For those who are interested in taking advantage of the limited-time chance of obtaining Portuguese residency, the time to act is now.
It’s still possible to obtain the Golden Visa through the purchase of a property at Ombria, provided that you stay in or visit Portugal on average seven days a year over a five-year period, to maintain your Golden visa status.
An official statement made by the Portuguese government in April this year has confirmed that submissions of applications remain open before the official closing of the scheme. Though the exact end date has not been announced yet, any applications filed before the law is signed as official, will be accepted and processed.
The Portugal Golden Visa allows investors to secure Portuguese residency within a short time frame, providing visa-free travel across the EU’s Schengen Zone, access to high-quality schooling, and offering an abundance of social security and healthcare benefits. Since its launch in 2012, over 10,000 investors (and over 17,000 of their family members) have obtained Portuguese residency through this scheme.
