What You’ll Learn:
This course consists of more than four hours of video instruction, more than thirty resources, and a downloadable relocation plan for you to fill out and follow based on the information you learn from the course.
The video instruction is broken into more than ten different modules. Each module focuses on a different aspect of moving or living in Portugal.
We begin the course with an introduction on our move to Portugal. We also discuss the country of Portugal – including culture, social etiquette, and things to keep in mind when moving and living in Portugal. We then discuss the details of relocating to Portugal, including how to move household goods, vaccinations and health requirements, moving with pets, and more.
Probably the biggest source of anxiety when moving to Portugal is the visa process. We have an entire section in the course that we carve out to talk in detail about applying for visas. We talk about our own personal experience and we walk you through every step that we took to obtain visa permits for our family of four – including some quirky rules that we had to follow. We also talk about how to obtain a residency permit (like we did); the different types of residency visas and requirements, including the Golden Visa; and we also talk about work permits and employment-based visas.
Living in Portugal, we get a ton of questions about taxes. Because of this, we have a special section in the course where we discuss taxes in Portugal. We give you an overview of the tax system here in Portugal; we discuss the tax incentives for foreigners; we discuss the types of taxes and rates that foreigners need to pay in Portugal; we talk about tax requirements for U.S. citizens and how taxes in the U.S. and Portugal work; and we talk about Portugal’s Non-Habitual Resident (NHR) tax regime and how we applied for NHR status to enjoy tax breaks in Portugal.
We designed our course to be very comprehensive, so our course also includes information on how to obtain a NIF, the process of buying a house in Portugal, the process of renting a place in Portugal and setting up utilities, how to find good healthcare, how to set up banking and transfers in Portugal, how to enroll your kids in school in Portugal and information on the various types of schools in Portugal, how to buy a car in Portugal, how to bring your pets to Portugal, and more.
At the end of the course, we put everything together so that you can take action in applying for your visa, prepping for your move to Portugal, and (ultimately) setting up your life here in Portugal.
