Portugal has set up special programmes allowing non-EU citizens to obtain temporary residence permits through a simplified and rapid procedure. Investors will be able to access three separate programmes:

  • Residence permit for investment activities ("Golden Visa"): this is considered as capital transfers, job creation or the acquisition of real estate that fulfil certain conditions;
  • Residence permit for entrepreneurship and/or innovation activities ("Start-up Visa"): foreign entrepreneurs wishing to start an innovative business will have access to a residence visa that will give them the possibility to create from scratch or relocate an existing StartUP to Portugal;
  • Residence permit for highly qualified workers ("Tech Visa"): aims to ensure that highly qualified staff, foreign to the European Union, can access the jobs created by Portuguese companies in a simplified manner. This programme is aimed at technological and innovative companies, inserted in the global market, that want to attract to Portugal qualified and specialized staff from third countries.
