If you wish to immigrate to Portugal and you have regular income from a pension or investments, you may apply for a Temporary Residence Permit


You may get a temporary residence permit if you have regular passive income from your investments and you wish to settle in Portugal. Usually the permit is granted to those who can prove that they have a monthly regular income of at least €1,070.

Your direct dependents may be included in the application.

The Temporary residence permit will be valid for one year, renewable for two-year periods, provided that you still meet the requirements for which it was issued.

After the 5th year of legal residency, you may apply for a permanent residence permit. The PR permit will allow you to live and work indefinitely in Portugal.

To be eligible you may be required to have a place of accommodation in Portugal, have sufficient means of subsistence and some basic knowledge of Portuguese.

After the 6th year of legal residency, you may be eligible for naturalization. To become a Portuguese citizen, you may be required to attend to an interview, show ties to the country, be able to speak Portuguese and knowledge of history, culture and values of the country.
