US citizens: Why do you want a Portuguese GV?

Hello everyone,

I’ve been reading a lot about Portugal’s GV program and am interested in hearing why those you who are US citizens opted to obtain the GV.

Was it:

  • Having another option to live?
  • Legacy for family?
  • Tax purposes?
  • Wanting to live in Portugal and a desire to invest in the country?

I would love to hear your thoughts as I’m contemplating meeting the 2021 deadline.

Thanks for starting this thread. I’m interested for future options, esp. as the political situation in the US remains unstable. I also am just open to different life choices and possibly greater ease in later life both in Portugal and the EU.

Thanks for your thoughts! Having a second country for refuge is a consideration!
