The Golden Visa vs Family Reunion Visa D6

The Golden Visa has a family reunion component that is slightly different than the traditional Family Reunion visa.

The traditional Family Reunion visa only allows dependent children, a spouse, and dependent grandparent to relocate to Portugal with you. If someone receives the Golden Visa, their Family Reunion visa extends to more family members.

This is because Golden Visa applicants are making a significant investment into the Portuguese economy. The only requirement for family members coming to Portugal under a Golden Visa is that any children must be under 18 or dependent on you throughout the 5-year application window.
