The Portugal Golden Visa Program
Portugal has run its residence by investment scheme since 2012. The country has a rich history and ranks high in the Human Development Index Ranking. It is at the same time, one of the world's most globalized and peaceful nations.
As Portugal is an EU and Schengen Area member, those holding Portuguese residency can travel throughout the whole Schengen territory visa-free, as well as bring their spouse and children to Portugal.
