Hi all,
We are looking for advice please. We are considering to buy a van in Portugal & which is already registered and insured by the previous owners in Portugal. I am from Germany and my girlfriend is from the Uk and were hoping to register & insure it in Portugal. Can anyone advise us if this is possible without living in the country please?
Β 
The other question would be should I consider to register myself there if we are going on the road anyways?

Thanks for your help, Catrin

Any non resident can buy and register a Portuguese vehicle in their name. The stumbling block would be that you would need a Portuguese address to register it to.

On the road within Portugal, or throughout the EU?

@catrin In which case I can't think of any benefits or advantages open to you, as a German citizen, to register yourself as resident in Portugal.

You will probably need to register with the tax authorities and have a NIF so that they can chase you for annual car tax. To get a NIF you may need to have a tax representative. The rules for this requirement are changing at the moment.
