๐ŸŽ“How does the family reunion works?

Portugal is amazing here too - it allows you to move your relatives legally.

Moreover, many embassies allow "family filing" for some types of D visas.

If you aren't filing the application in Russia, you should find out - maybe the whole family can get D visas at once. If you do not succeed in it, the details on how to get a family visa are below.

Is it possible to fly to Portugal and get a startup visa on the spot?
Or do I have to apply for it in my own country?

Yes. You can fly to Portugal and get a visa inside the country - most applicants do that. But it is better to get your idea approved by IAPMEI before you arrive.
