Temporary usage of a foreign register car

Would anyone know what is the red tape for using foreign registerd car for 7-8  months in Portugal and then removing it from the country.

Apart of hoping for the best that nobody would ask, what is the legitimate way of handing this.

Cheers

If you're Portuguese resident, which you are (or should be) if you're in the country for 7-8 months, then you can only drive a foreign registered car if you've begun the process of importing it - regardless of how long the car has been in the country.

There are some exceptions to the above.

 

If you're on a limited duration stay in Portugal as a student, or on a placement or on a diplomatic or other official mission, you can be given dispensation for the vehicle to be in the country for the duration of your stay.
