Golden Visa Portugal

Golden Visa Portugal legislation

As of January 1st, 2022, the Golden Visa Portugal legislation has been amended by the Portuguese Government, adding some new changes and rules to the previous investment criteria to invest in the Golden Visa Portugal Programme.

Among the new rules, the minimum investment increased from 350,000 € to 500,000 € for Funds.

For Residential Property

Acquisition with the purpose of qualifying for Golden Visa is now restricted to the islands of Madeira and Azores and to low-density areas across mainland Portugal, excluding the regions of Lisbon, Oporto and the Algarve.

Although these regions are still attractive in terms of lifestyle and quality of living, they have not shown in the past, and are not expected to show in the future, the same value creation as Lisbon, Oporto, and Algarve did in the last ten years.

Funds are dully regulated by CMVM – Comissão do Mercado de Valores Mobiliários

(i.e Portuguese Securities Market Commission).

Investing in a Fund has a faster processing with a simpler and more efficient subscription process than the sourcing and acquisition of properties.

Investing in a fund is a more cost-efficient option, with no entry fee nor exit fee whilst investing in properties the Main Investor must pay transfer fees, stamp duty amongst other fees and costs during the lifespan of holding the property.

Additionally, by investing in a Fund there is a potential for higher earning investments than the properties. The tax benefits obtained by investing in Funds (no tax on dividends nor on capital gains) together with the average target returns above 6% IRR, make Funds the option with the highest net return.

The Funds route does not have geographic restrictions, and in 2022 can continue to invest in Lisbon. Therefore, investing in Funds, Real Estate based, makes the investment in this type of Funds the highest net return option.
