Hello everyone,

I am a new member. I am a retired guy for the U.S. I have a question regarding the NHR income regulations. I have a disability pension and it is not taxable, per United States law. The amount of my pension is more than enough to qualify for the NHR visa. The issue is that because my pension is not taxable, I have not been required to file taxes in the U.S. since 2011. I do not have 5 years tax returns to present the Portuguese authorities. Does this disqualify me from applying for an NHR visa? I have emailed the Portuguese embassy, but I have not received a reply. Whom do you suggest I contact, regarding this matte?

Thank you in advance for any assistance you may provide.

Ron

Try contacting VFS Global. When applying from the US you will need to go through them at some point. This is the link to their page for US citizens applying for Portugal.
