My wife and I are considering the D7 visa. I will have to return every few months to the US to continue working. I have a question about the D7 residency requirements.
As I read the requirements you are required to be in Portugal for eight months interpolated throughout the year. So for instance a 4 month stay and then a short break and another 4 months stay. I assume we will have NHR status but we will be paying our (higher) taxes in the US.
My question is the following. During that four months stay can you leave Portugal briefly for a short trip to say… Seville or Barcelona? Would ground or air travel be different? I’m not trying to get out of residency requirements but I’d like to have the chance to go watch a football match in another country once in awhile.
