Moving your personal belongings to Portugal

July 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm WEST


What you need to consider

Moving is stressful, even if it’s just down the road! Moving hundreds of miles across borders, to 1000s of miles across continents is incredibly exciting, but unfortunately, it also comes with a minefield of regulations, paperwork and logistics.

We are fortunate to have shipping specialists Global International Relocation with us to offer their expertise on this important matter and answer your questions about moving your personal belongings to Portugal from locations worldwide.

Some of the points we will be looking at include:
– Rules regarding import duty and taxes in Portugal.
– How to save and reduce costs when shipping.
– Transportation by airfreight, sea freight and trucking of household effects, vehicles, fine arts, and unaccompanied or accompanied pets.
– Is it important if your moving company is based in Portugal?
– What items should you insure?
– And who can you call if something goes awry!?

Supporting the mobility of expatriates, diplomats, military personnel and their families, Global International Relocation have already helped over 11,000 start their new life abroad or return home. They are the most certified company operating in this sector in Portugal and the first Portuguese company from few around the world to obtain the FIDI FAIM PLUS certificate, the highest graded international certificate.
