Do you need to apostille your documents for Portugal in order to obtain the Golden Visa?
The Portugal Golden Visa program is a residency by investment scheme designed for non-EU citizens. Portugal launched the program in October 2012. The main objective was to attract international capital into the country, as it was much in need after the 2008 economic crisis. The Portugal Golden Visa program provides the opportunity to become a permanent resident or a citizen in Portugal in only five years.
Portugal is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention and any official document destined for this country requires an apostille from the Secretary of State’s office. We can process documents issued from all 50 U.S. states, District of Columbia, and the U.S. Federal Government for the country of Portugal.
The purpose of the Hague Apostille Convention is to create a simplified method of “authenticating” documents for universal recognition. An apostille certifies the official who signed your documents (Example: State official, County Clerk, Notary Public, Superior Court, FBI, U.S. Federal District Court, etc…)
