I’m pretty certain you need an NIF number. Why not just get one?

Hello @tortuga and a warm welcome.

I agree with @lincolnbaggie you will need a NIF number to open an account. Please take a look at the finance section of our site via this link.

This will give you a starting point.

@tortuga It's actually very simple to get an NIF number (assuming you are in Portugal) and doesn't commit you to anything to do with tax/IRS in Portugal as long as you are not permanently resident here and have a foreign home address you can give Financas (which is presumably the case as you haven't got an NIF at the moment). You will need one for practically anything you want to do here anyway (buying a car, renting/buying a property, opening a bank account etc).

Hi @tortuga You can open a bank account of blackcatcard online with only your selfie and ID. At that time i didn't have NIF as well but was in an urgent need of european account. So i applied to blackcatcard. The account is activated immediately and the card will be sent to your address by international mail.
