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.
