    Frequently asked questions
    How can Lincoln Global Partners assist me with my Portugal Residency application?

    Lincoln Global Partners is a boutique immigration consultancy firm specializing in residency by investment programs throughout Europe and The Caribbean. We can assist you through the entire process from the initial stage of evaluating which residency program is most suitable to find eligible investment opportunities, to handling your residency application.

    How long does the Portugal residency process take?

    This depends on which residency program you decide to proceed with. The D programs such as the D7 Visa for retirees and the D8 Visa for Digital Nomad Visas can be processed within 3-6 months. Whereas, the Portugal Golden Visa program has a processing time of 12-18 months due to its increasing popularity.

    Do I need to invest in order to qualify for Portuguese Residency?

    Not necessarily no, there are many types of residency programs in Portugal outside of the highly publicised Golden Visa program.

    Retirees and other passive income earners can apply for residency in Portugal via the D7 Visa by proving their passive income while remote workers can apply for the D8 Digital Nomad Visa by showing their fixed monthly earnings. Under both these programs no investment is required, so it depends on the individual and their eligibility for such programs.

    Do I need to live in Portugal to maintain residency?

    Portugal Golden Visa investors are not required to live in the country to maintain residency. They are required to spend just 7 days per year in Portugal.

    Portuguese resident applicants under the following residency programs must spend 8 months per year in Portugal (or 6 months per year consecutively) to maintain residency:

    • Portugal D2 Visa
    • Portugal D7 Visa
    • Portugal D8 Visa

    For the Portugal HQA Visa, it is generally expected that investors will live in the country. However in certain cases an exemption of this rule can be applied.

    Which Portugal residency program is right for me?

    We listen to our clients very carefully to understand their situations to best evaluate which program is suitable. If you wish to discover which program is best suited to your needs then please reach out to us and book an initial consultation.

    When can I apply for Citizenship in Portugal?

    Residents of Portugal can apply for citizenship after 5 years of residency. An A2 level of Portuguese proficiency is also required.

    Can I include my family members on my application as dependents?

    Under family reunification law, applicants can include the following family members on their residency applications in Portugal:

    -The spouse of the main applicant.

    -All legal children under the age of 18.

    -Dependent children under the age of 26. These children must be both unmarried and enrolled in full-time education in order to qualify.

    -Parents of the main applicant and spouse over 66 years of age.

    -Dependent parents over aged 55 or over.

    -Siblings of the main applicant under the age of 18 years of age when the main applicant is legally responsible for them.
