Update 22th April 2020:

 

In February 2020 the government announced that there will be changes regarding the purchase of real estate in the cities Porto and Lisbon. The idea was to stop golden visa real estate purchases in the two cities.  These changes were planned be valid in the beginning of 2021.

 

Due to the corona crisis this changes have been suspended. So you can purchase real estate for the golden visa in Porto and Lisbon for the golden visa application without worries.

 

An official source of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs told "Dinheiro Vivo" that the legislative change "is not a priority at this moment". The sector, moreover, continues to ask for caution when reviewing the regime. The president of APEMIP, Luís Lima, considers that, even after the end of the year, the Government “should think twice” before changing this regime. “Nobody is going to get out of this crisis unscathed and the country would be very grateful that these millions of euros would come in”, says the official in charge of the same publication.

 

An opinion shared by the general director of CBRE, Francisco Horta e Costa, for whom these instruments “could be fundamental again in the recovery of the post-pandemic market”,

Is important to pay attention to: 

 

Tip 1: Check your NIF regimentation: Why? You have to check this because the visa applicant becomes a tax resident in Portugal. For that reason, the foreign applicants for the Golden Visa who go for the  interview step become bound to the tax regime, even those who do not intend to live in Portugal. However, there is good news, with this visa you are categorized as a non-habitual resident, which guarantees you do not have to pay most kind of taxes here.

 

Consult your Golden Visa Lawyer and make sure that you are categorized as a resident in Portuguese territory. If you are still registered as a non-resident, you must request a change of address and status for resident, with any Finance Service or Citizen's Shop.

 

Tip 2: It is important to make sure that you have all the needed documents for applying for a Golden Visa before starting the application process.

  • Proceed with the payment of the DUC. This document must be with you on the interview later, take a copy of the payment receipt.

The documentation analysis takes an average of three (3) to six (6) months, for this reason we recommend that the family reunification process be carried out together with the of the investor, this option it is valid for family members whose process analysis fee has already been paid. Check below the step by step indicated by SEF in the case of family reunification:

If the application contains irregularities, SEF itself will indicate, in which case it will be necessary to make the correction and apply for the gold visa. Only after this documentary approval is it possible to schedule your interview at SEF. Once approved, you can now make an appointment. To do so, log in to the ARI (Golden Visa) portal and on the Application page, proceed to the “Calendar” option, select the most convenient day and time.

 

Tip 3: Because it is a long process, we recommend that for the interview you have a copy of all documents that have been digitally attached to the ARI portal (golden visa) updated, even if there has been no change, the SEF’s inspector may require that the documents are valid.

 

THE INTERVIEW: At this stage, your biometric data will be collected. This occurs since 2006 have become mandatory for visas. At the service station, photos of each visa applicant will be taken and the 10 fingerprints collected. If biometric data have already been collected, in the context of a previous visa application, less than four and a half years ago, the data may be copied. Children under the age of 12 and people unable to provide fingerprints do not need do this collection.

 

Pearls of Portugal recommends that the entire process should be done by a Golden Visa lawyer. The lawyer will be able  categorize correctly and attach the documents more assurance, aiming at more efficiency and less waiting time.


Why move to Portugal?

In this time of uncertainty due to COVID-19, many questions arise regarding the future and better conditions for living, health, safety, jobs, and education systems. The search for a better quality of life and access to an efficient health system is one of the main reasons to apply for the golden visa and move even to Portugal.

 

Who can use the public and private services in Portugal?

  • Foreign Citizens with dual Portuguese citizenship, who have a Tax Identification Number (NIF)    
  • Foreigners and their relatives with a residence visa, such as the Golden Visa  (ARI)   
  • Foreigners from the Member States of the European Union, EEA or Switzerland;      
  • Foreigners with bilateral agreements with Portugal such as Andorra, Angola, Brasil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, São Tomé and Príncipe, Morocco, Mozambique, Quebec, and Tunisia.      

Health system in Portugal

Do you know how the Portuguese health system works? Below we will talk a little about the Portuguese public and private health system and because it has become a reference in the world especially during the COVID-19 crisis.

 

Public health

The National Health System - SNS was created 41 years ago, a government agency that seeks to guarantee the right and protection of health. It consists of all services and public entities providing care, such as hospital establishments, health centers, and local units focused on primary health care.

 

To have the right to this public health system, it is necessary to be registered in the National Registry of Users - RNU at the health unit closest to your place of residence. With this number, you will be referred to the general practitioner, your family doctor who will be responsible for monitoring your health.

 

The Portuguese Public Health Service is not free. For each consultation or procedure, an amount called a "moderating" fee is charged. If there is a need to consult a specialist, your family doctor will provide you with a referral, which can be used to perform the consultation or examination in the public or private system. Below the values practiced from 2006 to 2019:

Health System Portugal Costs
Health System Portugal Costs Urgencies

As of the beginning of this year, 2020,  fees in the health centers and all acts prescribed by family doctors and professionals of the national health service are no longer charged. In pharmacies there is a big discount on the medicines indicated by the family doctor, these health expenses are deductible from the annual income tax return.

 

Private Health

The network of hospitals and private health centers in Portugal is also extensive and has well-equipped hospitals, to purchase an extra private health insurance or request unique consultations.

 

The amounts vary widely depending on the coverage, companies and the age of the insured, varying from ten to seventy euros per month. These categories of health insurance are reimbursed, that is, in addition to the amount paid monthly, it will be necessary to pay a usage fee or a moderating fee at the time of the procedure, for example, a consultation ranging from fifteen to fifty euros depending on the doctor's specialty.

 

In Portugal, there is also a grace period that varies according to the contract established between you and the insurance, on average ranging from 60 days to one year. Anyone who legally resides in the country can purchase health insurance, just have the tax identification number  and look for the insurance that best suits your needs. Below the average values practiced for some services by the private network, which may vary:

Health System Portugal Costs private health

Public versus Private what is the best option?

 

Regarding the quality of care, it is very similar, because most health professionals work in both the public and private sectors. The main difference is the speed of scheduling appointments and carrying out procedures. While in the public sector to carry out a blood test it takes - depending on the urgency - an average of one month. In the private network it is possible to schedule appointments and tests for the same day. Another advantage is the value of specific tests, for example, a blood test that costs around 30 euros, when purchasing health insurance can cost up to 5 euros.

Education in Portugal

Portugal currently has a literacy rate of 95 percent. Focused on good structuring, teaching in foreign languages, and sport, the child who spends his entire school term in Portugal can count on quality and complete education. Divided into three stages, the child is 12 years old in his literacy process from kindergarten through basic education and secondary school.

 

  • kindergarten: it is aimed at children from 3 to 6 years old, however, it has few places for having few schools directed to this phase of life;
  • basic education: starts at 6 years old, is taken from the first to the ninth year, thus having the duration and 9 years.
  • secondary education: already a teenager, at the age of 15, he starts the tenth year going up to the twelfth, closing the cycle of initial studies ending with 18 years.

 

The academic year here is different from some countries, it starts in September and ends around January of the following year. After a brief pause, classes are resumed from February until June.

 

The most up-to-date data we have are from the last ranking made in 2018 by the Directorate-General for Education and Science Statistics (DGEEC), which showed the best private schools in descending order:

Private schools in Portugal have a relatively high cost compared to the costs of public schools, which, like the health system, are not free. These costs vary according to the monthly income of parents or guardians, the lower the income, the lower the cost, and vice versa. To register your child in a public school, you should look for a parish council, the body responsible for the school administration. When arriving in Portugal, parents should look for the Parish Council closest to their residence and find out about which school can receive their child. In the case of private schools, just go to the school with the requested documentation.

 

The Universities of Portugal are considered good in the world ranking. Among the best are the University of Lisbon, University of Nova de Lisboa, university of Coimbra, University of Aveiro and University of Minho. 

Security in Portugal

In the second half of 2019, Portugal moved from fourth to third place in the Global Peace Index. This ranking is produced by the Institute of Economics and Peace, which analyzes and classifies 163 countries (99.7% of the world population) according to 23 qualitative and quantitative peace indicators including indicators in the aspects of public security, management of external and internal conflicts in addition to combating terrorism.

 

So Portugal has become one of the top three most peaceful and safe cities in the world to live in. Standing out even from the neighbors, Spain and France, and being below only Iceland.

Besides, as it is a country of not very extensive dimensions and has broad support and social services, there is a great decrease in crime rates compared to neighboring countries, also contributing to an effective response by the police and intelligence services.
