As a Portugal real estate agent, I have seen a significant increase in the number of international clients interested in moving to Portugal to work remotely. Many of them are what we call “digital nomads” – professionals who can work from anywhere in the world, as long as they have a reliable internet connection. This new trend has given rise to the Portugal Digital Nomad Visa, a new type of visa designed specifically for those who want to work remotely in this beautiful country.
I have seen firsthand the benefits of this visa for those who choose to take advantage of it. One of my clients, a freelance graphic designer from the United States, was able to move to Lisbon and continue working for her American clients without any issues. She was able to enjoy the sunny beaches during the day and attend networking events in the evening, all while maintaining a steady income stream.
Another client, a software developer from Canada, decided to move his family to Porto for a year and take advantage of the Portugal Digital Nomad Visa. He found it incredibly helpful to have a local agent who could guide him through the process of finding a suitable apartment, setting up utilities, and navigating the local bureaucracy.
The Portugal Digital Nomad Visa has quickly become one of the most popular ways for remote workers to enjoy the benefits of living in Portugal while continuing to work for clients in their home countries. In this guide, I will provide you with all the information you need to know about this visa, from the application process to the benefits of living and working in Portugal as a digital nomad.
