Brexit deal has been rescheduled for the third time, now for 31st January 2020 unless the Withdrawal Agreement can be ratified before then. Given the continued possibility of a no-deal crash out, individuals are taking steps to protect their own positions.

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.

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.
