D7 Visas

This visa is an option for any foreign citizen, who is a non-European citizen. And intends to live in Portugal as a pensioner, remote worker, entrepreneur, business person or investor- as long as income reaches 705€ per month. (Portuguese minimum wage).

The first part of the process takes place in the country of origin, and the requested documents must be delivered to the Portuguese Embassy.


After approval, you will have a residence visa, which is valid for 4 months, and at that time, you must travel to Portugal to file an application for a one-year residence permit. With this visa, you may leave Portugal for 6 consecutive months or 8 months, if it's interspersed.
