2. Proof of tax payment and other obligations.
3. Health insurance issued within the last three months.
4. Evidence of entry in Portugal through legal means.

1. Investment in real estate
2. Generating employment or running a business.
3. A statement recorded by the bank.
Moving to Portugal can be significantly valuable, especially for a citizen of the United States. Since US citizens usually need a visa to travel within foreign countries, moving to Portugal becomes easy. It allows visa-free travel to around 174 countries.
A European passport is amongst the most powerful passports in the world. Whether you want to settle in after retirement, carry out business investments, reside or travel, being a citizen of the European Union is advantageous overall.
