Amount requirement In Portugal Bank acct?
Has anyone heard this or experienced any issues with the amount they needed to have in the Portugal bank account??
We’ve been working with EI(Gilda Perierra). Please don’t quote me on this but our understanding is you want to have the equivalent of 2yrs Portugal minimum wage (about 800 euro/month x 24 months) for the primary applicant (yourself) plus 50% of that amount for a spouse and each child. Any amount over that will only help you. - Joey & Swara
Ei! Recommends 35,000 Euros for Konni and I.
The amounts given in the other responses are correct as well. The minimum is 12 months of Portuguese minimum wage +50% for a spouse.
However, since the residency permit is how renewed after 2 years instead of 1, a recommendation of 24 months makes more sense.
The more you have, the more likely you are to get approved, is my understanding.
The 12 months of minimum wage would be really hard to live on for most people.
i've spoken to Gilda several times and she's very gung-ho n positive . . . my programme to emigrate has been stuck several times due to Corona but she kept up the support n said she's never failed yet, so thats something to cheer about . . .
