I am applying for a passive income d7 visa for temporary residence for Portugal.
I have called VFS Global, the consulate in Washington D.C., and attempted to reach SEF.
I have a goal of becoming a citizen of Portugal after 5 years of living there.
I need clarification on the minimum stay requirement as I often travel for business.
