PORTUGAL: TESTIMONIAL I

We collected several testimonies from clients who chose Portugal as a destination and our team to accompany them through the process. Below is one of them:

” My wife and I retired and chose Portugal as our destination in order to fully enjoy the amount of free time we now had. We took this decision according to the warm ambiance of Portugal, its low cost of living, its rich culture, its amazing climate and the quality of its medical services. For all these reasons, we bought an apartment in Porto. We were surprised to find out that there was a huge community of French and Germans who were also retired and living there. We are really happy we met all these people with whom we can share great moments. Our life quality is excellent and we are never worried because we have access to medical services that fit our needs. Thanks to the Inimex team who helped us with the apartment purchase and facilitated with the application process for the visa in Portugal. We are enjoying life like never before and we are really happy we took that decision.”

PORTUGAL: TESTIMONIAL II

“While being a mother of two teenagers, I decided to start a new project abroad. I invested in a property in Portugal in order for me to obtain a Portuguese residence and keep it for 5 years. My main goal was to obtain a residence permit in a European country to facilitate trips through Europe. I also wanted to live in Europe and provide many study tracks to my children. With our Portuguese residence permit, my two children could conduct their studies in Switzerland. The process in both Portugal and in Switzerland went very well, thanks to the Inimex team who was present and patient during the entire process. I am glad about this experience and I would suggest it to anybody particularly because of the program flexibility.”
