Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

We are keen to form a small User Group from our members.

The intention is that the group will represent all members and put forward suggestions and ideas that will enhance both the forum and the site in the best interests of the membership. The group will operate separately from the managers and the role for Astrid and myself will be to implement the proposals from the group wherever possible. 

We will set up a private area on the forum for the group to communicate and we will try to arrange occasional face to face meetings with lunch at our expense.

If you would like to be involved or ask questions about this matter, please email Astrid or myself and we will be delighted to hear from you.

We do not see this as a onerous task, nor is location an issue. It is an opportunity for enthusiastic members to have input into the future direction of expatsportugal.com and in particular, to help make the forum more interesting and engaging.

If you are interested or would like more information, it would be helpful to hear from you before the end of February.

Kind regards
