Carefree Visa Program

Portugal’s high standard of living has made it one of the migration destinations for people all over the world. There are numerous current visa options available for people to move to Portugal and live there, even with their complete family.  But obtaining a visa in Portugal is not a simple procedure. 

  • There are many steps to take before you can ultimately settle in Portugal, and the Portuguese paperwork can be quite complicated.
  • Due to a lack of time, many applicants are unable to fulfill their dreams of moving to Portugal and seeking a new home.
  • There are numerous options available for solitary steps, but it can be challenging to determine what is necessary and how much it will cost.

With the goal of making the process of applying for a visa to Portugal as easy, successful, and hassle-free as possible, Pearls of Portugal has created a special visa program in cooperation with legal partners that have been in the market for many years.

What distinguishes the program?

  • In order to effectively apply for your visa as well as relocate to and establish yourself in Portugal, you will work with one key account throughout the entire process.
  • The program offers all the services required for obtaining a visa, locating a new home in Portugal, establishing your life there, or requesting NHR tax benefits.
  • Most importantly, because there is only one set price for all the services required throughout the entire process, you will have price security.
