IMPORTANT CHANGES IN 2023

From October 2023, changes to the investment participation program in the Golden Visa in Portugal came into force:


  • The minimum threshold for entering the program has increased
  • Investments in real estate are completely excluded from participation in the program.
  • The NON-HABITUAL RESIDENT regime, as of January, 2024, is only available for scientific research and innovation if it is carried out in Portugal and corresponds to certain professional activities provided for by law. That is, wealthy people who live off their savings and receive only passive income will NOT be able to take advantage of the preferential tax regime.
  • Golden Visa is the only type of residence permit in Portugal that allows residence permits from other countries, including the European Union
