Major change: From real estate acquisition to scientific research, most options have significantly grown in price. New changes aim to promote investment in low-density areas, urban renovation, etc.

However, now investors have a chance to benefit from 20% discounted rates when buying commercial properties in low-density areas.

In 2021, the Portugal Golden Visa beat its closest EU rivals by a margin of 20%. It would be no exaggeration to say that it is Europe’s biggest golden visa in 2021 and the main trend of the upcoming years.

What’s for What?

One of the biggest changes affected the real estate market.

Real estate changes

  1. Investors won’t be able to buy residential real estate in high-density areas (such as Porto, Algarve, or coastal towns like Silver Coast)
  2. A residential property can be bought in low-density areas of Portugal. The minimum investment starts from €500,000 or €350,000 in case of investing in a rehabilitation project
  3.  Golden Visa applicants can buy commercial property anywhere in Portugal. The minimum investment starts from €500,000 or €350,000 in case of investing in a commercial rehabilitation project
  4. Both types of properties are available for the Golden Visa scheme in Portugal’s autonomous islands — Madeira and Azores. The minimum investment starts from €500,000 or €350,000 in case of investing  in a rehabilitation project
