Immigration Law

We support foreign investors in obtaining Portuguese nationality, non-habitual resident status (RNH), D2, D7 and Golden Visa.

Portugal offers very favorable tax and legal conditions for immigration and foreign investment, in particular due to Portuguese incentive programs - such as the non-habitual resident status (NHR), the D2 visa, D7 visa or the Golden Visa.

In the immigration process, the CNT Avocats team has extensive experience in supporting foreign investors, workers or students who want to emigrate to Portugal - under any of the residence permits, for work purposes (as an investor or retiree). We guarantee advisory services in applications for Residence Permits for Investment Activities (ARI), under the Golden Visa investment program in Portugal.

We also provide legal advice on the Non-Habitual Resident (NHR) Tax Regime - a special tax regime suitable for foreigners wishing to live in Portugal. Our team guarantees the assistance and face-to-face monitoring of clients with the Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) for the organization, review and submission of residence permit applications.

Golden Visas, with a particular focus on real estate investment funds;

D7 Visa and Residence Permits: special processes for retired people and people who want to live in Portugal with their own income;

D2 Visa and Residence Permits: processes for self-employed workers or through company formation;
