Over the last few years, the Portuguese Government has been trying to attract a growing number of startups, highly qualified people, and entrepreneurs. For this reason, it has been creating new types of visas and mechanisms to speed up and facilitate the issuance of residence permits for these entities. Some examples are the Tech Visa, Startup Visa, and D2 Visa:

Tech Visa – Company certification program, which aims to attract highly qualified professionals from foreign countries to the European Union to work in Portugal through the granting of visas and residence permits.

Startup Visa – This is a new type of residence visa for foreign entrepreneurs interested in starting an innovative company in the country.

D2 Visa – To attract foreign entrepreneurs to the country, Portuguese law provides for a special visa for citizens wishing to undertake an investment activity in Portugal.
