For guests

Portugal has always been a country of choice for foreign families, remote workers, and retirees looking for a place in the sun in southern Europe.

Known for its gastronomy, hospitality, and amazing beaches – which are already reasons enough to justify a move – Portugal also offers tax benefits to foreigners moving to the country, and to those who, being Portuguese citizens, have resided abroad in the last 5 years.

New tax residents, who acquire the Non-Habitual Resident Status (NHR), benefit from a special IRS rate of 20% for 10 years.
