Portugal offers a D7 passive income visa for independent workers that is valid for one year. It can be renewed twice, each time for an additional two years. The visa costs €83 and there’s also a resident permit fee of €72.

The Digital Nomad Visa or Portugal D7 Visa is a special type of visa that allows foreigners to legally stay in Portugal and live in the country, especially while doing remote work.

In addition to the application form, prospective residents must provide a valid passport, two passport-size photos, valid travel insurance, proof of residence (if applicable), proof of sufficient income or a term of responsibility signed by a Portuguese citizen or resident, proof of owning a business entity (or a contract for providing services), and declaration by an authority that the applicant is qualified to be employed in their sector (if applicable).

There is also a separate residence permit for family reunification purposes.

To apply for a Portuguese visa, you should first find out if you need one. EU citizens are not required to get a visa or permit, but still need to register with local authorities. Non-EU citizens will typically need a visa to enter the country and apply for a temporary residence permit once there.

Most Portuguese visa and permit requirements are relatively straightforward, and you can find all the information you need on official government websites. Just keep in mind that submitting documents in foreign languages requires presenting a notarized Portuguese translation as well.

Visas will cost around 80 EUR (88 USD) in most cases. You will also need to add the costs of residence permits, which are around the same amount. Fees for visas and residence permits in Portugal for investment purposes are by far the costliest, at around 500 and 5,000 EUR (550–5,500 USD), respectively.
