Things to consider when moving to Portugal
Many families, individuals and retirees adventure out to the Algarve intending to make it their permanent residence. It is essential that they take professional advice, if possible before they leave.

– When and how to take up residency;
– Buying or renting a property;
– What to do about healthcare;
– Whether to import or buy a car;
– Opening a bank account, transferring and exchanging money.
