Mátria D2 Visa

Portugal has a prime location, offering the perfect point of entry to access to the European market. As a member of the European Union, Portugal has a strong economy while also enjoying the benefits of the single market and the freedom of movement, goods, and services. Portugal has strong international relations with other countries, such as China, India, Israel, the United States, the United Kingdom, among many others.  

Portugal’s exceptional standing is not just international. The country has a stable political scenario and consistently ranks among the safest in the world. In fact, in 2023, Portugal ranked #7 in the Global Peace Index, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a low-risk environment that can produce high returns on their investments. 

The country has a strong ecological Policy, having one of the cleanest airs in Europe, together with a substantiable environment. Portugal also consistently produces highly skilled workers, a result of the country’s deep focus on education. It is no wonder Portuguese schools and universities are often found on the ranks of the best in Europe.  

This is also reflected in the population’s English-speaking capabilities, further easing the integration of the business in the country and increasing profitability. Combining this with the arguably lower cost of living in Portugal, there is no shortage of reasons why Portugal is the perfect location, offering nothing but advantages to grow and branch out a business. 

The process can be done entirely online. When it is first issued, the D2 visa has a validity of four months. During this period, the investor, or their chosen representative with power of attorney, must schedule an appointment in order to convert it into a Residency Permit. This Permit has a validity of 1 year and must be consecutively renewed up until the fifth-year mark. At that time, the applicant(s) are eligible to become Permanent Residents or Citizens. 

Yes! Portugal offers a series of taxation benefits for those seeking to invest in Portugal, especially in the areas of Lisbon and the Algarve, including an exclusive favourable tax regime with several exemptions. Contact one of our experts today to find out more about this. 

The main business industries in Portugal are tourism, startups, textiles, cork, auto-parts manufacturing, winemaking, oil production, renewable energies, among many others. Our experts can properly advise you on which sector to pursue.
