If you manage to renew your D7 visa and remain in Portugal as a resident for more than five years, you will be eligible for Portuguese citizenship. Once you have Portuguese citizenship, you will no longer need to apply for, or renew a Portuguese visa

With Portuguese citizenship, you will be a citizen of the European Union which will entitle you to live and work anywhere in the EU.
