Portugal’s Golden Visa
Portugal’s Golden Visa programme has been one of the most successful residence programmes in the EU, particularly in view of the fact that successful applicants could apply for Portuguese citizenship after 5 years of being approved through the Golden Visa programme. The Golden Visa allows an individual and his/ her family to obtain residence in Portugal subject to the satisfaction of one of the investment criteria.
Drawing on the support of our tax and corporate teams, we have supported families restructure their investment and business structures accordingly. After advising applicants on which programme is best suited for them, we lead them through the application process.
At Seed we have a team of individuals assisting our clients before, during and after obtaining residence in Portugal. We assist and advise our clients both from the aspect of the legal requirements, tax implications and also show clients around the most interesting parts of Portugal. We take a personal approach to our clients’ needs and ensure they are fully aware of the requirements and obligations before they make a final decision of investing in the Portuguese programme. We are proud to say that we have built long-standing personal relationships with our clients given our personal yet professional approach. The programme has a number of benefits including:
Access to, and free travel within, the Schengen area
Access to high standards of education and healthcare
The possibility to reside in Portugal, in a political and economically stable jurisdiction
The possibility to apply for citizenship in Portugal after 5 years of approval under the Golden Visa
