The 2022 changes to the Golden Visa program give you the chance to consider investment opportunities may not have previously crossed your mind. Even if the new rules have waylaid your initial investment ambitions, there are still plenty of opportunities out there that can be just as beneficial as a simple residential apartment in Lisbon – in fact, having an investment property that you can rent out is even better!

Who doesn’t want to make a profit while they wait to gain their Portuguese citizenship? 

We’ve curated a range of properties that are eligible for the Golden Visa program, including both commercial and touristic licensed apartments.

A Touristic License is required by any property – such as a serviced apartment, a hotel, or a resort – that is used by tourists. These all make for a fantastic investment opportunity, as millions of tourists visit Portugal every year and they’ll need somewhere to stay. If you’re in the market to invest in a profit-making project, then consider our New Gold Resort of Villas & Apartments in Silves Algarve

Or, if you’re looking for something a little closer to the country’s capital, then enquire about our 3-4 Bedroom Luxurious Houses Just Outside Lisbon City that you may live in but wont give you the Golden Visa. Here, your guests can experience the quiet of the suburbs all with easy access to vibrancy of Lisbon and its incredible attractions.

Regions Available for the 500k Golden Visa Program Investment Properties

Despite what you might have read from other sources, you can still purchase a property in Lisbon and qualify for Portugal’s Golden Visa Program! And this incredible capital city is a fantastic place to embark on your next great investment. We’ve collected a wide range of properties, both commercial and ready for tourists to rent, that are sure see you secure a great ROI.

However, as lavish as Lisbon is, there’s no reason that you should limit your search to this city. One of the huge benefits that came with the 2022 Golden Visa Program changes is that it has shone a light on some of Portugal’s other beautiful locations, as well as new opportunities in locations where residential properties no longer qualify for the programme. 

By choosing to invest in well-established regions like The Algarve, you’ll benefit from an equally lucrative tourist trade. Or you could choose regions such as Porto and the Silver Coast, which are both increasing in popularity among both tourists and investors alike.

Can You Recommend Professional Support For The €500k Golden Visa Application?

We can indeed – although we’re your first port of call when it comes to finding the best €500k Golden Visa properties in Lisbon and beyond and we have considerable experience in the process, we’re not solicitors and always advise clients to secure the services of a legal professional as soon as possible because this ensures that everything proceeds logically, all evidence is sourced and supplied and there are no delays.

Because we recognise the vital importance of having a specialist solicitor at your back, we’ve got a little black book bulging with reliable legal contacts we’ve made over the years, so we’re happy to recommend a trusted pro who will provide peace of mind.

The €500k Golden Visa properties we sell are usually either new or in excellent condition (hence the higher-entry price tag) and, unlike the €350k Golden Visa option, there’s no requirement that they’re slated for renovations. However, should you ever want to make improvements to your property without the citizenship by investment process, we also have brilliant connections with tried and tested builders and we’re happy to pass these on.

The citizenship by investment process is a serious commitment, but by working in tandem with fellow professionals, we can ensure that everything proceeds like clockwork – leaving you free to focus on how to make the most of the amazing advantages that come with Portuguese and EU citizenship.

Are There Any Other Requirements For The €500,000 Portuguese Golden Visa?

There are a few additional conditions but they’re fairly standard and hardly onerous. Similar processes in other nations are long, labyrinthine and more requirements seem to materialise every step of the way.

Which Types Of Property Are Eligible For The €500,000 Portugal Golden Visa?

The property possibilities with the €500k Golden Visa are only limited by your imagination.

For instance, you could purchase a luxury apartment in a bustling urban area which allows you to stroll out into the city streets and enjoy an evening meal with your spouse or catch up with meet family or business contacts over a laid-back lunch.

Alternatively, you might grab a bargain on a villa in the stunning Algarve or Silver Coast, which is large enough for you and your family to live in permanently or to rent out to holidaymakers while you’re elsewhere.

Last but not least, investing in a commercial property which qualifies for the Golden Visa can also be a savvy idea and you can find anything from an office in a well-connected corporate district to a shop that’s in the perfect high footfall location for turning a profit.

    No results for those listing parameters.

    Try different settings or refreshing/changing existing ones.

Which Areas Are Best For Buying A €500,000 Golden Visa Property?

The best location for your €500k Golden Visa Portugal property will depend on your plans and whether you have an eye on reselling eventually.

For example, if you’re investing in your forever home, you might not mind it being in a remote area because selling it on a few years down the line isn’t a priority, whereas choosing a popular location is better if this is a steppingstone to another Portuguese property or an alternative life plan.

Property in Lisbon has all the advantages of living in a capital city (albeit this is quieter and more manageable than most), but Porto is another popular city and Algarve resorts like Faro, Vilamoura, Lagos and Albufeira are stunning.

Find Your €500k Portugal Golden Visa Property



Changes to the rules haven’t dispensed with the 500k Golden Visa real estate option, but there are just more limitations on the types of properties that you can purchase.

However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll be missing out. In fact, we can pair you with the perfect property to not only allow you to qualify for the 500k Golden Visa but find you a property that is primed to make a profit. 

By limiting the types of properties eligible for a Golden Visa, the Portuguese government hope to boost the economy in areas outside of the country’s capital city. Of course, regions such as the Algarve already benefit from a booming tourist trade, whilst the low-density interior regions (like those areas that qualify for the 280k investment) are in need of economic encouragement to help Portugal continue to soar to the top of the popularity heights.

A 500k Golden Visa property is a great investment! 

Changes to the Golden Visa laws mean that there are limits to where you can buy residential properties. However, this means you have the opportunity to get your hands on a commercial or rental property in one of our fantastic, tourist friendly regions. Portugal is a popular location with visitors from all over the world, and its warm climate, beautiful beaches, and historic cities send touristic flocking here all year round. By tapping into this tourist market, you’ll have no problem achieving a great ROI.  

The time between applying for your Golden Visa and gaining your residency in Portugal is five years, so having and investment property that is earning you money while you wait is an excellent idea. Whether you want to purchase an office in Lisbon, or villa at a golf resort in the Algarve, we can help you find the perfect property to help you turn a profit. 

Many of our properties already come with touristic licenses, this is great news for those investors wanting to reduce the time between buying their properties and earning with them. 

However, if you do need to acquire your own touristic license, then there are some requirements you need to ensure the property meets. At minimum, they need to be safe, cleaned regularly, and secure. And as with any industry, if you go above and beyond for your guests, you’ll gain a great reputation, good reviews, and repeat custom that will help to boost your profits. More information the touristic license requirements can be found on our Touristic License Laws page.

Our legal contacts mean we can put you in touch with expert property solicitors to help you with the application process.
