What flexibility do I have in terms of working, living and traveling among EU countries if I become a Golden Visa holder of Portugal?

I want to apply for a Golden Visa of Portugal. I was told that Portugal’s golden visa residence permit grants non-EU nationals the same treatment as Portuguese citizens. I would like to know what flexibility I could enjoy in terms of working, living and travelling.

    As a Portuguese Golden Visa holder, you have free access to all Schengen countries, but to live and work outside Portugal, you have to comply with the rules of each member state.

    Portugal’s Golden Visa grants non-EU nationals the same treatment as Portuguese citizens. Golden Visa holders shall be entitled for five years to the following: enter and remain in Portugal; travel in other countries within the Schengen area without needing a visa; family reunification, allowing the closest kin of the applicant to benefit from the same advantages conferred to him/her, creating new opportunities in their lives; simultaneously benefit from the Golden Visa and the Non-Habitual Resident Status (NHR); access the permanent residence permit in Portugal at the end of the five years; apply to the Portuguese nationality at the end of the five years.
