Portuguese Government publishes legislation setting out measures protecting UK nationals in Portugal if the UK leaves the EU without an agreed deal.

On 28 March 2019, the Portuguese Government published legislation that sets out measures to apply if the UK leaves the EU without an agreed deal. The new law (Law no. 27-A/2019, in Portuguese) covers the protection and continuation of rights of British nationals and their families currently living in Portugal. It also covers access to healthcare for residents and UK visitors, access to education, exchange of the UK driving licenses, and the recognition of professional qualifications.

British Consul in Portugal Simona Demuro said “In the Embassy we recognize that this is an uncertain time for the British community living in Portugal, but the legislation passed by the Portuguese Government in March should help UK nationals feel reassured about the continuation of their residency rights if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

The British Embassy in Lisbon and Consulate in Portimão keep UK nationals informed through the Living in Portugal guide on gov.uk, and through our Facebook page Brits in Portugal.

The Embassy team also holds outreach meetings across Portugal to share the latest information and respond to concerns and queries from the British community.

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.
