I am from the UK, 67 years old and have been living in Spain for several years. Within the next 7 weeks I intend to relocate to Portugal. It seems that I can move to Portugal by road with no problem and stay for a maximum of 90 days. Within that period I must register for my initial residency at a tax office (Financas) or public service office (Loja de Cidadao). Is it the case that the documents needed are :-
Proof Of Identity - UK Passport
Address In Portugal - Rented Accommodation - Rental Agreement Document?
I have not had a UK address for years so I cannot get a GHIC card. How much of a problem is this? Some folk suggest that it could be possible to get a S1 document from the UK but how is that done? Some have said that the public service office will resource the S1 from the UK if the Proof Of Identity and Address In Portugal are supplied to them. Some have said that the
public service office in some towns will grant the Initial Residency document having seen only Proof Of Identity and Address In Portugal.
Please advise. What was the minimal documentation that succeeded for you and in which town was this?
