From the food to the weather, Portugal is internationally well-known for its high quality of life. It has around 2,500 to 3,200 hours of sunshine a year and a pleasant climate all year long.
The safety of the cities also contributes to Portugal’s high quality of life. Portugal is among the top safest countries in the world. Its most prominent cities, Lisbon and Porto, offer entertainment options for all ages that will please your entire family.
Investing in Portugal can grant the investors and their families a unique benefit: the Golden Visa. The Portugal Golden Visa Program is one of the simplest and fastest ways for high-net-worth individuals to obtain a residency visa in Europe and eventually gain access to European citizenship. Family members of the investor (spouse, financially dependent children, and financially dependent parents) may also be included in the application and become European citizens.
The resident permit grants the foreign citizens the same treatment as nationals, particularly about social security, tax benefits, European Union membership (EU), recognition of diplomas, certificates, and other professional titles. It also grants access to goods and services available to the public, as well as the application of provisions that concede them exclusive rights.
For most intents and purposes, the resident permit put the foreign nationals (non-EU) on par with other citizens of Europe. One of the greatest benefits of this is that Golden Visa holders may apply for a permanent residence permit or acquire Portuguese nationality by naturalization in the 5th year if they fulfill certain requirements in accordance with the law.
In 2018, 482.7 million Euros were generated by the Tourism and Hospitality industry in the areas of Porto and North Portugal. Porto houses a world heritage site by UNESCO. Tourism is a growing industry in Portugal: a 17% growth in the number of visitors in the country (20 million visits) in 2017.
With its mild climate, 3000 hours of sunshine per year, and 850 km of splendid beaches bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is the perfect holiday destination all year round. Porto, the second biggest city in the country, was elected The Best European Destination in 2014, 2016, and 2017.
Porto’s primary source of revenue comes from Tourism and Exportation. Porto is among the top 5 cities that welcome tourists in the EU with an occupancy rate of over 70%. Hence, the real estate business and the hotel industry are one of the most profitable investment opportunities currently available in Portugal, especially in Porto.
The Portugal Golden Visa is a profitable and safe choice that concedes lots of benefits with very few requirements for its applicants. There are no requirements for language, management experience, or education credentials to apply for the Golden Visa. It’s a fast and simple process to receive residence permits.
Portugal doesn’t charge tax on worldwide income. In addition, the investment can be refundable after five years (depending on the project). Also, Golden Visa holders have the right to live, to work, do business, to study in Portugal, and can travel freely within the Schengen zone. Investors can easily apply for citizenship and be granted EU benefits for them and their families.
