Quick and smooth approval process for your D7 resident visa to Portugal

Imigrata offers the most comprehensive and transparent visa support package for your future Portuguese residence. While you can prepare and file your own Portuguese visa application, it isn’t recommended for many reasons. Consular and SEF rules change all the time, and if you are not keeping up with news updates daily, you'll likely miss some important details. If you don’t speak Portuguese, you also may face hardship when dealing with local authorities, SEF, setting up appointments, opening a local bank account, getting the NIF number and addressing dozens of other smaller issues.

You will be 100% covered by care of our local team of immigration specialists in Portugal.

They will oversee your visa application procedure from the very first consultation to getting your residence permit in Portugal. You will not deal with the local bureaucracy, won’t need to schedule local appointments, file local applications, and have every step of your visa process professionally supervised. We take the stress and confusion out of the application process.

Final check — do you qualify for a D7 visa?

Let's run through visa requirements one more time!

Remember: the key factor here is your passive income or your remote income and future contracts. However, even if you cannot provide proof of the exact amount needed (min. €760/month) over time, Portuguese authorities may let you "mix and match" your passive income with your savings. If you're unsure whether you qualify, shoot us an email and we'll advise!

What our D7 visa clients think about their experience
  • Sarah Baskin
    Project manager from Austin, Texas
    We had our whole process coordinated by Imigrata attorneys from Lisbon. Every document was checked by them before it was submitted to the Consulate, and all local appointments in Portugal set up by the Lisbon team as well. I read that it's nearly impossible to get through to SEF on the phone. Overall, it was a great experience and a very smooth ride.
  • Samuel Wilkerson, Jr.
    IT freelancer from Halifax, Canada
    I initially tried to do everything on my own, but quickly found myself wasting several hours daily in search of information online. There was also an issue with getting my NIF number and opening a bank account — and that's hassle worth about 500 EUR. Imigrata lawyers in Lisbon had all these formalities included in the package, which was really nice. I had my approval from the Consulate within a month, and have a SEF appointment scheduled already. So far, all is good, thanks!
  • Maxim Volkonsky
    Startup founder from St. Petersburg, Russia
    You guys helped me to schedule my appointment at a local Portuguese consulate, which was great since I didn't have much luck with them. I had lots of questions regarding combining my savings and passive income that I bothered Imigrata team with and received a very patient service every time. Thanks again, I"m happily in Portugal now :)
