The Portuguese government recently introduced a visa for digital nomads and location-independent entrepreneurs. If you're looking for a great place to live that offers a low cost of living, great weather and exceptional travel opportunities, Portugal is an ideal choice. Here we present a detailed guide to living legally in Portugal as a digital nomad, freelancer or remote employee.

digital nomad visa portugal

People who earn a monthly salary of 2,820 euros or more are eligible as of October 30 for the new digital nomad visa in Portugal. The website dedicated to this visa program is organized into two distinct categories.

Portugal has recently launched a specific visa program for digital nomads, entrepreneurs, freelancers and remote workers, in alignment with other European countries. The digital nomad visa, also known as the entrepreneur visa, is the most suitable solution for people with an income that is independent of their workplace.

The Digital Nomad Visa allows two entries and an initial period of stay of four months in Portugal, provided the applicant does not qualify for a regular 90-day tourist visa. After this period, the Digital Nomad Visa also offers the possibility of obtaining a two-year residence permit. Once this period is over, the holder can renew the visa for an additional three years, and then apply for a permanent residence permit after a period of five years.

If you plan to live in Portugal for the medium to long term, the digital nomad visa is an option to consider.
