OECD acknowledges “stricter criteria” for Portugal’s golden visa applicants

Portugal has introduced stricter criteria for obtaining so-called “golden visas”, but limit amounts for real estate investment have remained unchanged, while they have been increased for other areas of investment, the OECD says in its latest report on migration. Migration Outlook 2022 acknowledges that Portugal has had a “continuous commitment” to promote “safe, orderly and regular” migration, and says that a new version of the National Implementation Plan of the Global Compact for Migration is being prepared, which will take into account “best practices, but also current challenges”.
