PORTUGAL: IMMIGRATION FOR FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT INDIVIDUAL

PORTUGAL: OUR MISSION

Portugal has attracted a vast number of newcomers over the last years because of its pleasing weather, unique culture, advanced economy and high living standards. The country is also highly placed in rankings of moral freedom, peacefulness, democracy and prosperity and is part of the United Nations, the European Union and the Schengen Area.

The D7 visa in Portugal is suitable for retirees and passive income holders. In order to qualify under this status, the applicant must justify a regular annual income from pension, rental revenue, dividends, etc. This way, retirees or holders of their own income can reside in Portugal.

Additionally, as a new resident of Portugal, some applicants may be eligible to benefit from a special tax status under “non-habitual resident” (NHR) tax regime, which will allows a 10-year tax exemption on most non-Portugal-sourced types of income.

The Inimex team has already accompanied many people through their journey to a Portuguese residence. Indeed, our experts have plenty of knowledge and experience in immigration in Portugal. Our collaborators are lawyers, brokers, translators, real estate specialists, tax advisors and so on. They will do everything in their capacity to make the process as easy as possible for you.
