What are the new changes in the Golden Visa program?

No worries. By now nothing has changed. If you are in the middle of the process or have it started you will still have time. The new rules will not have any effect on the investments made in 2021. Our lawyers are already working to build a safe timeline of investment. 


When will it have an effect?


The new rules will be valid for investments made from January 2022. Until there you can still consider all the options of investments.  


What are the new options for citizenship by investment?


The following options meet the criteria for citizenship by investment in  Portugal from January 2022:

  • The purchase of a habitational real estate in Portugal  of at least 280.000 EUR will be valid for the program if it is in the Autonomous Regions of the Azores and Madeira or in the interior territories. You can also verify the areas of low-density on our site.
  • You can still invest in service (hotel, tourist renting) or industrial real estate in the cities or the coastal regions after 2021

Why invest in real estate for the Golden Visa?

  • Even during a financial crisis like corona the rents will maintain safe while other options like funds will likely loose capital which implies a high invest stability.
  • Although the prices in Lisbon have increased in the last years, Portugal is currently the most attractive real estate market in Europe with a strong growth rate of about 5,6% per year (idealista.de) despite the corona crisis, low investment prices and excellent rentl returns. 
  • Portugal is attracting currently many international investors because of the high profitability in the real estate market. Real estate can grant a net annual capital growth rate of around 8% and even more.
  • If you have to leave your home country you have a second home that you can use for yourself. If your children want to live in Europe to study they already have a place to stay.
  • Portugal has developed in recent years to a prime holiday destination in Europe with approximately 26 Mio. tourists in 2019 (dinheirovivo.pt).  The cities in Lisbon and Porto attract many tourists due to their good connection with low price airlines and cruise ships. The entire Algarve is a famous region for classical beach holidays. 

  • There is also an extremely high potential for long term renting. Many smaller cities have opened their Universities to international students which created a huge demand for student housings.
