Flatio is nice as well I think
i grew up in za though so what i deem safe is not the same for a european/american
I grew up in a 300 people village, we leave all doors unlocked.

Safe for me is very different than from you I guess
Yup. Tons of people already flowing to CT from all over.
With ai enabled cameras I think many crime related issues will be solved
Ai enabled cameras smells like china
I think problem with ZA is it's on the brink of a race war
I don't wanna be the white guy there now
Some embassies/consulates accept an Airbnb booking (but not all). And an Airbnb booking could potentially be refundable/changeable.
zjwedjwgvjbizoeyb The embassy I'm applying to didn't ask for a lease agreement. "Proof of accommodation for 120 days" is all they said. But I've been reading and most people needed a lease agreement. So I'm not sure what to do. It's a lot of hassle and money to get a lease agreement.

Do you know of anyone who recently got an approval using an Airbnb/Agoda/Booking booking?
Maybe I'll do a cancellable booking. If they want a lease, they can ask me after I submit, then I'll provide it. Hopefully it won't result to a rejection? ๐Ÿค”
ukyrdir with D7, you should be able to get PR in 5 years and then +1 year more for citizenship. D7 is best for people who actually want to live in Portugal 9+ months out of the year, since there is a residency requirement. Golden Visa is best for those who want to become a Portuguese citizen, but don't want to live there (at least yet).
Is D7 req 9mo?
It's variable. Let me get the chart
Thanks a lot
This was made by the Americans & Friends in Portugal Facebook group.
D7 would be under Other Residence Permits
So the first two years average to 8 months/year. Next 3 years go to 9.33 months/year.
It's probably best to reach out to them (embassy, consulate, VFS, whichever one handles it for your region) ... To check ahead of time
imqvngzlgvruynpxu yes you're right ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks!
I am going to Lisbon for ethlisbon hackaton , I would really really appreciate if someone knows a way of getting a ticket to liscon that is right before
So everyone's moving to Portugal? ๐Ÿค”
๐Ÿ›ฌ rxzrmh just arrived in ๐Ÿ Portimรฃo, Algarve, #portugal
๐Ÿ›ฌ xcaggc just arrived in :boat:๏ธ Lisbon, #portugal
Just booked our flight for portugal this fall/winter!! So excited. Staying for 2 months. Anyone have general tips or recommended areas to stay?
costa vicentina
Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent enough Portuguese bank? I don't need anything fancy and I'd prefer if there are no monthly costs, and preferably that comes with an app that isn't a complete nightmare ๐Ÿ™ˆ at this point I pretty much just want to have a card with MB Way support so that I can set up Via Verde payments ๐Ÿ˜…
like cuqnieqppw says im kinda done with having friends everywhere but not in one place
PT seems like a nice place to live, lot of people staying longer term
Hey, i'll be in Lisbon for 5 weeks from mid-Oct also staying in Bairro Alto. All of this sounds good to me ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for all the input, will have to do some more research on all this that is for sure
activobank it's alright
Thank you, this looks just like what Iโ€™m looking for ๐Ÿ™
if I see another recommendation on Ericeira I will cut my wrists
arwcvwjudq bring it
Nice! It's kind of a shame that I'm from Spain but never been to Portugal, I gotta go
lbigfbw you should try Madeira
nhpauede is it better than Fuerteventura? ๐Ÿ˜‚
Everything is better than Fuerte .
you just earned yourself a free beer when we meet ๐Ÿ˜‚
I recommend Ericeira
That's the thing, I can see myself live there and raise kids for ex, because I'll have friends near, clean air, nice nature, beaches, nice weather, nice locals

I'm ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น and I couldn't see myself living there until I visited Madeira.

Now I'm changing my mind and maybe it will be one of my bases
Madeira is very nice and have a really good digital nomad community. Since Iโ€™m from NZ so scenery and climate is nowhere could compared ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™m a bit city girl so I might pick up Lisbon in the end (going to Porto next month to have a explore).

Azores! Although that is another flight in of itself
oh man! I wish!
Is there a nomadic community on the islands nowadays? I visited briefly in Oct 2019 and didnโ€™t sense anything like that (didnโ€™t research much either fwiw)
not there may be some requirements about having a negative test, etc in order to enter โ€” but these things are probably not always enforced.

While going from Spain->France, they had police on the border asking for tests. They sent me back to get tested in Spain and come back. I did and was back at the border after 2hr โ€” but by then, there was nobody on the border and cars were just flying through
Is there Korean BBQ in Ericeira though? ๐Ÿ˜‰ />

In the end of the day, the burden falls on the local politics to ensure that such pricing out of locals does not happen.

People in the area vote for politicians to represent their interests โ€” we, as nomads, are just making use of whatever option is given to us, and I think thatโ€™s totally fair.

As said, this is a general problem in any location you may visit.
I am also going there in October, so I guess thereโ€™s only one way to find out ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Thoughts on Cascais?
What's a Korean bbq?
kcmyrarm what the
xvbytvqhgxmitad KBBQ 40min away from ericeira in lisbon
Never heard about it.
Should I try it
Nice, fancy, no nomad community
i love you exist in a completely different reality than me
you don't know Reddit or Korean BBQ
I was shocked some digital nomads in Madeira never heard about C. Ronaldo ๐Ÿ˜‚
Is there a calendar of events for things happening in Porto? :calendar:
I tried to check out Portoโ€™s main tourism site but it only shows art gallery openings. Is there a calendar that features people meeting by interest groups? (Yoga, young professionals, etc)
I know nothing about football and thought he was Brazilian
isn't the Madeira airport called C. Ronaldo? Also I think there's a giant statue of him there, correct me if wrong
Meetup and Facebook
The real Ronaldo is Brazilian
I'm the opposite, I first heard about Madeira because C. Ronaldo is from there ๐Ÿ˜‚
Yes. Same here.
I think everyoneโ€™s looking for that ;D
Yeah ๐Ÿ˜…
The Azores are not a nomad hotspot but I guess that some nomads do visit. In terms of trails, there is a lot of beautiful trails to do I just think it is a good idea not to do them alone for safety reasons.
๐Ÿ›ฌ lpvzcr just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น Porto, #portugal
on the other hand, it's pretty, nice beaches (with surf), the train takes you into lisbon in < 30 mins and accommodation seems to be a bit cheaper/student oriented
cascais cheaper?

not sure weโ€™re talking about the same place โ€ฆ
Hey, what's the situation with local covid restrictions in Portugal? Bars and clubs are open until 2am right? Any requirements for entry into restaurants and clubs etc?
dont know about clubs but to eat inside restaurants you need to show a EU digital certificate(or some equivalent), not always enforced, but most of the time it is
Thanks! What about the prices for the testing (since I'm still u vaccinated)?
Antigen test in pharmacy (with the certificate) is around 15โ‚ฌ.

To to go to restaurants it's enough to do the 2โ‚ฌ self test.
Porto or Lisbon this fall, which would you choose and why?
Lisbon (Caparica).
good weather, surf, beach, slow life, close to Lisbon for the occasional city trip
I'm in Porto right now and was in Lisbon for a week only, so I don't know much, but based on immediate impression Porto has a nicer, more laid back feel, Lisbon has more things to do & see tho, also pretty decent Brazilian food which I was missing as it's not that common in Europe
So based on very little I prefer Porto so far but I'd assume Lisbon is a better option for most people, and maybe as suggested above staying a little bit further away from city center could be a nicer experience
oh god I miss Rodizio!!!
14โ‚ฌ for lunch at fogo de chรฃo was insane
I was in Barcelona for 20 days and totally forgot to go!
Went to a couple of Argentinian though ๐Ÿ˜‰
Why not both?
dewmvgheeytu Iโ€™ll only be in portugal for 2 months and want to book monthly stays to get cheaper accommodation. Trying to figure out If should stay in one place the whole time or not
๐Ÿ›ฌ wppsli just arrived in Sintra, #portugal
๐Ÿ›ฌ bcvurzrxuy just arrived in โ›ต๏ธ Lisbon, #portugal
In that caseโ€ฆIโ€™d do 1 month in each place. Love both citiesโ€ฆthough Porto is definitely more chill
I love Porto with all my heart... but the weather in Porto during fall/winter is much worse compared to south of Portugal.

A lot of rain. Temperature is not too cold but many houses don't have heaters at all.

So if the outside temperature is 15C then the inside temperature will be 15C as well.
I'm pitching up in Lisbon for the rest of the year, likely with a weekend break to Porto. The extra winter heat was enough to convince me!
