Golden Visa Centrale Brings Portugal's Golden Visa To Filipinos

Golden Visa Centrale’s upcoming June roadshow will provide exciting opportunities for Filipinos to obtain residency and citizenship in Europe through Portugal’s coveted Golden Visa. 

Nowadays, affluent individuals are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of a Plan B. A person’s passport determines how easily one moves around the world, including where they work, study, and reside in. Limiting oneself to a single passport presents a number of limitations and geopolitical risks in periods of increasing instability, a fact that holds true everywhere.

As such, more and more of the ultra-rich from Asia and the United States—including wealthy Filipino families—are building their passport portfolios by applying for multiple citizenships. According to the Golden Visa Centrale (GVC)—a leading international property marketing consultancy specializing in residency-by-investment—this is a great way of hedging their financial and geopolitical risk, as well securing their mobility and lifestyle standards globally.

Citizens of wealthy Western nations often have an advantage in these cases: like Portuguese citizens, who have access to 175 countries visa free. In fact, reasonable application requirements and a slew of benefits are what make Portugal’s Golden Visa the best in the world.

This is why GVC is inviting a select group of Filipinos to attend its upcoming roadshow from June 25 to 26, 2024. During the two-day event, industry experts will walk attendees through securing residency or citizenship in beautiful Portugal.

Vicky Luis (Co-founder, and President of GVC), with her partners Arish Capital Partners and lawyers Pinto Ribeiro, will be presenting the roadshow with the aim of helping Filipinos make their European residency dreams a reality through exciting and exclusive opportunities.

As GVC CEO Vicky Luis explains, Portugal’s Golden Visa is “worth the wait” despite it not having the fastest process (mainly due to the high volume of applications), as it gives its holders the same rights in Portugal that any Portuguese citizen has (excluding voting).

Why Portugal?

Given the country’s beauty and overall quality of life, Portugal’s visa program is among the most popular. It comes with enticing privileges such as being able to live, work, and study in the country, as well as apply for citizenship after five years as a legal resident (with a minimum stay requirement of only seven days a year). This makes it the only Golden Visa program in the continent that allows holders to acquire a powerful European passport without relocating.

Another advantage of the visa is the reunification of up to three generations of family members, including same-sex couples, who all have the right to access healthcare and visa-free travel within the 29 Schengen countries (including Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and the Netherlands, to name a few).

Having access to Portugal’s universal health care system is a key benefit of the program. The country ranked 22nd in the 2022 World Index of Healthcare Innovation, and is one of the top performers in overall Quality coming in at ninth place. The country’s medical system also ranked 13th in patient-centered care and third in infrastructure, all of which are indicators of a high-quality health system that families can truly rely on.

Then there’s the country’s ranking on the Global Peace Index in Europe, placing seventh with its peaceful society, which the picturesque scenery of the Iberian Peninsula only amplifies. With this in mind, it comes as no surprise that the program has raised over €7.5 billion since its launch in 2012, bringing in €125 million in 2023 alone. 

Residency by Investment Made Easy

Applying for a Golden Visa might seem like a daunting project even to seasoned professionals, but GVC continues to elucidate the process and bring it closer to Filipinos who dream of widening their horizons. 

Since its establishment in 2019, GVC has successfully processed and facilitated hundreds of golden visa applications across various European countries and the United States, helping more than 200 families secure the coveted visa. Together with Arish Capital Partners—a specialist real estate developer and investor on residency and investment programs—it offers Filipinos a great opportunity to get their Portuguese Golden Visa with ease and plenty of added benefits.

For a €500,000 investment in a private equity fund backed by a prime real estate asset in Lisbon’s central business district, Filipinos will gain the right to live, work, and study in one of the world’s most captivating European countries. As part of the June 25 to 26 roadshow, applicants can receive up to €200,000 of incentives for booking early, which essentially brings the investment down to €300,000—a perk that’s not to be missed. 

Golden Visa Centrale’s June roadshow will take place on June 25, 2024, 5:30 PM, at the Rizal Room of Manila House in Bonifacio Global City; and June 26, 2024, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the Shangri-La The Fort’s Horizon Club Lounge. Register at
