The residence visa is intended for foreign citizens who wish to apply for an authorization of residency (the “residence permit”). This visa is valid for 2 entries into Portuguese territory and allows its holder to stay during a period of 4 months; nonetheless it is possible to request an extension of this stay for an additional period of 90 days. 

Residence visas can be used, for instance, to carry out a professional activity under an employment contract or to carry out a professional activity through a services provider agreement, as a self-employed individual or as an entrepreneur (D2 or D7) and for family reunification. 

Residence permits can be temporary or permanent. Usually, the temporary residence permit is valid for a period of 1 year from date of issue of the residency card and is renewable for successive periods of two years. The permanent residence permit has no expiration limit but it must be renewed every 5 years. 

The main categories of residence permits are Professional activity, Golden Visa and Startup Visa. Regardless of the category of residence permit, to be granted a residence permit the applicants must comply with some legal requirements such as valid residence visa, means of subsistence, accommodation, and absence of conviction for a crime with a sentence higher than 1 year.
