What if I want to invest in residential properties in Lisbon, Porto or Algarve and still qualify for the Portugal Golden Visa?
Most articles on the internet will tell you that it is no longer possible. However, we have good news for you!
There is a “structured solution” that can allow you to invest in a residential property in Lisbon, Porto or Algarve of your choice, and be eligible for receiving a Golden Visa for yourself and your dependents. This solution however requires that you invest a minimum of EUR 500,000 to be eligible. This may be split in two or more eligible options but the combined investment from the investor needs to be a minimum of EUR 500,000, the same threshold that existed for acquiring prime residential properties in these regions until 2021. The best part is that the structured solution that we are talking about comes with a potential to earn annual return and can be tax efficient.
