Times Up - Portuguese Golden Visa is changing permanently


The countdown is on, and the hour to secure your Portugal Golden Visa at the existing rate of 280k EUR is almost up. An imminent law change is set to not only double the investment amount but also alter the current benefits. The sands of time are fast slipping away – don't miss this golden opportunity to secure your EU Passport without physical residency and enjoy tax-free overseas income!

Why Act Immediately?

The current legislative framework provides a rapidly diminishing opportunity to attain a Portugal Golden Visa with incredible benefits. This route offers an EU Passport without any physical residency requirement, no tax on overseas income and capital gains. Beyond the stunning sun-drenched beaches, warm community, and a robust economy, Portugal offers you a lifetime ticket to tax-efficiency and global mobility.

Option 1: Wait and Pay Later

Investors could choose to wait for the new law to come into effect, paying the higher fee of 500k EUR via the Venture Capital (VC) Fund route. Although this involves a greater investment, the revised law promises to bring along new benefits that could further enhance the appeal of Portugal's Golden Visa program.

Option 2: Act Now and Save

The alternative option for investors is to proceed with the GV application right away, at the existing rate of 280k EUR. This presents a significant saving and a very high likelihood of qualifying at this level due to the current legislation.

In an unpredictable scenario where the President approves the new law before your application is submitted, don't fret - we have you covered. You will be offered two further options: a) a full refund or b) the chance to continue your application with Mercan via their Fund, albeit at the increased rate of 500k EUR. This approach ensures that your investment remains secure and flexible, no matter how the legislative landscape changes.
