We live in California, USA. We submitted a GV (by investment) application to SEF on June 2022. For various personal reasons we sold our house in the US and bought a place in Portugal in October 2022 and we are now renting an apartment in California and have all our stuff in storage till we have a visa. Unfortunately we are hearing of more and more delays to getting a residence visa. We can't really wait much longer so we are considering going the D7 visa route now.
Realistically, does anyone have any thoughts on when we could actually move to Portugal if we did continue with the GV (we have heard even two years mentioned!)? If it is very long we just may have to start the process again hoping for a faster result with a D7.
Thanks for any advice, thoughts or comments!
