Immigrating to another country is typically an administration intensive process – and especially if you’re buying a property in Portugal in the process.

The D7 Visa Program is generally considered to be one of the fastest, most affordable ways of gaining Portuguese residency, however it does require you to stay in-country for longer than 6 months per year in order to maintain your legal residency status over time.

Alternatively, you can visit the country twice a year for a minimum of 2 months per visit, provided that you are not outside of country for longer than 6 consecutive months at a time.
