Our Approach

GVP Life Limited’s founders are personally invested in Portuguese property. GVP Life Limited work exclusively with developers in order to make sure our clients get first choice of the hottest new property projects in Portugal without paying sales commissions and that the properties qualify immediately for Golden Visa with no hidden obstacles or delays. The prices you get quoted are exactly the same prices quoted to Portuguese in the domestic market the only difference is that GVP Life get preferential access for our clients before a general release.

Our commitment to clients is to listen to their objectives. Whether that objective is to invest in a rental property, move their family or relocate to Portugal full-time, we can refer you to the correct property partner that have developments and options in locations throughout the country with proven track record of capital gains and, in some cases guaranteed, rental yields.

The decision to invest in Portuguese property to obtain a Residency Permit is of vital importance, since the investment must be held for the 5 years it takes to obtain Permanent Residency. As a specialised consultancy working to help clients obtain a successful Portuguese Golden Visa, we have selected property partners in Portugal who can offer qualifying investments, and which offer the potential to make the most of the exciting Portuguese property market by offering huge potential on capital growth and rental yields over the duration of the 5-year period.

Most importantly, all projects are pre-vetted by our legal team for Golden Visa eligibility. This enables our clients to have peace of mind that the investment is absolutely suited to their needs.

Through our unique approach, we check that investment opportunities we identify fit the following criteria:

  • Qualify as immediate and clear Golden Visa Investments
  • Are priced accurately and properties our founders would personally invest into
  • Exist in strong rental markets
  • Vetted for Golden Visa Eligibility by our lawyers
  • Personally visited by GVP Life Limited

Moreover, we and our property partners do not charge any sales commission. The only costs on top of the price of the property are mandatory government taxes and levies, which are standard with any purchase.

Our property partners also provide full rental management services, ensuring that the properties you buy are occupied by high-quality tenants, giving you the peace of mind that you are getting the returns you expect.

Via the exclusive law partner we work with and vetted property partners we refer you to, we offer an end-to-end, stress-free solution which ensures smooth completion of purchases and a seamless transition to the next stage of the residency application process provided you fit the criteria on a record of no serious criminal conviction.

As part of our service once you are in the location of your preferred investment, our property partners also offer to chauffeur clients to any of our partners’ exclusive property developments throughout the country. And upon deciding on the property you want to purchase you are given help to complete the mandatory processes with our legal partner such as opening a bank account, doing the necessary due diligence with checks and balances in any sales contract, registering correctly, and later registering with the correct government authorities.


We have the possibility to the speed up the process through Macau where documents can be submitted to the Portuguese Consulate or reservation fees paid directly to our property partners in Portugal, and also bank accounts opened in Macau by a Portuguese bank. This simplifies the process of buying property once in Portugal, and often the processing time of a Golden Visa. Many of the key stages of buying property for a Golden Visa can be done by power of attorney through our partner law firm CCA.
