Investing and living in Portugal: the private investor’s guide

Portugal is known around the world for its year-round pleasant climate, its endless Atlantic coastline and welcoming people. Thanks to one of the lowest crime rates in the European Union, a vast network of motorways, a cost of living well below the EU average and the ease with which its people communicate in many different foreign languages, Portugal has become a destination of choice as a place to live or invest.

This guide serves as a "map" for anyone who would like to invest and/or live in Portugal, taking full advantage of the various beneficial legal frameworks that are available. From buying a property to passing it on to your heirs, while benefiting from advantageous tax rules, the Portuguese system is set up to bring unparalleled advantages for anyone who would like to invest in the country.
