Hello all 🙂
I'm currently in Lisbon setting up a rental agreement. I'll go back to the UK in a week to attend a long term visa appointment at the Portuguese consulate in Manchester. I'm also getting my NIF and then a Portuguese bank account. I'll put cash in the bank account and also have rental income and income from remote working.
My question is this... Bearing in mind it could take two months to get the visa would it be possible to return to Lisbon and stay there as a tourist until the consulate requests my passport? I'll be paying rent for the place in Lisbon so it would make sense.
Many thanks for your help!
