Portugal’s D7 Visa

The D7 Retirement Visa is the perfect option for foreigners that dream
of settling in Portugal and can sustain themselves through passive income.

Start living the life you always wanted by only demonstrating a steady
income of 705€ per month!

Unlock a more fulfilling life in
Portugal through the D7 Visa

In the past couple of years, non-EU citizens have turned to Portugal in search of the perfect place for a dreamy European retirement. With its relatively low cost of living, beautiful sunny weather and landscape, this country certainly offers any retiree the life they want.

Why is the Passive Income Visa one of the most popular options for residency in Portugal?

The Retirement Visa also known as the Passive Income Residency Visa, is valid for two types of people, those who are retirees and those who can sustain themselves and their families through passive income streams, like investments, real estate rentals, personal property and others.

Successful applicants and their families enjoy the right to reside in Portugal and other benefits such as:

  • Access to the National Health Service.
  • Access to the Portuguese National Education Service and schools.
  • Protection of the law and the Portuguese legal system.
  • An attractive tax regime as you could benefit from the Non-Habitual Residents Tax Regime (NHR).

 

What will life look like once you receive the Passive Income Visa for Portugal?

  • You can bring your family to Portugal too. If you qualify for the visa (see requirements below) your partner and dependent children, parents or minor siblings are eligible for a joint application. Ask us for more details on this.
  • You’ll enjoy the same travel rights as a European citizen. Freedom of movement around the whole Schengen area.
  • You can reside in Portugal initially for up to four months. This four-month period will allow you to get organized and apply for a Residence Permit. The second permit has a two-year validity period and can be renewed continuously for three-year periods.
  • A path to Portuguese citizenship. After five continuous residency years, you can apply for permanent residency. This is the first step toward obtaining Portuguese citizenship.

Laia Fernandez has done an outstanding job with my divorce case and I can not thank you enough for that. She was able to explain to me all the steps very clearly and was very proactive. She really made it simple & transparent. The fact that she is bilingual (English/Spanish) also helped a lot !Thank you once again Laia for everything !

We applied for a 1 year non-lucrative visa, the visa team led by Magdalena Barrueto provided a first-class exceptional service to us. The process of applying for the visa is long and complex, however with the professionalism, expertise, guidance and support of the team we successfully received our visas. The team led us through the process in a clear and concise way, providing important support with the translation of documents. We cannot recommend Carbray highly enough.

Dealing with the bureaucracy in Spain can be intimidating for newcomers. It’s also confusing! This is particularly true when applying for residency. Carbray International did an excellent job shepherding my wife and me through the process. We’re very pleased with their work and recommend their services in the highest possible terms.

Carbray International Law Firm was an absolute god send. I am so delighted with the outcome of my case. My lawyer, Magdalena was very efficient, was able to communicate and be very knowledgeable about the subject matter at hand. Furthermore, Michelle who assisted me on the day was very charismatic and friend to calm my nerves. Both of them made my application process extremely easy. I would not hesitate to recommend Carbray.
