The HQA Visa or the “tech visa” in Portugal is intended for high-net-worth-individuals (HNWIs) who are prepared to carry out a “highly qualified activity” in Portugal. This includes professions like doctors, engineers and programmers, for example. Although professionals who advance research and development projects in Portugal through research institutions are given preferential access into the program.
As stated before, individuals coming to Portugal for research purposes at reputable institutions like universities are prioritized. But all qualified, intellectual labor professionals can apply, as long as they have a certificate from an institution of higher education as well as a contract or guarantee with a Portuguese company.
