If you're a non-EU citizen, you'll apply for a visa (usually D7) at a Portuguese embassy. You'll have to spend at least 6 consecutive months or 8 non-consecutive months per year in Portugal during the first 2 years - unless you buy a home. You also need to have a regular and reliable income of at least $15,000/year, and a 100% clean criminal record.
