The residence of third-country nationals in Portugal is defined by the motive of their entry and duration of their stay. For short-stays, the third-country nationals must respect the Schengen rules. For long-stays, for more than 3 months, they have to respect the current national legislation.

There are some exceptions that allow the entry and staying of third-country nationals in Portugal, with visa exemption.

Portugal will end at the end of 2023 the Non-Habitual Residents (NHR) tax regime. If you are considering applying for the regime or in the process of moving to Portugal, we recommend you update your tax status as soon as possible and that your NHR application be submitted before the end of this year to secure the tax regime for 10 years. Act now!
