The Portugal Golden Visa program is considered one of the most attractive European residency programs due to the value of the benefits it offers to investors when they obtain it, the most important of which are freedom of movement and obtaining permanent European citizenship. Portugal is a European country and within the Schengen Group, located in the southwestern part of Europe alongside Spain . Portugal is characterized by its desirable Mediterranean atmosphere, delicious traditional cuisine, and ancient history. Portugal's population is about 10 million people, its capital is Lisbon, its currency is the euro, and its people speak Portuguese and widely speak English.

One of the things that the investor is looking for is that the residency requirements to maintain a golden visa or obtain Portuguese citizenship in the future are the lowest in Europe.
