Portugal temporary stay visa, whilst waiting for golden visa?

Like quite a few folks on this forum, we’ve applied for GV, but stuck in limbo, with no idea how long SEF is going to take for any of the steps. Could be 3 months, or 18. But we’d like to move to PT asap.

Does anyone have any experience/knowledge about the “temporary stay” visa, and if its even worth thinking about trying to get one of those, whilst we wait for the GV visa to come through?

Thanks in advance!

Why go for the golden Visa instead of d7 if you want to live there?

Not sure if definitely want to live there full time all year round for all 5 years…

Very reasonable, just asking to make sure you considered it and get some more info for more knowledgeable people to chime in

Thanks Garret.
