Golden Visa Portugal: Qualifying criteria

There are three routes to qualify for the Golden Residence Permit Programme. Our experts can help pick the right one for you depending on your unique circumstances.

The three routes to Golden Visa residency are:

  • A €1 million capital investment
  • Create at least 10 jobs
  • Purchase property to the value of €500,000, which must be unencumbered

1. €1 million capital investment

This can be in the form of:

  • An investment of €1 million (minimum)
  • A fund deposit into a Portuguese bank account
  • The purchase of Portuguese stocks/bonds
  • A company investment

2. Create 10 jobs

The following guidelines apply:

  • You need to employ a minimum of 10 workers at minimum wage
  • All employees need to pay social security

There is no minimum investment requirement for this option.

3. Property purchase of €500,000

This is definitely the most popular option with investors. It is a fantastic way to combine your investment goals with your residency goals.

 Guidelines:

  • The property must have a minimum value of €500,000
  • Multiple properties can be purchased
  • All property can be rented out
