Dinis Lucas & Almeida Santos - Boutique Law Firm (DLAS), is a founding member of ASSOCI'ARI, a non-profit associative institution under private law, providing support and cooperation to foreign investors, already residing or intending to reside in Portugal, which incorporation was inspired and motivated by the amendments made to Law no. 29/2012 of 9 August, which constitutes the first amendment to Law no. 23/2007, of 4 July, that regulates the legal entry, stay, exit and removal of foreigners from the national territory, and more specifically, the special system applicable to the granting and renewal of a residence permit, with the waiver of a residency visa, for investment business in the national territory (ARI/ GOLDEN VISA), thereby creating the need for the development of an entity focused on the monitoring of those who intend to invest in our country, in order to assist foreign investors and in order to identify most problems on the permit ARI / GOLDEN VISA, and act near the competent authorities to solve them.

In order to develop these activities, DLAS has a specialized department focused on helping all members who wish to obtain the ARI/ GOLDEN VISA authorization. Our firm is also specialized in the procedures regarding the residence permit and legal assistance in investments.

In view of the special incentive for granting and renewal of residence for those who aim to invest in Portugal (ARI/ GOLDEN VISA), without needing a residence visa, DLAS provides a legal department focused on granting its members an ARI/ GOLDEN VISA authorization and providing legal assistance during all the investment process. Therefore, we provide a special service regarding the ARI issuance and the following procedures.
