Immigration

Self-employed and Liberal Professionals

Who this is for:

This is aimed at self-employed workers, freelance professionals, service providers or sole proprietors who carry out their activity in the context of a service provision relationship.

Requirements:

To obtain this visa, also known as a D2, the applicant must, among other requirements, demonstrate that they have started their activity with the tax and social security authorities as a natural person or sole proprietor.

Process

Step 1 – Applying for a visa

The residence visa must be applied for at the Portuguese Consulate in the country of residence.

The visa issued entitles the holder to 2 entries into Portugal and is valid for 120 days, during which time the holder must travel to Portugal.

Note: it is possible to apply for a residence permit directly in Portugal, by submitting an expression of interest, if the applicant has entered the country legally.

Step 2 – Applying for a residence permit

After entering Portugal, the applicant will have to attend an appointment with AIMA (Agency for Migration Integration and Asylum) to provide updated information and collect biometric data (photograph, fingerprints and signature).

Step 3 – Receiving the residence card

After the appointment, the residence card will be sent to the applicant’s registered address in Portugal.

The residence card is valid for 2 years. At the end of these 2 years, it can be renewed for a further 3 years. At the end of the 5 years, you can choose to apply for a permanent residence permit or Portuguese nationality.
