Conditions for Entrepreneurs

If you plan to bring your company to Portugal, the appraisers will take into account the conditions and the potential for the company’s contribution to the country. You must prove the value of your organization through the following elements

Declaration that you have made or intend to make an investment in Portugal, indicating its nature, value and duration

Structured business plan, along with the reasons that led to the creation of the company

Demonstrate financial capacity for the proposed business venture during the period they will live in the country and the viability of the company. Proof of financial resources for scaling will be an advantage

A consolidated curriculum, with a demonstrated network of contacts and experience as a business manager, is an asset

Request Evaluation

The D2 visa application will be assessed taking into account the economic, social, scientific, technological and cultural relevance of the investment. The prospect of job creation in Portugal will also count in its favour.
