The Portuguese Golden Visa Program, established as a five-year residency by investment scheme, serves as a gateway to European Union residency and citizenship. Since its inception, it has granted over 12,718 ARIs, totaling more than €7.3 billion in investments, attracting significant interest from investors globally. However, as of October 2023, the Real Estate investment route is no longer available, making way for the Investment Funds Route, a path of investment that has grown exponentially from 2020.

Eligible funds offer a variety of investment opportunities, ranging from sustainable agriculture projects regenerating farmland, to investments in international schools, technology, healthcare, renewable energy, agri-business, hospitality, Research & Development, among others.

Compared to other investment routes for the Portuguese Golden Visa programs, the Investment fund option allows for potentially lucrative returns in a passive investment structure
