D7 Visa - Retirement Visa / Passive Income Visa / Digital Nomads Visa

D7 Visa - Retirement Visa / Passive Income Visa / Digital Nomads Visa

The Portuguese government introduced a special type of visa in 2007: the D7 Visa.  It is also known as Retirement Visa or Passive Income Visa.

This residence visa allows any non-EU/EEA/Swiss citizen who has a reasonable net regular passive income to apply for residency in Portugal. This income can be from pensions, transferable equity, real estate, intellectual property, or financial investment.

The minimum required value to be eligible for this visa is a yearly income of €8,460, plus 50 percent of this amount for the spouse and 30 percent for each dependent child. This is regardless of the person’s country of origin.

This visa allows you and your family legal residence in Portugal. It is intended to attract retirees and those living on passive income to reside in Portugal in an effort to boost the economy. Additionally, holders of this visa are not precluded from having a professional activity in Portugal.

You can apply for the D7 visa at the Portuguese consulate through a series of residence applications. After you have your visa, your immediate family also becomes entitled to a residence permit there under the family reunification regulations.

Additionally, this visa allows you to travel through the Schengen zone Visa-Free as it is registered with the Schengen Information system.
