Friday, 27 December 2019 - Golden Visa

It is official that the first foreign investors covered by the Golden Visa program in Portugal have already obtained Portuguese citizenship. These first requests were approved recently by the Portuguese Civil Registry.


The processes concerning the Golden Visa Program, Permanent Residence and Nationality followed their normal procedures and all requirements associated were fulfilled, which we already had the opportunity to communicate.


It is thus definitely proven that, after the completion of the five-year Golden Visa Program, all applicants are eligible to obtain Portuguese nationality.
