Hi CarlIM. Just wanted to clarify, does this apply to people who only just got their EUCC before 31 Dec. 2020? I've visited the portal but I just wanted to double check. Many thanks.

@thr238 I think that's the case, pre-Brexit Brits in PT. But also maybe a few that are included in the transition too...

Hi Carl, thank you very much for your reply. I also have a question regarding Faro (town). Is it a nice place to live and invest?  Faro was not mentioned during the last online event. I have seen some very nice brand new apartments in Montenegro this week. What about 'quality of life' in Faro? Kind regards,

@omena True! Did you reach out to Prosecco Peggy? I really like Faro town. On the two or three occasions I've been there, it's been a great day out and not as busy or too touristy, as one might expect.

Hi Carl,

I registered to swap my registration just after it opened

I am just waiting and have heard nothing else

Anything happening on this front or should I just wait?

Cheers
