You Can Still Move to Portugal in 2020

If you are considering a move to live, work or retire to Portugal time is running out to secure the right to long term residence that has been available while the UK has been a member of the EU. The Brexit Transition Period lasts until 31st December 2020 and if you can become legally resident in Portugal before the end of the year you can still secure those benefits and avoid what are likely to be more onerous requirements once the UK is no longer in the EU.   The quarantine restrictions are making it difficult but not impossible to make the move.  Whether you want to move this year or wait until 2021 or beyond Expat Network aims to help you make the move.   You can listen to our free Portugal Webinar recorded live on 4th August 2020 to understand the requirements and get a simple step-by-step guide on how to make the move. You can watch the full 3-hour webinar or the different parts:   We will be announcing more webinars shortly for those still planning to move this year as well as those planning to move in 2021 or beyond.  Please let us know if you have any suggestions on topics that you would like us to cover in upcoming webinars.   Please contact us with any questions or suggestions on expats@expatnetwork.com.

Move to Portugal Roadshow

We had planned an event in Portugal in September, but the UK Government’s erratic decision-making on air corridors and quarantine have made that difficult.  We have postponed this event:  
  • Algarve – 22nd April 2021 for those planning to move to the Costa del Sol, Costa Tropical and Costa de Almeria.

These will give you the opportunity to visit and tour the area you plan to move to and hear from a series of specialists about the practicalities of the move (legal and financial issues, banks, schools, settling in and how to get the best out of your life in Portugal.   We will arrange an individual personalised tour for you and your partner to see properties available to rent or buy to get a flavour for what properties are available or, if you are ready, to find the property you want to rent or buy.  In view of ongoing Covid-19 safety measures these will be arranged with appropriate safety measures and social distancing.   We are finalising arrangements over the next few weeks, but you can register your interest without obligation now and we will give you more information and costs as soon as they are available.

Moving in 2020? This will not help those who plan to move in 2020 and we hope that the webinars we will be holding will help.  It is not too late to move this year, however, despite the current restrictions and we would be happy to help by answering any questions you may have or by putting you in touch with people who can help you to understand and arrange the formalities and practicalities and find your dream home to rent or buy.   Please contact us with any questions or suggestions on expats@expatnetwork.com.   *Registration is required to view the recordings.
