To encourage British tourists to continue visiting the country, Turismo de Portugal launched the ‘Brelcome’ campaign, a pun between ‘Brexit’ and the word ‘welcome’, as a contingency plan to minimize the economic impact of United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union.
In addition to an online hotline available on the Visit Portugal portal, British tourists will benefit visa-free travel, dedicated airport corridors, health insurance and recognition of their driving license.
The goal is “to try to settle the British by saying that Portugal is still here, no matter what, with open arms,” said the secretary of state.
So, with Brexit deal uncertainty, it’s hard to tell how the Portugal NHR system can change for British residents, but those who are thinking of moving to Portugal can do so through the Portugal NHR scheme, which allows applicants to benefit tax-free conditions.

Since 2015, the number of UK residents in Portugal has grown, as have annual migration flows. That year, residence permits were granted to 17 230 Britons. In 2016, after the referendum, UK residents in Portugal increased by 12.8%, and the growing trend persisted, marking 22 431 in 2017, and over 26 500 in 2018.
If you’re looking to relocate to Portugal the Portugal NHR might be your best option, as you can have several tax benefits, besides the wonderful sunny weather!
If you’re looking for a nice place to live or spend your stay in Portugal, we can also help you find a house or property here.
