StartUP Visa

Are you an entrepreneur who intends to develop your startup in Portugal, even though you might not have started your business yet?

Have you already launched a startup in your country but want to set it up in Portugal?

Are you from outside the European Economic Area & Switzerland?


If so, you’re eligible to apply for the StartUP Visa!

StartUP Visa is a residence visa for non-EU-Schenghen startup founders who want to be part of one of the fastest developing startup communities in Europe.

The process is managed by IAPMEI and involves the National Network of Incubators spread out throughout the whole territory which ensures your business will kick off next to a community of entrepreneurs already hacking in the ecosystem and acquainted with all the in’s and out’s of the Portuguese and European markets.

The Healthcare City is one of the certified incubators that will host StartUP Visa holders.
