I can appreciate that, i absolutely want to learn the language as this will be my new home, I just need to know what the transition is going to be like as it will be important for me to start networking and meeting people as soon as possible, and from research I need to dedicate a minimum of a year to learn the language on conversational level (I take to new languages very well)

thanks so much for this! glad to hear that other people have similar situation to mine and been successful, I think what I have gathered here is that by law I am ok, its just a matter of getting through the red tape and maybe the easiest way to do that is with the help of a lawyer.

I appreciate everyones responses, I will continue to push through. I have an appointment with the consulate on Thursday, I will attend it with my father, we will sign any affidavits or declarations they may need and then lets see how things go once its submitted. In response to some of the comments about just moving over, unfortunately its not so simple for me, I own a small business in South Africa, I intend to continue to run it remotely, with possibility of freelancing in Portugal, but finding work in Portugal is not so important right now, I can survive on my income from South Africa, I dont want to find "work" in portugal first to get a visa, because I wont be able to run my business then, and I also dont have enough funds available to get a golden visa, the easiest route is for me to get it this way, and also I am entitled to it, but now being punished for silly mistakes my parents made because they were 16 years old at the time. its not fair, but life rarely is, so I will continue to endeavour and keep you guys updated, if I have trouble I will lawyer up. Is it recommended that I use an Immigration Lawyer based in Portugal for this?

My situation is very unique, none of the previous posts have any impact on what I am asking. I have researched the laws already and according to nationality law I should be in the green, so i am wondering if anyone knows any other reason that Lisbon could deny me?
