Overview

It is often one of the first steps for expatriates who plan to reside in, or have a financial connection with, Portugal.

A Portugal NIF, which stands for Número de Identificação Fiscal, is the Portuguese tax identification number. It is a unique number assigned to both individuals and companies to serve as a means of identification before tax authorities.

Below, you'll find a description of what a Portugal NIF is and how it works:

Purpose:
The NIF is used for all tax-related activities and legal transactions in Portugal. It is essential for carrying out financial transactions such as opening a bank account, signing a contract, receiving a salary, setting up utilities, or completing property transactions.

Usage:
Once obtained, the NIF must be presented when engaging in activities that have tax implications. Employers require the NIF to process paychecks and withhold the correct amount of tax.

It is used in all invoices and receipts to ensure proper accounting and tax reporting.

Importance for Non-Residents:
Non-residents who wish to engage in economic activities or own property in Portugal also need to obtain a NIF.

Frequently Asked Questions

Moving is difficult, so we're sure you have a lot of questions!

What is a Portugal D7 Visa?
Expand

The Portugal D7 Visa, also known as the Passive Income Visa, is intended for individuals who wish to move to Portugal and can sustain themselves financially without needing employment there. This could be through pensions, rental income, financial investments, or other forms of passive income. It's popular among retirees, freelancers, and digital nomads.

Who is eligible for a D7 Visa?
Expand

You're eligible for a D7 Visa if you can demonstrate steady passive income that can comfortably cover your living expenses in Portugal. There's no specified minimum amount, but as a guide, it should meet the Portuguese minimum wage, currently of approximately €700 per month.

How long is the D7 Visa valid for?
Expand

The D7 Visa is initially valid for one year and can be renewed for successive periods of two years. After five years of legal residency, you can apply for permanent residency or even Portuguese Citizenship if you meet certain criteria.

Does the D7 Visa allow me to work in Portugal?
Expand

While the D7 Visa is geared towards individuals with passive income, it doesn't prohibit you from working. However, you'll need to meet certain requirements, and any income you generate from working can't be used to meet the income requirement for the visa.

Can my family come with me on a D7 Visa?
Expand

Yes, dependents can be included in your D7 Visa application. This can include your spouse, minor children, and dependent parents.

How do I apply for a D7 Visa?
Expand

Movingto will guide you through the whole application process. Which starts in your home country at a Portuguese embassy or consulate. You'll need to provide several documents, including proof of your passive income, and you may need to attend an interview. Once your application is approved, you move to Portugal and apply for a residence permit.

What documents do I need for the application?
Expand

You'll need to provide documents like a valid passport, proof of health insurance, criminal record certificate, and importantly, proof of your regular passive income. Check the embassy's requirements as they can vary.

How long does the application process take?
Expand

The processing time can vary but typically takes between 1-4 months. It's recommended to apply well in advance of your planned move date to account for any delays.

How much does the D7 Visa cost?
Expand

Movingto has the best prices in the market at $2,800 per first applicant. There could be additional costs for document translations or notary services. Be sure to check with your local embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date information.

What steps do I need to take after arriving in Portugal with my D7 Visa?
Expand

Once you're in Portugal, you'll need to apply for a residence permit, register with the local authorities, and set up your tax status. You may also want to open a Portuguese bank account.

Can I buy property in Portugal with a D7 Visa?
Expand

Yes, there are no restrictions on property ownership for D7 Visa holders. In fact, Movingto can assist you in securing the best mortgage rates in Portugal.

How does health insurance work in Portugal?
Expand

Health insurance is a requirement for the D7 Visa. Portugal has a public health system, but you may choose to opt for private health insurance. You can compare health insurance options on Movingto

What about taxes?
Expand

That is the best part! As a resident of Portugal, you are eligible to apply for an NHR tax regime and save lots of money by paying to reduce taxes in Portugal. Portugal has numerous double tax agreements in place to avoid you being taxed twice.
