When can investors expect the Portuguese government to end the Golden Visa eligibility of properties purchased in Lisbon and Porto?

I am closing a deal with a property seller in Lisbon and preparing my Golden Visa application. Someone told me recently that the government plans to end the Golden Visa eligibility of investors who purchase properties in Lisbon and Porto. When can this new policy take effect? I am worried that I won’t be able to submit my application on time.

    It depends on the parliamentary agenda. But we believe that this change will happen by the end of the year.

    Your Golden Visa application shall be submitted as soon as possible. The rumors are that the government intends to approve this limitation quickly.
