After several wonderful assignments in Europe, Dillon Banerjee wanted to see how he could continue living in Europe after retiring from the Foreign Service. A tourist passport only allows Americans up to a 90 day stay in the Schengen Area, and Dillon wanted to be able to enjoy retirement with his family without geographic limits.
While researching options, he found another Foreign Service officer who had used the Golden Visa program to become a full-time resident of Portugal. This impactful conversation launched Dillon down a path that ultimately led him to applying for EU citizenship.
In this episode, hear Dillon discuss:
- How to navigate the bureaucratic process of the Golden Visa application
- The funds necessary for the investments
- In which countries the Golden Visa is a possibility
- How to find and vet law firms that specialize in this process and can assist you
…and so much more!
