Now the Portugal Daily News is passing on this digital nomad income statement here.

"To be eligible, digital nomads must prove that they receive at least €2,820 a month, four times the current value of the national minimum wage, which is €705 (and which should rise to €760 in 2023)."

Is it too much work for journalists to investigate the law and site it?

@jonesdn2020 Well, this is the relevant paragraph in the law :

c) Comprovativo de rendimentos médios mensais auferidos no exercício de atividade profissional subordinada ou independente nos últimos três meses de valor mínimo equivalente a quatro remunerações mínimas mensais garantidas

and I'm going to stick my neck out and say I think the journalists have got it right.

Average monthly income aquired from exercising professional activity over the past 3 months equivalent to 4 times the national minimum wage does mean the measure is per month, to me, although obviously you could meet it with irregular amounts during those 3 months.

@x-camone

It would be nice if the law actually was direct in the requirements. I agree you may be correct. Each time I read the law I second guess myself.

@old-bloke mentioned:

Decreto Regulamentar 4/2022

Artigo 31.º-A

We just have members trying to get in line for this visa and several requirements have not been vetted as you would expect when trying to apply.

@jonesdn2020 As usual, portuguese law is ocasionally ambiguous/badly written...

@antonio_f I am finding it on par with US law. I believe the lawyers that write them want them to be ambiguous enough to support their careers😂

@jonesdn2020 I know you're only joking but I guess it's quite difficult to write concise legalese in a manner that leaves absolutely nothing open to interpretation to whatever audience happens upon it. I'm sure to the legal profession, that particular instance doesn't leave any room for interpretation and I expect (at least some) journalists were briefed accordingly.

In order for it to mean the total of 3 months' income should be equivalent to at least 4 months' worth of national minumum salary, it would have had to make reference to "the sum of", which it doesn't. It just says the average per month over the 3 months should be equivalent to 4 x the monthly national minimum.

@x-camone hmmm, to me it reads as 4 times over 3 months not each month. Otherwise why would they just not have said 4 times each month for 3 months. The way it is written suggests they did it that way rather than saying the required each month for 3 months is 1.33 the average salary, it is neater to state it as 4 times over 3 months.

@blaze451 Because they are recognising that the income may be irregular in amount, hence the reason for taking the 3 month average.

But the average (a single figure) is what they're asking to be compared to the 4 x national minimum per month. If it had been meant to be the sum, the word "average" would be totally redundant.
