Living in Portugal

The British embassy in Portugal has released a new pocket-sized leaflet especially for British citizens living in Portugal or preparing to move to the country.

The leaflet is designed to be a checklist with simple information detailing what the consulates can and cannot do for British citizens as well as employment in Portugal, the importation of belongings and vehicles, residence requirements and more.
