My lawyer recommended the same (keep my GV investment and address until citizenship is approved), although it doesn’t seem to be a clear cut requirement.
Hi Susan, my lawyer said passing the Portuguese A2 test and then 7 days a year visit is good enough to apply for a citizenship after 5 years of GV. Is there more that one has to do as a pre- requisite?
suggests that the clock for citizenship begins ticking from pre approval rather than the receipt of the residency card. Has anyone else heard that also?
