How to get Portugal Passport?

Portuguese passport

After the fifth year of having residency in Portugal, you can apply for permanent residency or citizenship. If you don’t want to apply for either, you can continue renewing your Golden Visa every three years.

Once you become a Portuguese citizen, you can live and work anywhere in the European Union and get the world’s 4th best passport. That means you can live in Germany or in the Netherlands if you prefer.

Portugal allows dual nationality. So you can keep your original citizenship. However, you must check that your country also permits dual citizenship.
