Live and Work in Portugal: Markets, Opportunities, and Golden Visa - Zoom

Join Mainstreet's Global Council for a lively discussion on living and working in Portugal!

We will discuss amazing opportunities for yourself and your clients. Portugal is known as western Europe's most affordable retirement haven.

In Portugal they have many funny sayings. One of them is 'Muitos anos a virar frangos' which means 'Many years turning chickens.' When someone says that they have had many years turning chickens, what they mean to say is that they have gained a lot of experience and knowledge throughout their life. We will hear from three experts who have had many years turning chickens and will discuss how you can grow your global business there and all about the country's Golden Visa program. Learn more about the Golden Visa program.
