Re: NHR Application Form Online

Was your NIF registered to a PT address in 2020 or was it still registered to your UK one? If the latter, the financas system will not let you register for 2020 as it thinks you were not resident in...

Re: Ship belongings or start from new?

It really depends where you're coming from. If outside the EU you'll need to do some extra customs paperwork (i.e. get a baggage certificate from your local Portuguese consulate, which is not hard to...

Maternity Leave in Portugal

As I understand it, new mothers are entitled to 100% of their pay for 120 consecutive days (plus another optional150 days' leave that parents can take at 80% of the monthly salary).

Re: Advice on job please

Maybe so, but in any language grammar is required. Also, if you're working in healthcare/sciences/research in the US, a good command of the English language is probably required.

Re: Re-entry Permits + travel to the US

Another question (the lawyer's answer was not very helpful). We have to apply for the reentry permit before we leave and will do so 2 months before target leave date. What date is put on the re entry...

Re: Re-entry Permits + travel to the US

Thank you petitefrancaise , very helpful. I am not considering citizenship really but it's good to know about the 180 day rule (and, pandemic permitting, shouldn't be too hard to do). I though that...

Re: Moving to Florida from UK

Re: UK nurse wanting to go to the USA

Right ˆ. And yes I've seen your spiel before but it applies to very few people. You're still shelling out 750 a month even if most of it's to a HSA.

Re: UK nurse wanting to go to the USA

What visa is your partner coming on? If it's anything other than a H visa you would likely be able to work but you'd need to be married. You might earn more as a nurse in the US but you may not be...
