Portugal Citizenship

Featured benefits of a Portugal citizenship program :

No requirement to present an investment plan up front;
No requirement to reside legally and officially in Portugal even after the residence permit is granted. Under these new terms, amended just this January, an investor can have Portuguese residence if he spends a minimum of 7 days in the first year of residence in Portugal, and 14 in each of the following 2-year periods. That stay is a total figure per year, in other words the 7 days per year can be made up of several separate visits to the country. Nonetheless, should these requirements not be met, refusal to renew is not automatic and may be not taken into account by the authority concerned.
Above all, the applicant is entitled to Portuguese citizenship. After 6 years of official residence, the applicant can request a Portuguese Passport.
Portugal is a member of European Union and thus becoming a citizen of this country, you are automatically becoming an EU citizen with all the related benefits; from freedom of travel to work and residence within the EU.
Citizens of the European Union enjoy rights and privileges that extend from travel, work, and residence to healthcare, justice, and various social benefits.
