When can I move to Portugal?

Movingto Editorial Team
November 24, 2021

Depending on the country you are currently residing in, you can move to Portugal any time. Even during covid, Portugal is open to new people moving to the country. The only thing you must be aware of is that processing times of residency permit and visas are significantly longer than pre-covid times. 

The Portuguese Government has gone to great lengths to attract high-quality expats, as we all entice previous residents back to the country with programs like the NHR (Non-Habitual Residence). It gives new and previous residents significant tax-free or tax-reduced benefits. Particularly those in highly skilled positions. 

Portugal is open to new residents, however, prepare for delays to your applications.
