SEF online platform resumes acceptance of new Golden Visa applications

After more than 6 months suspended, it is now again possible to submit new Golden Visa applications in Portugal’s Borders and Immigration Service portal (SEF).

Portuguese lawyers and advisers had been unable to submit new applications for property and fund investments since the 31st of December 2021, as the online Portal where the Golden Visa process is started, had not been updated in accordance with the new legislation in force since the beginning of 2022, which increased the minimum amount for this type of investments.

This deadlock has now come to an end as the portal is again accepting new submissions, a sign that after a halt in the program, the Portuguese Golden Visa should now return to function normally as it did before.
