For most digital nomads, the Portuguese D7 visa is usually the most cost-effective and time-effective option.
The Golden Visa requires significant capital investment in the country through real-estate or investment funds.
Another option is the D2 Startup Visa, however, that can be a very complicated process that can take a lot of time. If you’re a founder of a startup, or plan to be, it could be an option worth considering.
If your spouse is a European citizen, then the Family Reunion visa is an excellent option for digital nomads. It’s easy to get and much more cost-effective than the other options.
Whichever option you choose, it’s definitely worth investing in the NHR status which will give you significant tax advantages and is targeted specifically to digital nomads.
