Immigration & Citizenship

Globalisation has boosted immigration processes at a global level, but the laws and directives of each country are constantly evolving and facing challenges, thus requiring an individualized approach and analysis of each specific process and each individual client, which makes it absolutely essential to have specialized assistance in monitoring the processes of obtaining and renewing visas and residence permits, as well as the processes of acquiring nationality.

Portugal currently offers tax and legal conditions that are particularly favorable and attractive to the establishment of foreigners in our country, which may include tourism, business and investment, education, work, family origins or research, where programmes such as the Non-Resident Status, “Golden Visa”, or D7 Visa, which naturally require advice and assistance from specialized professionals to allow clients to obtain all the necessary legal security that is transversal to their personal characteristics and expectations.

Due to its experience and international presence, Antas da Cunha Ecija is qualified and equipped with the human and material resources necessary to carry out processes of immigration to Portugal, as well as processes to obtain Portuguese citizenship, enjoying wide experience and success in the conclusion of these procedures, offering a specialized and personalized service and follow-up to each of its clients, both during the structuring and determination of the procedure and/or investment to be followed, as well as during its implementation.
