The resident permit grants the foreign citizens the same treatment as nationals, particularly about social security, tax benefits, European Union membership (EU), recognition of diplomas, certificates, and other professional titles. It also grants access to goods and services available to the public, as well as the application of provisions that concede them exclusive rights.

For most intents and purposes, the resident permit put the foreign nationals (non-EU) on par with other citizens of Europe. One of the greatest benefits of this is that Golden Visa holders may apply for a permanent residence permit or acquire Portuguese nationality by naturalization in the 5th year if they fulfill certain requirements in accordance with the law.
