I understand that as an expat I need to get a residency card after living in Portugal for 6 months. Anyone know what I need to do?

You haven't mentioned your nationality or what type of residency you're applying for.  It's best to contact SEF directly, or look through the documentation they provide to outline requirements based on visa scheme.
