Speaking to journalists at the Palácio Nacional da Ajuda, in Lisbon, after a Council of Ministers exclusively dedicated to housing, António Costa announced that the Government will eliminate the “granting of new golden visas”.

"As for the golden visas already granted, (...) there will only be renewal if they are the owner's own and permanent home and his descendant, or if the property is placed on the rental market for a long time", announced the prime minister.
