What about taxes?
The Golden Visa program does not bring any tax responsibility to you if you spend less than 183 days per year. Only if you spend more than 183 days per year, you will be considered a tax resident in Portugal.

Portugal offers favourable tax regime through the non-habitual residency (NHR) program. This offers exemptions from income tax for the first 10 years of residence.

Do I need to speak Portuguese?

There is no language requirement to obtain residency.

Speaking the local language creates a more immersive experience, however, the Portuguese are used to hosting foreigners, and English is widely spoken.

Should you wish to proceed with applying for citizenship after 5 years, a language test is required to show your knowledge is at A2 level of the European language framework. A2 corresponds to basic conversational command of the Portuguese language and there are many resources and classes available to help you prepare both in person and online.

Children under the age of 10 are exempt from doing the language test.

How long does it take to receive the residence permit?

After submission of all necessary documents, the process is expected to take up to 90 days. To have the cards in hand in your home country it is expected to take less than 150 days.
