Live on a Lush Tropical Island

Live on a Lush Tropical Island



Did you know that the country of Portugal includes two sunny, tropical islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean? It’s true!

The Azores and the island of Madeira are both officially considered Autonomous Regions of Portugal. That means they are included under the country’s generous and inviting Golden Visa program. In other words, you can relocate to either island and enjoy a lavish lifestyle on a tropical island while earning European permanent residency or even citizenship under the government program.

Island Living

The Azores are more distant from the European continent, located about 1,400 miles west of Lisbon. Madeira is slightly closer, located about 434 off the coast of the African nation of Morocco and about 850 miles southwest of the Portugal mainland.

Both are in a region known as Micronesia, which enjoys warm sunshine and tropical weather. They are popular vacation destinations among European residents though they aren’t as well known outside of the continent. Some people consider Madeira to be Europe’s version of Hawaii.

Starting this year, Portugal scaled back the number of places where participants in the Golden Visa could by residential property through the program. The most popular places — the cities of Lisbon and Porto and the suncoast region called The Algarve — were taken off the board. But Maderia and The Azores are still eligible.
