  • Dependent adults – €3,990 a year each (50% of the minimum wage).

  • Dependent children – €2,394 a year per child (30% of the minimum wage).

The minimum amount recommended by our experts :

  • The lead applicant – €10,000 to 12,000 a year.

  • Dependent adults – €5,000 a year each.

  • Dependent children – €2,500 a year each.


How long does the application process take?

The two parts are processed separately. In total, it can take up to four months to complete the process. This time excludes the gap between the issue of your visa and your move to Portugal for the SEF meeting.

  • The residence permit is issued for two years.

  • After that, you can extend for three years.
