In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, many investors find the idea of a second residency or citizenship very appealing. Many are investing not only for the benefits that the Portuguese Golden Visa brings but also for the opportunities it offers.
Investing through Venture Capital Funds to acquire the Portuguese Golden Visa enables investors to obtain the Golden Visa but also easy global mobility for themselves and their family members, volatility management, and investment diversification.
Portugal has become one of the EU countries that have granted the most golden visas in 2020, with more than 22,000 residence permits sold since 2012 and €5 billion raised, with a forecast to climb 10.5% in 2021.
The Scheme is seen as one of the most successful immigration programs in Europe, granting investors the right to live, work and study in the country, with the additional benefit of visa-free travel within the Schengen Zone.
The requirements for the Portuguese Golden Visa are fairly straight forward and one of the reasons that attract most investors from all over the world is the period that the investor’s presence is required in the country of only 7 days (consecutive or not) in the first year and 14 days (consecutive or not) in the subsequent periods of two years.
This alone has enabled most investors to enjoy the benefits of the scheme while still living in their original country and enjoying the benefits of the program.
