Why is it best to immigrate to Portugal and not other EU countries?


Portugal is not only a wonderful Mediterranean resort with mild climatic conditions and a developed tourist infrastructure.

According to the results of the Global Peace Index (world assessment of safe states) in 2020, the country was ranked third among 163 most comfortable places to live with a low crime rate. This suggests that the government is pursuing effective social and economic domestic policies.

The state has a very flexible taxation system - this attracts business emigrants from all over the world.

For investors looking for permanent residence in Portugal, buying a property can be a very profitable investment.

For those planning to live elsewhere, there is an opportunity to successfully sell real estate in five years. After all, its cost is constantly growing, not only in places of mass recreation and on the coast.

Affordable and high-quality medicine has become an undoubted advantage of Portugal. Prices in clinics here are much lower than in Sweden or Austria, and the quality is at a very high level. Many well-known medical organizations operate in the country.
