Living In Portugal — An Overview

Portugal, one of Europe’s oldest countries, boasts an exceptional reputation and ranks high on the Human Development Index. As a member of the EU and Europe’s Schengen Area, Portugal uses the Euro as its currency and is considered one of the world’s most peaceful and globalised nations. While Portuguese is the official language, English is widely spoken, particularly by the younger generations and in tourist regions.


Despite Portugal’s shift towards business-oriented services, the manufacturing sector still accounts for one-third of its economy. Additionally, Portugal is the world’s largest supplier of cork and has a thriving tourism industry. To counteract its lack of hydrocarbon energy resources, the country is focused on renewable energy, including hydro, wind, and solar power. Over 40% of the energy generated in Portugal is from renewable sources, including the world’s most efficient wind tower.


With a population of approximately 10.3 million, Portugal boasts a rich history, lively culture, mild climate, exceptional cuisine, stunning beaches, and picturesque countryside. For non-EU citizens looking to obtain a residence permit based on investment, Portugal has streamlined legislation that offers three qualifying routes. Successful applicants must maintain their residence status for a minimum of five years before being eligible to apply for Portuguese citizenship.
