About us

Movingto was created by are Dean and Ana Fankhauser. It's your one-stop destination for making global living easy.

Founded in April 2021 Movingto was inspired by their own experiences of moving from London to Lisbon. Frustrated with the process, they wanted to make relocating a modern, digital, user-friendly, and more cost-effective experience.

They now live in Lisbon, Portugal, with their two children, and are committed to helping others avoid the same frustrations they experienced. Movingto started as a comparison site for visas and relocation firms, with a mission to guide people towards the best ways to move abroad.

However, after many requests from our users, we expanded our services. We're now proud to also offer services directly to our customers, partnering with some of the best lawyers in Portugal to provide these services at competitive prices.

Since our inception, we've helped issue hundreds of visas, and we're growing faster than ever. This achievement is a testament to our commitment to making global mobility accessible and easy.

We've built our platform to be a free comparison tool and information service for people looking to relocate abroad. Our aim is to give you the information you need to make wiser choices. We are independent, and the offers you see on our website come from businesses that pay Movingto. Our editorial content is not provided by any of the companies mentioned, and has not been reviewed, approved, or otherwise endorsed by any of these entities.

Importantly, we ensure the accuracy of the information on our platform by working directly with the firms we feature. This hands-on approach allows us to deliver reliable, up-to-date information directly from the source.

Our vision is to be the go-to resource for anyone looking to move countries. We believe in the importance and usefulness of services like Movingto, and we're committed to being at the forefront of the global mobility movement.

Join us on your journey to a new life abroad. Together, we can make global living easy

Movingto is seriously awesome

"Movingto is seriously awesome! They made my business expansion to Portugal smooth, providing D2 visa info and paperwork help. The supportive team eased what seemed a complex process. Today, I'm writing this from my new office in Lisbon, all thanks to them. If moving to Portugal, choose Movingto. They're amazing!"

Happy with them

"Movingto helped me getting a digital nomad visa for Portugal. My job is in UK and I can work remotely from anywhere. They also introduced me to the benefits of the NHR and I’ve been saving a lot of money while traveling. I couldn’t recommend them more"

I used this service to get a NIF number…

I used this service to get a NIF number for my father. They managed to get it in less than 7 days, gave me a log in to manage the number as well.I haven't got around to using it for their other services yet, but it worked well for me.
