Madeira the perfect
Golden Visa destination

The Golden Visa is one of the most popular pathways to Portuguese residency and citizenship.

What is a Golden Visa?

On October 6th, 2023, the Portuguese Government unveiled the “Mais Habitação” an important step towards addressing the nation's housing challenges. Among its measures, the law brought significant changes to the Golden Visa program in Portugal.

The landscape has shifted: investments in real estate categories under the Golden Visa Program are no longer available. Gone are the days of investing in real estate properties or real estate-related funds to secure a Golden Visa in Portugal.

However, the allure of the Portuguese Golden Visa program endures, offering alternative paths through various investment or donation avenues. Among these, the most sought-after option involves investing €500,000 in qualifying venture capital or private equity funds within Portugal.

Despite the adjustments, the Portuguese Golden Visa program remains a beacon for those seeking investment migration opportunities in Europe, offering a pathway to a European passport within five years.

The lesson to be learned is that the opportunity does not last forever, and if you wish to secure the current attractive terms of residence ACT NOW

You cannot assume that the law will be the same forever.
