What is the D7 Visa?

The D7 Visa is an alternative route to obtain Portuguese residence at lower governmental fees, with a quicker approval rate, for those who intend to actually live in Portugal.

The application starts at the Portuguese Consulate of the country where the applicant has his/her habitual residence.

Applicants are entitled to:

  • Live in Portugal.
  • Reunify their family members.
  • Work.
  • Access to public schools and universities.
  • Access to the Portuguese Social Security System, which includes the National Health System.
  • Use the courts of law and access Portuguese laws.
  • Benefit from a special Tax Regime – the Non-Habitual Resident (NHR) tax regime, in which specific sources of income are exempt from taxation.
