For many people a move to Portugal is triggered by a desire for a change in lifestyle – an idea for a new business, the opportunity for a change in career, retirement, a new job, or the start of studies. In the case of moving for employment, the related matters may be handled by the employer, however it’s always useful to understand the system.
