Golden Visa Portugal: what is it?

Created in 2012, the Residence Permit for Investors program, better known as Golden Visa, provides a temporary residence visa in Portugal and free access to the Schengen area, for the holder and his/her immediate family. This visa can be obtained through a series of investments in the country.
