Basically it's a visa with a residence permit for people with passive income it can be retired people getting their pensions it can be some religious workers it can be just people who rent their apartments and that's basically what we did what is a passive income on top of the good rent can be dividends can be royalties pension rent any passive income is stable which means it comes every month it can be different amounts of money but if say you are renting out your apartment you should know that every month, on the first day of the month, you

What do you need for a visa? Well, it's very easy, as always, you know. Passport photos. Requests. Your income. documents and then they do all those things on the Portuguese sign which means you don't need to go and ask Portugal for criminal control they will do it themselves you just need to sign I think two papers and they will do it. for you apart from all these documents we attached a portuguese bank to be able to open an account not me my husband because he has a canadian password i have a russian passport and they said excuse me miss julia we do not open blanks of remotely for russian citizens but for canadians of course he can zoom us and we will open an account for him for his discrimination by hashtag but at the end of the day they open an account for him at least we had something we attached our phone numbers too nif it's like a tax identification number like social security social security number we opened it with the help of some kind of company I think my husband found it online we paid literally like 50 euros and then they opened it everything for us and a letter of introduction but the gentleman they are not asking for it but you are supposed to have it i personally wrote a letter saying that yulia i am applying for residency d7 this e s what i am attaching to my application but they said they want a letter like why portugal why are you guys

Google says it's 8,000 euros per year for the main applicant and half the price, which means like 4k for the dependent, but the best part is that there is no family application here in Portugal, which means you have two options, the first one is the main applicant, whoever it is, let's say my husband applies and then he comes to portugal he does all his paperwork he gets his card and then he invites me to go and you know to do the family reunification but the thing is it's coveted so i can't get no tourist visa to enter europe to enter portugal because portugal is like we only process immigration visas other countries are not granting travel visas either so for us it was not an option but the second thing is that both they can apply as individuals which means your husband or wife show income and you show income we decided to take a chance and apply as two separate people why did i say risk because i didn't have 8k per year of passive income to qualify but we wrote a sponsorship letter saying i'm going to sponsor my wife here is our set account in portugal like that's the money we have and we put like i think around 20k euros so which was more than what they were asking for so for our applications in Canada we paid around 300 Canadian ie 200 euros and they told us the process would continue it took around 30 to 60 days the thing was it was coveted and I told him to my husband who was like they know what they have nothing to do, so it will be super fast because no one travels obviously or it will be super long because you know they have other things to do, so we sent everything by mail the lady at the consulate checked everything the papers he said yes you can bring all the originals so we made an appointment with the consulate we went we brought all the papers a few days my husband gets an email saying hello can you write a letter of explanation like why portugal why are they moving and we said oh oh ok yeah let's write something so I wrote that we chose portugal because it's a beautiful country two hours later so we decided that why not try to live in Europe, we sent this letter, but we didn't get the reply, so we weren't sure if the person received the letter, we decided to mail it in case you know. red tape red tape p ortugal love it so we sent the same letter physically to the consulate no response we said you know what sure let's wait what else can we do? nothing let's wait and in a month we get a call saying hey come over with your passports and get your visas stamped on them and we're like what I want to say okay it took them actually I think 30 days from when we sent the emails to we, we came to the consulate and we got the visas, it was amazing news as i mean i didn't expect to get a visa because again as i mentioned before i had some passive income from youtube but it wasn't enough i wasn't even close to a camera, but i guess they decided we have enough money to support ourselves we also have an apartment so yeah they gave us both visas talking about visas visas are only good for four months and have two entries in case something happens you need to go back to your country, kind of like you know emergencies happen. so you may just like to come to portugal and then apply for your residence permit which is step two they gave us the appointments with montreal immigration from canada again it depends on the country of the city because some people have to figure things out for themselves so that the counselors no i will not give them appointments for people to come to portugal and then they will have to go to sev and make an appointment and then bring back all the documents check your country check the people from your country who applied for the same type of visa, either d72, whatever, because it's always super different, so the second step was to get our residence permits, which is to go to immigration and bring the rest of the documents, so we had an appointment on the 15th of September, we got the visas on the 2nd of June, we were about to go in in July or something, but then Lisbon had introduced all the similar red zone things, all the similar restrictions again, so So we decided that we will stay with friends and family.

We spent some time with them because we like to live in Yes so we came here on August 15th so a month before the appointment the thing is you have to bring a contract for an apartment for a year or two or three what be to your appointment, but August is. the worst time to look for apartments because students come back workers come back people on vacation airbnbs are like booked up whatever so we had a hard time finding an apartment but it's not the video about apartments ok we'll talk in another one like that that i checked seth's portugal immigration website and they asked me for a lot of papers to bring, like his bank statement, his portuguese nif number, like tax number, apartment insurance, health card, like a bunch of stuff, I brought all this stuff and they just took away. three nif health card apartment that was like we didn't care about the rest we have it in the system like but it's also a very important thing when you go to your appointment check the location ion because for some places you will need to bring your photos because for me I went to one that is close to the center and they took all the photos there they took all the fingerprints they asked me to sign some things so that everything would be like digitally no I don't have to bring extra things for my husband, he went to the north of Portugal, not like Portugal but Lisbon so he had to bring the paper photos so for residency here in Portugal we pay around 130 euros each so the total is 2 30 to get his visa and residency card in in terms of processing times my husband got his card a week after his appointment which is crazy i got my card how do i show it to him security first i got it a week and a half then it was like 1 0 days 11 days which is super fast because they told us it would take three to four weeks some people told us it would take like two three months so we thought oh can we buy tickets to go somewhere near or like we can't so i was like me you know we're going to germany let's see how it goes and then i got my green card so we're going to germany in two weeks now let's talk about lawyers and immigration advisers so it's an interesting topic me I would say because I have never used any such as immigration services, so we had two consultations with lawyers, one was a Russian-speaking person here in Portugal, another was like, I think, a Canadian American lawyer, the thing is if you have a Pretty basic case, it means you have a husband you have a wife, they both work. it's hard to get a d7 visa from the countries again if you have a super complicated case like you have, say, a father who pays for everything and then you have a mother who is a housewife and then you have five kids two dogs maybe in this In If that makes sense, talk to the lawyers and say, hey guys, how do we actually do that for ourselves when the lawyer named the prices?
Excuse me, husband, I'm going to do everything myself. It is not worth paying 20 000 euros no no no no so they told us the whole application thing from applying for a visa to getting your passport is like 20 something k yours like what excuse me I decided to count and we have already saved about 10,000 for not asking lawyers to help us I mean if you don't have time and money sure you can always afford lawyers or like immigration people but they charge you 500 bucks to open a bank account or like to get your number from nif we literally pay like 50 bucks to the bank we don't pay anything so you should always know to evaluate your case maybe take a query like we did and then see if it's worth it or not and this is all for Today, I think I have covered everything if you still have doubts the comments are yours if you are planning to move to Portugal.
I wish you good luck and I will see you very soon. Bye.
