Investment Options

The Portugal Residency Program is known as the Golden Residence Permit (GRP), in which it grants a Golden Visa, or a residency, to non-EU nationals looking to invest in Portugal. The golden visa will be valid for 5 years and is renewable, after which the applicant can apply for permanent residency, and then for citizenship a year later however after passing a basic language test in the Portuguese language.
