Portugal HQA Residency Visa

The HQA Visa program, which was originally introduced in June 2019 as the Portugal Angel Visa, leverages article 61 of existing Portuguese legislation designed to attract highly qualified professionals to stimulate R&D in Portugal. The program is a hybrid program of startup programs and investment programs and delivers immediate economic benefits while strengthening the country’s capacity to launch innovative transnational startups. 

Accomplished international professionals are selected to launch their own R&D-driven startup in Portugal, which evolves within a concierge-style incubation program, delivered by program co-creator Empowered Startups through investing 175k Euro.

The HQA residency visa builds partnerships between Portuguese academia, state-backed R&D facilities, industry, and the world’s investors. It leads to innovative ventures in Portugal and brings high economic and initiative entrepreneurial values to Portugal.

There are many professionals across the world looking for residency programs. For many, the promise of a stable future in the EU for their families is enough incentive to invest in a valid residency program. While residency-by-investment schemes typically require real estate purchases, the HQA visa program emphasizes on seeding a business idea in Portugal and presents a much cheaper and attractive alternative.
