While Iran is a sanctioned nation,  applicants from sanctioned countries have been known to get approved for the Portugal HQA Visa based on the strength and merits of their startup and/or research funding proposal, especially if they’ve been residing outside of Iran for a meaningful period of time.

They are also able to apply for the Portuguese Golden Visa – including the €200K Cultural Golden Visa in 2022/2023.

We therefore encourage you to get in touch to discuss your specific situation today.
