Since the Portuguese Golden Visa Program has been introduced in 2012, Property Lisbon has already assisted investors from over sixty countries throughout the process of investment in Portuguese property and the legal process of obtaining the Golden Visa through investment.
Our experience in these processes has enabled us to compile the list of some of the most major aspects of this program that have consistently come as top reasons to make such an investment.
Some of these reasons may be more obvious than others, but we are confident that once the investors understand all the benefits of the Golden Visa program and of obtaining citizenship through investment, they will certainly reassess their priorities.
In this article we will discuss education for children and ease of travel as another two of the major reasons to invest in Portuguese Golden Visa program.

Education for Children
Once the investor and their family have established permanent residency in Portugal by living full time in the country, their children automatically become eligible to receive education in any of the Poruguese state and privately owned schools and institutions alike.
Furthermore, as they become citizens of Europe, they are also being granted access to all EU universities and education and these prestigious institutions becomes available to them at European and not internatonal rates which will, in both short and long term, save them and their family a substantial ammount of money.
It is also worth mentioning that in Portugal, as well as in our neighboring country – Spain, university education and tuition fees are some of the lowest in Europe, while still uphodling the high European standard of education that they provide.
Ease of Travel
The Portuguese Golden Visa program provides the investor with a secondary passport which enables them visa free travel all througout the European Shcengen visa zone. The investor and their family, upon completing this program, need not apply and go through the arduous process of obtaining travel visas for Europe ever again, should they ever wish to visit any of the EU countries.
