Wish I could go! Iโ€™ll be in Sicily until Fri, then Iโ€™ll be back.
Welcome back ๐Ÿ˜‰
It's hipster coffee for a reason ๐Ÿ˜‚ not DELTA ๐Ÿ—‘
April - October be in Portugal
November - March be in Madeira or Thailand or Bali
I have never been to Portugal, is one week enough to see Lisbon + Porto?
If you are not working, yeah one week can get you a glimpse. But DN'ing I'd suggest a month or more
Depends if you want to tourist or DN!
Does anyone know of a contact in Lisbon who can help walk me through the golden visa requirements? Perhaps an immigration lawyer?
Not a lawyer. But from what I'm reading in various groups GV route isn't as lucrative. And seems like the process is much longer. Have you considered D7?

hello! i was wondering if anyone has a recommendation on any Co-Living apartments in Lisbon. Iโ€™ll be there for three months but don't want to stay at Selina for my whole trip
samesameliving or Outsite, but try to book asap because it's always full
svftjvuwgy farnvsaicened So I'm flying back from a family trip in November and trying to make an excuse to stop for a week. I was thinking 3/4 days in Lisbon and then take the train up to Porto for no work / exploring the city + historical landmarks perhaps.

Long term my goal is to spend a few months in Portugal but is it crazy to try to do a sneak peak in the off season? I'm hoping for less crowds in Nov too
November still has decent weather in both IMHO unless you get really unlucky. I went to Porto in January once and even then half the time it was sunny (albeit cool)
not sure about Porto, but overall in Lisbon the real misery is mostly late December/January
but even then, like I said, it's sunny half the time, so it doesn't rain _all the time_
the issue really is the lack of insulation and proper heating in many places, but I don't think that's something that gets to you over a few days... and it's exacerbated by staying in an old building (which are really cool to begin with), so you can avoid some of that by finding something more modern
This would be first week of November - hopefully its still lively and not too crowded with tourists ๐Ÿ™‚
fuck yes
hey ๐Ÿ‘‹ let me know when you reach Porto, would gladly grab coffee and show you around!
thanks you fellaz, letโ€™s make some tartines
Have fun! Unfortunately at the moment it isnโ€™t ideal to surf. Very flat in Caparica. Could be better in Guincho.
July / August in Lisbon would be way too hot for me ๐Ÿ™ˆ I think we have different preferences when it comes to weather ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ I found Barcelona in January only slightly too cold, so I think mid-October to mid-December in Lisbon should be alright for me
Maybe wait till September then
Headed to Porto for 3 days from Lisbon. Anyone got any restaurant recommendations?
if you're not vegan/veggy i'd recommend
โ€ข _Emotivo_ no menu, 4-course meal (starters, fish, meat, and dessert) of traditional Portuguese food (you get to choose which region) made in front of you with fresh and local ingredients (pricy but high quality โ€” around 20-30 euros without wine)
โ€ข _A Tasquinha Dos Guindais_ small place with a terrace, grilled sardines and local cheese in a narrow pedestrian street going down to the Douro (cheap, nice vibe)
thank you!
amazing! thank you!!
Francesinha and Portuguese food at Cervejria Brasรฃo.
Pernil at O Buraco
I think it's worth it to take a 15min Uber to Matoshinos for the "best seafood in Portugal" ๐Ÿ˜„ like they advertise on busses.

My favorite restaurant is Meia-Nau but If its full then Sรฃo Valentim right next to it is a good plan B.

Edit oh there's actually another Meia-Nau in Porto.

Another great place for fish food is Sรฃo Pedro da Afurada. Small fishing town 15min from Porto with an Uber. Any restaurant here is top notch.
Yes agree but I have AC and stay on the beach, Lisbon way too hot for me always
Always 5ยฐC hotter feels like than on the beach
Anybody in Porto tomorrow and wants to grab a drink / coffee?
how is your health?
๐Ÿ›ฌ jcxbqnmuhldlwurw just arrived in Quarteira, #portugal
Coming to Porto in a month to lease a place to move by Dec22/Jan23. Anybody know a website other than idealista? (Btw, coimbra works too). Beer/coffee on me when I'm there next month.
from my experience Facebook Groups are a good place to check if you want to pay reasonable rent (there are 5 or 6 like _Expats in Porto_, _Apartamentos Porto_, etc.).

there also are websites like _uniplaces_ or _housinganywhere_ but felt overpriced at the time i was searching (approx. 4 months ago).

i was checking _idealista_ daily and had a few visits but the vast majority were either very pricy or very bad quality (or both).
Hi guys, are there any experts here on the D7 visa? I am an American and would like to find out more about the visa.
I got mine recently. The best resource I found was the โ€œAmericans & FriendsPTโ€ Facebook group. Tons of up to date resources, helpful people, etc. take some time to go through their posted files and searching older chat threads on various topics before asking questions there.
Perfect. Iโ€™ll take a look!
Has anyone gotten a NIF recently by physically going to SEF? What was your experience like? What's the wait time, etc...?
Hi, guys. Did someone use Deloitte Portugal for tax consultations regarding NHR? Is it worth it?
For the D7 visa when they say you have to live in Portugal for a certain amount of time out of the yearโ€ฆ does that mean that you have to be physically in the country during that time period?
tkzlmhuofzvyqo feel free to ping me if you need help on something
I went to one of the Finanรงas's offices (Portuguese Financial Authorities) in person and got it immediately. I had previously registered at the local municipality (Loja de Cidadรฃo) and I brought my CREU (EU Certificate of Residency) with me. Bare in mind that I am an EU citizen so I didn't have to interact with SEF. If you also consider going to any governmental body's office, be sure you are at least 30 min the opening hours because there is oftentimes a huge line.
Great, really appreciate it!!
it sounds cleat to me.
yes physical presence for more than half the year
botfvmbdttzepy Ah, nice, I didnโ€™t know it was only half a year. Thatโ€™s not too bad.
yeah especially since Madeira and Azores count as Portugal
#Lisbon For those who did not notice, Lisbon meetup was changed from Friday to Thursday, which is today.
Anyone in Lisbon have high recommendations for a coworking space?
the people at the parking ticket counter donโ€™t speak english and get annoyed if you try to use the elevator
We are standing forming a circle by the tree
Still going on?
Looks like you have moved on :(
Have you guys headed somewhere else?

Traveling to Lisbon on the 27. August for a week with a friend.

Any recommendations for areas to (not) stay or hotels/apartments?
Need a small quiet desk to work and the general area should also be quiet, and not to far from the center/restaurants.
Appreciate your help :relaxed:
thought this was going on today. facepalm
๐Ÿ“ธ Did you take any photos at the Lisbon meetup this week? โœ… Upload them here

Hey yall, I'm thinking of picking up surfing in Ericeira. Any recommendations on surf camps, surf schools, or just life in Ericeira in general? Thanks in advance ๐Ÿค™
Aw man so sorry that happened to you broโ€ฆ
Anyone spent much time in Madeira or Azores and done much surfing? Trying to find the right spot where I can theoretically surf every day while still getting work done at a coworking spot. Any tips would be appreciated!
Although it's Spain, have you considered Fuerteventura, Canary Islands?
I am not a surfer, but Sao Miguel in the Azores has good waves usually.
The island is small, so easy to get around.
otdniyf Yes the Canary Islands are near the top of my list but I am planning to try to get the Portuguese D7 visa which means I will have to spend most of a year in Portugal.
dpvczdbdqebt I read in another thread that the Azores can be a bit too โ€œquietโ€ at times compared to Madeira. What was your experience like?
Iโ€™ve never been to Madeira, so I canโ€™t compare, but Sao Miguel is indeed a quiet, relaxed place, thatโ€™s why I am moving there. We have 2 kids and we like the quiet relaxed lifestyle ๐Ÿ™‚ Not for everyone though.
Traveling between Madeira and the Azores is easy though, so why not spend a short period on both and then you can decide which suits you better.
You can surf the entire year in Madeira, I can point you the exact places if you want
zwhenrjpvpwx Yeah thatโ€™s what Iโ€™m thinking. I post up in Portugal for a couple of months and spend a long weekend in either of those two island areas. Scout it out then make the decision from there.

Been a dream of mine to be able to post up near a beach and just work + surf every day. I never would have thought Iโ€™d be into island living but it looks like I might be moving in that direction and I couldnโ€™t be more excited! ๐Ÿ˜
The city of Ribeira Grande, in Sรฃo Miguel island, might be a good place for you. They are pushing the city as a โ€œcapital of surfโ€. Mainly because of the Santa Barbara beach which attracts many surfers and surf events.
lwceuzml I'm in Porto too, going thru the visa. Down for some shisha on Sunday?

They are, submitted in June and just got approved Thursday.
Are there any bubble developers in this group, currently in Lisbon?
I heard a non-EU citizen got their D7 approved recently
Question for those of you who have lived on Madeira:
a.) Is there much to enjoy in Funchal when living in the city (eg for 3-6 months?). It seems like most of the nature and surfing is outside of Funchal. Where does one hang out while living in Funchal?
b.) Are there any places on the island that have solid coworking spaces but are also near a place to surf? Itโ€™s a very big gamble for me to hope that an Airbnb has wifi and a desk + chair that is conducive to me being productive for my coding. Even the listings on Airbnb that show up with the โ€œDedicated Workspaceโ€ criteria often donโ€™t seem to show anything that actually looks like that in the photosโ€ฆ which is SUPER annoying.

If I visit Madeira and like it, it may just make more sense to find a solid apartment for a longer time period and perhaps furnish the actual desk and chair myself. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that finding solid furniture on the island has to be pretty difficult due to logistical reasons.

Punta do Sol and Porto da Cruz seem like nice places to live, but maybe itโ€™d make more sense to live in Funchal and visit those areas on the weekends. Would love any feedback you guys have to give on this.

Is there a sizeable nomad community in Porto or other places in the north? Any groups or meetups going on? I will visit in september, might stay longer if I enjoy it there. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚
