Portugal simplified the conditions for obtaining citizenship
Amendments to the Citizenship Act of Portugal of July 5, 2018 simplified the requirements for obtaining Portuguese citizenship.
New rules stipulate that citizenship can be granted to all residents who have spent 5 years (previously 6) in the country. These changes will go into effect upon amendment of the legislation.
Participants of the program, along with other applicants for naturalization in Portugal, will be able to apply for citizenship 5 years after having obtained the Residence Permit. Currently, the minimum amount of investment for obtaining a residence permit is EUR 250,000.
