Ask Our Expats | Expats Portugal

Moving to Portugal can be an exciting, emotional and sometimes stressful proposition

Introducing our friendly and carefully selected Ask Our Expats team

Imagine connecting with someone who has already made the move, lives here permanently and shares similar interests to you. This person can help you through the process of learning the ropes on everyday matters such as shopping, getting around, healthcare, places to visit, activities, making friends, eating out, etc. The list is endless.

Now imagine you can connect with this person, ask all your questions and learn from them on a wide range of topics regarding lifestyle in Portugal. You will also gain a new friend.

We have great people that are happy to share their knowledge with you on a one to one basis either via phone, online or in person meetings.

You can book for short one hour sessions or longer sessions that can be spread over a period of time. You can also book with different members of the team as required. The fees include time for the team member to prepare and follow up on each session.

How it works…

Your Expat is here to help you explore and find out more about your potential lifestyle in Portugal.

Once you have selected and paid for your package, you will receive a digital questionnaire to complete. This will help your Expat prepare the right type of information for your consultation.

Three and 6 hour packages will be broken into half hourly or hourly slots.

A mutually appropriate time will be set for you to meet with your Expat. Connect via Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or Messenger calls. In person tours available upon request.
