The Portugal Golden Visa program was established in 2012 and allows non-European Union citizens to obtain Portuguese residency in exchange for investing in the country. The program is designed to attract foreign investment and has proven to be a popular choice for individuals looking to live, work, or study in Portugal or anywhere within the European Union.

To be eligible for the program, individuals must make a required minimum investment in the arts, cultural heritage, or scientific research sectors. Additionally, they must hold a valid passport, have a clean record, and hold health insurance in Portugal. Perks of the program include the ability to live, work, and study in Portugal, visa-free travel throughout the Schengen Area, and a potential path to Portuguese citizenship.
