Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Hi Folks,

If you are moving your Personal Belongings to Portugal within the First year, is it necessary to make a list of everything for the Customs officers?

Thanks, MTB.

I moved here from Canada. I had to provide a list for the international shipping company with every single item I was packing. I had to number all the boxes and the list had to indicate what was in each box and the approximate value. But if you're using a shipping company they should tell you exactly how they want the list to be. I don't know if it is the same for all companies or if things have changed since I've moved here.
