Portugal is ending golden visa program by in one or two months parliamentary discussions are underway to vote on a legislation to terminate this scheme to avoid a severe housing crisis with rising costs of properties along with EU pressure to phase out all citizenship and residence schemes. It is still possible to submit Golden Visa applications before the legislation not yet been approved.

The Good news is Golden visa applications submitted until mid-July are valid. The parliamentary vote was tentatively set for July 19th. After the vote, the proposed law must be signed by the President and published in the official gazette. These steps will take at least two weeks. As a result, the GV deadline will be early October 2023.

Fast Track Golden Visa

We offer a unique fast track application process with a renowned hotel development in Portugal for last minute investor application. This is the cheapest investment we can offer to buyers. Investors must remember that it takes 2 weeks to get Portugal NIF Tax number and opening of banking accounts to start the application process. We do not offer residential properties during this last minute, as scouting, registration paperwork consume too much time (which we dont have) on top of that property registration and other taxes are high creating additional burden.
