A NEW SIMPLIFIED VISA FOR DIGITAL NOMADS

Since the beginning of November, Portugal has Visas available for digital nomads (self-employed) and remote workers (employed by a non-Portuguese company) from any country in the world. The requirements are quite simple because the main focus of this new Visa/Residence Permit is to attract high-skilled residents to Portugal. The Portuguese Government is convinced that, once you live in Portugal, you will never want to leave, attracting wealth with this simple strategy. After the innovative Golden Visa and D7 Visa, the Portuguese Authorities are, once again, one step ahead by attracting a whole new class of residents.
 
THE EUROPEAN UNION'S GEM
If you are a Digital Nomad or a Remote Worker, this is your opportunity to settle in a country that is considered European Union’s Gem.

ALL OF THE ABOVE, PLUS

YOU ARE ALSO REQUIRED TO HAVE...

  • An average monthly income of the last three months (from subordinate or independent work activity) of 2.840€

APPLICANTS SHALL BE AWARE THAT:

You can not enter Portugal under a tourist visa and apply here for a residence permit (yes, we will handle all the paperwork to assure that you will get both the needed Visa and the desired Residence Permit)

According to the new regulations, the first residence permit will be valid for two years - at the end of the second year, and if you keep filling the requirements - along with the requirement of living in Portugal - you can renew it for 3 more years.

At the end of the fifth year of legal residence in Portugal, you can get the Portuguese Citizenship (passport) and/or a permanent residence permit (valid for 10 years). 

US CITIZENS SHALL BE AWARE THAT:

You may qualify to exclude your foreign earnings from income up to USD $120,000/year, if you comply with the IRS exceptions.
