Default Hello from newbie, in Portugal

Hi - been meaning to join the forum for some time - and finally got round to it. I've actually been in Portugal for 3 years now - so just starting to feel the need get better organised as I have had my contract re-newed for another 3 years. I do have some queries regarding the usual stuff - residency permits, propery purchase - basically any information I may be able to get from forum members who have prior experience would be enormous help. If there is a search function, I may be able to get the info I need without having to clog up the forum with questions that have been asked before.

Thank you in advance!

Hi & welcome to finally joining the site

Have a look here which is the sub forum for Portugal where you can chat with others either in Portugal or making the move over.

Welcome again

Thanks for the warm welcome - I've already made inroads in the Portugal sub forum. Congratulations on an excellent (and genuinely useful!) site.

Hi - and thanks for the welcome. Would you believe it I have a Canadian colleague working right here with me (he's married to a Portuguese girl) - so we often discuss the merits/downsides to living in Canada-UK-Portugal. I guess its unavoidable to make comparisons when you're living abroad

Thank you for the extra info and notes - joining the forum has already helped me out with a couple of things - and I'm doing the searches for other queries. It seems many of the questions I had in mind have already been asked and discussed in detail here - so I have plenty to go on. Wish I'd joined sooner - might have been able to save myself several wasted trips to various public offices!!

Thanks again - the forum is now firmly bookmarked on my firefox toolbar!
