FISCAL MIGRATION – PORTUGAL

THE GOLDEN EU VISA SCHEME

The SCF Group is delighted to announce that that it can now arrange residence permits in Portugal for non-European Economic Area (EEA) nationals. From our initial research, it seems that this new fiscal migration service is of particular interest to wealthy Chinese, Indian and Russian clients wanting a ‘safe haven’ right of residence either immediately or in the future for themselves and their family members. The benefits include:

  • Full residency rights in Portugal;
  • No need for an immediate physical presence;
  • Full Schengen Area access with no visa restrictions;
  • Initial formalities normally only take 90 days;
  • Official Portuguese Government backed program;
  • Applications will be dealt with by either SCF Lawyers in Portugal

INVESTMENT CRITERIA

The criterion in Portugal is quite straightforward with in the case of Portugal ONLY ONE OF THE FOLLOWING being required:

  • Buy a property/villa worth €500,000.00 or more, or;
  • Deposit €1 million plus in a bank located in Portugal – This includes German and British banks;
  • Set up a new business employing 10 or more people

Of course, there are other criteria such as having to have a local fiscal representative and/or maintain accounts but all of this can be dealt with by SCF professionals in Portugal.
