Portugal Overview

Portugal is an extremely favourable country in Europe for many who wish to settle down and live in a friendly, beautiful, relatively low-cost country which also offers the safety and hospitality of its natives to newcomers.

With the ongoing housing crisis in Portugal, the government has changed its Golden Visa Program to tackle current economic issues. 

While the program isn’t closed, Portugal no longer allows applicants to make purchases for real estate and real estate-related funds as qualifying investments to get residency in Portugal. Still, certain Portuguese funds will remain a valid choice for prospective investors.   

As remaining investment options are much higher in price, Fast Passport Boutique recommends looking into Portugal’s D7 Visa. It is one of the most affordable European residency programs right now, with just a minimum of €7,200  yearly passive income to qualify or enough passive income to fully support you without relying on your salary.

For the Portugal Golden Visa Residence Permit via property investment, an investor must also consider the following taxes and costs:

  • “IMT” or Property Transfer Tax” is the tax on the transfer of ownership of property and it varies with the price of the property (It is a sliding scale based on the purchase price – a guideline figure is circa 5-6%)
  • Stamp Duty – normally 0.8% of the property price
  • “IMI” or Council Tax, which is the annual municipal property tax; it is levied between 0.3% and 0.5% on the property’s tax value payable on an annual basis
  • Rental income will be taxed at a rate of 28%

If the holder of the golden visa does not stay in Portugal for more than 183 consecutive days, he/she will not be required to pay taxes for income generated outside of Portugal.
