Economy

There have been considerable changes over the last two decades with regards to the Portuguese economy.

The Golden Residence Permit is granted to non-EU citizens who invest in Portuguese property under certain requirements. Holders of the permit/visa can enjoy access to the Europe Schengen area.

The upturn in Portugal’s property market growth in 2014 reflects a positive outlook for 2015, and the time to act is now.
