AFTER BREXIT - Should Britain buyers be looking into the Golden Visa?
Sep 9, 2020 Legislation
Portugal’s Golden Visa scheme, which grants Portuguese citizenship to non-EU nationals, will soon be offered to British investors once the transition period of Brexit ends in January 2021. Until now, it hasn’t been clear whether UK residents have been eligible for the Portuguese Golden Visa, officially called the Residence Permit Programme, during the 11-month transition period of Brexit. While the UK officially left the EU at the beginning of the year, the country has remained bound to the EU’s rules, meaning it has still technically been ‘part of the club’. However, this possibility will cease to exist from January 1, 2021, meaning that British nationals should start considering ways to reside in the EU and benefit from border-free travel within the Schengen area.
