Handling the housing

Hi guys.

As you probably know, in order to get a D7 visa, you must have arranged for housing BEFORE you arrive in Portugal. 

Would any of you like to share your experience handling that?

I'm surprised no one has replied to your request.  I sent you a private message.

We resolved our housing situation by working with Ei!.  They have more than one solution for the housing/D7 visa issue.

The alternative solutions are to rent (site unseen) or find a sponsor who will let you stay in a guest house etc.  I'm not sure about all the legal requirements for the latter option.

Hi ya!  Got the PM, thanks!

I figured it was something along those lines and was planning on working with Ei! or Savvy Cat.  I was just interested in real-life experiences of people who had made the transition already.

Seems to me that would be interesting to read about and also would be helpful for other members and lurkers on the forums.
