D7 Visa

The D7 visa is a residence permit for non-EU citizens allowing retirement or living through passive income in a European country.

Visa Process for D7 (Portugal)

A residence visa for passive income holders or retirees who want to live in Portugal. Passive income earners who can apply for this visa can gain special tax status that grants them a 10year income tax break. Non EU/ EEA/Swiss Citizens who intend to relocate to Portugal and have a reasonable net regular passive income can apply for this visa.

The D7 visa does not preclude the holder from having a professional activity in Portugal therefore this is generally the best alternative to Golden Visa for someone who actually intends to live in Portugal over an extended period of time.
