Launched in 2012, Portugal’s Golden Visa Program offers non-European Union investors a fast track to obtaining a valid residency permit. The visa is initially valid for one year, renewable twice thereafter at 2-year intervals.
Applicants and their families may obtain their Portugal second passport by applying for Portuguese citizenship after 6 years of permanent residency. A Portuguese passport is a prized possession, as the country’s rich history and ease of travel makes this investment program quite popular around the world.
