By today 221220 resolution of the Council of Minister, the changes to Golden Visa will advance, gradually determining the decrease in their application in the regions of Lisbon, Porto or Algarve. This resolution creates a transitional regime that will come into force on July 1, 2021 and will operate until 2022, in which “the value of the planned investments is successively increased and the possibility of its application to metropolitan areas will be reduced”. Only Intermunicipal Communities (CIM) of the Interior and Autonomous Regions will become eligible. As a result, the allocation of golden visas will no longer “apply to coastal and metropolitan regions, safeguarding the possibility of renewing residence permits already granted”. No changes were announced for the remaining formats to obtain a Golden Visa, thus assuming that they will not be targeted under this new regime. The final wording of the amendment to the law has not yet been released.
