Since 2012 Portugal has allowed non-community citizens from third countries not belonging to the European Union or the European Economic Area to enter and remain in Portugal if they are going to engage in investment activities in the country.
Investment in the property sector is one of the activities that provide access to RPI status. It can be used as an individual or via a company incorporated in Portugal, or in another EU state, with a permanent establishment in Portugal.
More about Tax Benefits
In 2009, the Portuguese government set up a tax scheme for non-habitual residents (NHR). The idea was to attract non-resident professionals engaged in high value-added activities or receiving income from intellectual or industrial property rights or know-how, as well as beneficiaries of pensions obtained abroad. The scheme is valid for 10 consecutive years and cannot be extended.
