Golden Visa

Get Portuguese Citizenship through property investment 

Property investment is one of the top ways in which investors obtain a Portuguese Golden Visa, which confers a residence permit. The portuguese golden visa program is the most popular scheme in Europe, with numerous advantages for the investors. Since the start of the program in 2012, there have been more than 9 thousand Golden Visas issued and more than 16 thousand for family members.

We have a selection of hand picked real estates specially destined to people who want to invest in the portuguese market, while taking advantage of the unique opportunity of getting a european passport.


If you buy a Property in Portugal:

  • You and your family can live, work and study in Portugal. After just 5 years with a residency permit, you qualify for portuguese citizenship and an european passport.
  • You’ll be able to travel freely in the schengen countries - access to 26 nations in the EU & Visa-free travel to 183 nations.
  • You’ll benefit from a short stay requirement (1 week in the first year and after that, two weeks every two years).
  • You have the option to become a non-habitual resident and benefit from special fiscal conditions(you pay little to no tax for ten years).


What are the Conditions?

An investment of €500,000 (or €350,000 reduced option) in real estate in Portugal will gain a residency permit for a family including dependent children. The golden visa can be renewed every two years providing the applicant spends two weeks in the country every two years.

In Portugal citizenship can be granted without the applicant having resided in the country. However the investor having acquired residency through the golden visa programme will need to demonstrate ties to the country and pass a basic language test. Citizenship of Portugal and a second passport conveys the right to live, work and study anywhere in the European Union.


Minimum Investment

  • Acquisition of one or more properties with a total value equal to or exceeding 500.000 Euros
  • Acquisition of property over 30 years old or property located in urban renewal areas with rehabilitation works totaling the amount equal to or greater than 350.000 Euros. This projects need to be approved by SEF and it’s essential to ensure you have the right project and legal advice before proceeding with such investment.

True Memories has experience of many applications and projects for the €350,000 reduced initiative. Please contact us for details on our real estate investments.


Golden Visa Property Investment Includes: 


  • Properties that are acquired individually or through sole proprietorship companies in which the investor is a partner
  • Leased properties
  • Properties encumbered, by the amount that exceeds the minimum amount of the investment

Property Investment in Portugal 


The portuguese market, like many southern European countries, saw property prices decrease with the credit crisis. In 2015, prices were still 20% to 30% below their previous peak in 2007. Since then, prices have been rising, especially in Lisbon, and investors have had great returns lately.

Right now, investors who buy into the portuguese real estate market for the Golden Visa, have very positive forecasts for returns in the coming years. Buyers should know the difference between the different types of properties and cities or even neighborhoods, in order to make a prediction for the return on investment. Our team of experts can help with the best choice of property for you and guide you through the whole process of obtaining a Golden Visa through property investment in Portugal.


Investing in Lisbon - The Time is Now

Recently, the Portuguese parliament passed a law to end the real estate Golden Visa Program for Lisbon and Porto metropolitan areas and other coastal areas in 2021. If you are interested in purchasing a property in Lisbon or any of these areas, this is your last chance, as the regulation will come into effect on the 1st of July 2021.
