Hi All,

I love Portugal and would love to move there, I currently live in England and have both British and South African citizenship bt are dreaming of a life in Portugal but in the countryside, rural Portugal especially central Portugal and Silver Coast. I am looking for a live-in jobs if anyone knows of anything please let me know. I am trained as an environmental scientist have some agricultural experience and have been working in UK looking after the grounds of a 12 acre self catering holiday resort as groundkeeper/handyman.

Any info or direction would be helpful

 

Many thanks

Assuming you do not currently hold PT residency, the first hurdle would be obtaining a suitable visa to allow you to work in PT.

@old-bloke thank you, it seems I am allowed 3 months without a visa but it looks like there is a visa that allows you to job hunt for 3 months and when you get a job then you get a work permit.

@janandgaylin 

You're allowed 3 months as a tourist - no right to work.

Changes are in the pipeline to make work visas easier (enter then job hunt), but from what I've read they will only apply to citizens from CPLP member countries.

Until the new law is published and we know definitely that the changes only affect CPLP citizens you'll be subject to the requirements in this link.
