Global Mobility and Visas

Global Mobility and Visas

Global mobility has become increasingly important in an internationalized world. Nowadays, families choose the country where they want to work, study or live.

Additionally, the implementation of flexible work policies allow people to perform their job anywhere in the world, irrespective of where the companies they work for are based.

In this context, Portugal maintains several programs to attract foreign citizens who want to live in the country, providing a wide variety of Visas and Residence Permits, which allow holders and families to live and/or work in Portugal.

We highlight the most common Visas and Residence Permits:

  • Own income – D7;
  • Highly qualified professional;
  • Subordinate or independent professional;
  • Entrepreneur immigrant – D2;
  • Study;
  • Remote work (Digital Nomad).
