Residence Permits in Portugal

In the last few years, according to data from the Foreigners and Borders Service (SEF), Portugal has experienced an unprecedented period of mobility, marked not only by globalization, which generates migrations of an economic , labor and educational nature, but also, due to the National Immigration and Asylum Policy, that promotes a global approach, integrated and balanced, increasingly interconnected with the attraction of foreign investment.

The analysis of the evolution of the foreign population in Portugal implies the consideration of several aspects, namely, the legislative evolution that occurred in the last years and the fact that Portugal is a country of “mixed regime” of migrations, being both receiver and emitter of migrants, historical and cultural relations with other countries, the impacts of operationalizing immigration policies, as well as the economic and social context of Portugal and the countries of origin of immigrants.

The structure of the ten most representative nationalities has been changing due to Portuguese internal policies and also due to external factors. Brazilian nationality remains the main resident foreign community representing more than a fifth of the total foreign population resident in Portugal.

On the other hand, the rise of positions in the structure of the most representative nationalities by European citizens, seems to confirm the particular impact of the factors like, the perception of Portugal as a safe country, as well as the tax advantages arising from the regime for non-habitual residents. In the particular case of the United Kingdom, the Brexit effect is also an important variable to consider.

The special residence permit regime for investment activity, usually designated by ARI or Golden Visa, that allows to obtain a temporary residence permit with exemption from residence visa, by doing an investment in Portuguese territory, has also shown the growing interest in Portugal for economic purposes, by countries like China, Turkey, South Africa, Russia, India, Vietnam and the U.S..
