How do I become a Portuguese tax resident?

In order to become a Portuguese tax resident, you must satisfy one of the following conditions:

  1. Stay in Portugal for at least 183 days, consecutively or non-consecutively, within a 12-month period
  2. Have accommodation that you intend to occupy as your habitual residence.

In practice, your Portugal tax residency begins on the date that you update your NIF with a Portuguese address. See our guide on how to update your NIF address here.
