Legal Advisor - Golden Visa Portugal - Residency for Investors

The Golden Visa program launched by the Portuguese Authorities in the end of 2012, is a fast track for investors to obtain a fully valid residency permit in Portugal and consequently free access to the vast majority of European countries (Schengen area). The Golden Visa scheme has become a successfully running program and partly due to its reduced minimum stay requirements, is now probably the most attractive residency program for investors in the world.
