    To obtain a Portuguese Golden Visa, you must bring the minimum investment amount from outside of Portugal into the country. This means that the minimum investment cannot be taken out as a loan or mortgage from a Portuguese financial institution.

    You can liquidate assets (such as investments or property) from outside of Portugal in order to raise the funds required to begin the process.

    The eligibility requirements for the Portuguese Golden Visa are actually quite simple:

    • You and your immediate family have a clean criminal record
    • You aren’t currently a citizen of an EU country (if you’re from the UK, Brexit means that you’re eligible for the visa)

    If you meet these criteria you can start your application.
