WHY CHOOSE THE HQA VISA IN 2022…
Launched in 2019, the HQA Visa Program is an excellent option for foreign startup founders and established overseas businesses seeking to establish a low-hassle footprint in Portugal:
TOTAL FLEXIBILITY: Offering fully flexible minimum stay requirements and requiring very little hands-on involvement by founders, it meets the needs of busy foreign executives looking for a low-engagement, fast Portuguese residency solution. What’s more, the program also offers the same flexible residency requirements for spouses and dependent minor children, making the HQA Visa an excellent EU Plan B.
LOWER PRICE: And priced at only €175,000 ALL-IN, the HQA Visa’s total capital layout is 50% lower than that of a Golden Visa Fund Investment, and up to 70% cheaper than a property based Golden Visa (priced from €350,000 to €350,000 excluding municipal taxes, transfer duties, management fees and eventual exit costs).
SUPERIOR YIELD: Opting for the HQA Visa Program over a Golden Visa means having an a minimum of €175,000 in remaining capital to invest in your own business, equities, crypto or other opportunities with a potential yield of more than 3.5% (gross), which is the maximum ROI you’d typically be looking at with a conventional fund or real estate based Golden Visa (and that’s outside of pandemic times).
