October 11, 2023

Last Friday the 6th, the “Mais Habitação” law was finally published. As expected, we have obtained the confirmation that:

i) all applications submitted until the entering into force of the new law will be fully processed, and renewal rights will be fully assured;
ii)  the analysis of all files submitted up until the entering into force of any amends will follow all existing rules and regulations;
iii) no changes will be implemented to the law regarding the adding of family members, which means that family reunification will still be possible after the changes are implemented
iv) no changes were added regarding the access to citizenship and permanent residency were included.

We’d like to point out that from this moment onwards is no longer possible to invest under the real estate categories of the Golden Visa Program. However, the remaining options, including the investment in funds remain available for a successful submission to the program.  The legal framework of the Golden Visa is therefore still in place.
