RESIDENCE WITHOUT WORK PERMIT

The current legal framework for immigration details what was until a few years ago called passive residence, which is now referred to as a residence without work permit. These permits differ based on the type of path to residency: through an investment in the country (equivalent to the old passive residency), through an eminently international activity or as an expert in a field of science, culture or sport.
