationals interested in securing residency rights in Portugal is perhaps the ability that they afford you to live and work throughout the Schengen area. As a holder of Portuguese residency, you will be able to pass it to your children. 

Alternatively, if your family has immigrated to the UK or anywhere else in Europe, Portugal’s residency by investment programmes give you a chance to reunite with your family while making a sound investment into a stable economy.
