What Should You Be Aware of When Moving to Portugal?
When moving internationally, there are several important things to take into account when planning. For example, there may be different legislations, other regulations, permits and systems in which you must be registered before you can move. This applies to small as well as large projects, on the private front as well as in the business sector.
Portugal being a member of the EU makes the process a lot easier, but the task should still not be taking too lightly, as important details can easily be missed. For example, as an EU citizen, one is entitled to stay in the country for up to 3 months when moving to Portugal. Afterwards, it is necessary to apply for a residence permit. Typically, this requires a work contract or enrolment in a study program, as their starting point is that one must have an incentive to settle permanently.
Since your current health insurance probably does not cover you in Portugal for a longer period, you need to obtain Portuguese health insurance. Portugal is known for supporting user payment, so one must be prepared to pay a certain amount to see a doctor.
To obtain a work permit in Portugal, you need a tax card. It can be obtained at a local tax office.
