In order to obtain a residence permit in Portugal, investors buy any property worth €500,000 or a building over 30 years old under renovation for a value of €350,000 or more.

From July 1, 2021, the conditions of the program will change. Investors are more likely to choose real estate in Lisbon, Porto, and resort towns. From 2022, buy housing will be allowed only in the Azores, Madeira, and inland regions. The minimum investment amount will increase on four of the eight options.

The new project is located in the resort city, but it is one of the two areas where the current conditions of the program remain. The price to buy the property will remain the same while construction is in progress.
