Regions Available for the 280k Golden Visa Program

The 2022 Portugal Golden Visa changes mean that there are some previously popular locations that are no longer eligible for a 280k property investment. However, this just means that you’ll benefit from the growing economy of the country’s other regions. 

From the historic Beria Alta where you’ll discover incredible views of the river Dão, to the beautiful beaches of the Algarve, these 2022 changes are giving Portugal the push it needs to rival its counterparts through investment in NUT111 Regions.

By choosing one Portugal’s low-density locations such as Coimbra, the Algarve, or Faro, you’ll have the opportunity to help develop a stunning location, boost the economy, and most importantly, see a greater return on investment.

About 280k Golden Visa Property Investments

The lifestyle, taxation and business benefits of Portuguese citizenship by investment mean that it’s highly prized by many people around the world who yearn for the flexibility and freedom commensurate with living in one of Europe’s most beautiful and dynamic nations.

And for incoming non-EU/EFTA third party nationals, Portuguese citizenship is itself a gateway to EU citizenship and all the benefits that prized status confers – not the least of which is being able to sponsor your beloved family members to join you in your new base and by extension, having the freedom to live and work right across all 27 member states of the borderless EU.

For many investors the €500k Golden Visa Portugal route is the most straightforward because in some ways its requirements are the least exacting, whereas others prefer the €350,000 Euro reduced cost Golden Visa renovation option. With this option, you’ll buy a property in one of Portugal’s urban rehabilitation areas, which is eligible provided the property value plus the renovation costs add up to at least €350k.

And there’s an even more affordable and accessible Portugal Golden Visa €280k option which offers investment in interior zones known as NUT111 Regions of Portugal which will allow you to gain the same Golden Visa Benefits in Portugal in 2022.

That’s right, certain conditions apply but if the other categories aren’t quite the right fit, you can unlock the same fantastic five-year route to permanent Portuguese residency for €280,000 Golden Visa in Portugal inland regions NUTS111m which is the cheapest Golden Visa in Europe. And due to the lower entry-level, some investors choose to buy several properties under this route as part of a plan to maximise their ROI.

At Property Lisbon, we have a deep and diverse selection of €280k Portugal Golden Visa properties to offer you, along with years of expertise in helping satisfied clients from countries all around the world to successfully navigate this route and start exciting new lives in our outstanding nation.

If the €280,000 Euro Golden Visa route sounds right up your street, you’re in the right place – read on for the lowdown on what it is and how to get it.


Ready For Your €280K Portugal Golden Visa?

How Does the Golden Visa €280,000 Investment Option Work?

The €280k Portugal Golden Visa investment system has a few more requirements than the top-tier €500k option, but with the professional support and guidance we provide, it’s still a very accessible route. In many ways, the requirements are similar to the €350,000 Golden Visa, because this is also classed as a ‘restoration and refurbishment’ citizenship by property investment option and in practical terms, it’s almost a sub-category of that route. Here are the applicable rules:

As stated, if you’ve considered the €350k option previously, you’ll see that this more affordable €280k option has very similar requirements, with the crucial difference that it must be located in a low-density area (and that it’s significantly more affordable). This is because it’s effectively a route introduced to offer a 20% reduction on the €350k option in order to encourage inward investment in specific regions which could benefit from development.

Can You Recommend Professional Support for the €280k Golden Visa Application?

Absolutely – the Portuguese citizenship by investment programme is much more than simply purchasing a property (as important as that already is).

We know this is a life-changing process and since you’re a non-EU/EFTA third party national, chances are that you’re not familiar with the system. So, over the years as we’ve helped many other clients like you achieve their Portuguese property dreams, we’ve also been building up a brilliant contact book of fellow professionals who we can work together with to make the process as calm, cool and collected as possible.

Legal Support for the €280,000 Golden Visa Portugal

Hiring a lawyer is worth the fee because making a mistake with your application can be far costlier – we can recommend experienced, specialist property solicitors who will ensure that you make the right moves at every stage of the process and provide all of the evidence required by authorities.

This means that when your €280k Golden Visa interior regions Portugal is assessed by an official, you’ll be making their job easy because they can cross-check it against the rules without having to search for evidence or make any follow-up enquiries and issue it quickly, with complete confidence. It’s your responsibility to provide the evidence and remember that you’re paying a fee to lodge an application, rather than paying for the visa to be issued, so make that positive decision easy by grabbing all the professional help you can with both hands.

Construction Support for the €280k NUT111 Golden Visa

Naturally, you’ll need to hire a local builder to help with the renovation required for your property and you’ll want a craftsman rather than a cowboy.

Whether this is a property that you and your family are going to live in permanently, or a holiday home where you’ll spend a few weeks a year and then rent out for the remainder, or a commercial property which is a business base for yourself or a tenant, it’s vital that it’s perfectly designed and styled to suit its function.

Therefore, there’s no point wasting cash on a builder who cuts corners and delivers expensive disasters – far better to work with one of our recommended tradesmen who will deliver on time, to budget and with the highest quality that’s humanly achievable.
