Did you know?

Over the past few years, Portugal has seen a strong increase in foreigners immigrating due to the attractive cost of living, friendly people and a great quality of life. It is now reported that out of a total population of around 10 million, more than 900,000 Expats are living in Portugal.

Expats Portugal was started in 2005 as an English language website and forum to help create a sense of community amongst Expats and people who have permanently immigrated to Portugal.

The site has since gone on as a source of valuable information for people relocating to or currently living in Portugal. You will find:

  • An active forum where you can post and answer questions and meet new friends
  • English-friendly Business Directory to find products and services that speak your language
  • Events calendar to find online and offline webinars, festivals, meetups and entertainment
  • Real Estate for sale or rent to suit all budgets and tastes

In addition to our community members who are already living in Portugal, many of our members are from the United Kingdom, United States of America, Ireland, Canada, Netherlands, South Africa and Australia.
