Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in UK brings Portugal to London in October

After a successful rebranding in March 2023, the Chamber’s Moving to Portugal Show returns to central London on October 19.

Since several key legislative changes in the areas of property purchase, rentals and visas are under way in Portugal this year, the Chamber has invited several new exhibitors to take part in the show, to ensure visitors are getting the most up to date information possible on how to make their business or lifestyle move to Portugal a success from day one.

For visitors dreaming of living near the beach, yearning for a country cottage to renovate, or imagining living on a golf resort or in a city centre apartment, organisers have gathered the best real estate agents and developers that offer properties from all over Portugal: namely Cerro Novo, Chave Nova, DDM, Fine and Country Algarve, Goldcrest Properties, Optylon Krea, Futuro Real Estate and Pestana Algarve.

Moving to Portugal Show

For visitors who want to know more about the tax and pensions implications of moving, the Chamber has invited industry leaders Blevins Franks, Sovereign Group and TPMC to provide expert advice on pensions, financial planning, and tax matters.

Other exhibitors new to the show include Caixa Geral de Depósitos, Portugal’s largest bank, who will explain the process of sourcing mortgage finance. And speaking of finances, Currencies 4 You will be there to explain how the right advice on foreign exchange makes your money go further.

Sourcing the right residency advice before moving from the UK to Portugal is paramount.

Navigating Portugal’s legal and administrative requirements can be complex. Visitors can get professional advice from Global Citizen Solutions and Sovereign Group to ensure a smooth transition, getting information on visas, permits, and documentation.

Moving to Portugal is the only UK event that focuses solely on the Portuguese property market. The show opens at 10.30am and closes at 7.30pm and takes place at the Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel – 354 Queenstown Road, London SW11 8AE.
