Our company's founders have been through the process of obtaining residency by purchasing property in Portugal. In the process they have encountered unscrupulous law firms, property agents who try to sell unfinished developments and try to charge sales commissions to the buyer or who recommend investments which do not fit investors’ objectives, as well as tax advisers who try to charge extortionate fees for simple procedures and filling out forms.
They have faced, and overcome, the many problems that one can face when investing and moving to a new country and this experience forms the foundation of our service to our clients.
GVP Life Limited has put together the finest team to help expatriates from all over the Globe make successful and profitable residency-by-investment decisions into Portugal, the most exciting EU destination for those seeking primary or second citizenship.
At GVP Life Limited, we understand that a decision to acquire second citizenship is not about the individual but is about the wider family. This is yet another reason why we have solely focused on the Portugal Golden Visa Scheme.
With the Portugal Golden Visa Scheme, a primary applicant is also able to obtain residency permits for their spouse, children and dependant close relatives, including in-laws - a perfect safety net.
