My wife and I have been interested in moving to Portugal for over a year now and had questions about different locations, weather, culture, costs and logistics of moving. Finding Expats Portugal has helped us remove so much of the uncertainty we had when starting our research. We had a meeting with Gerry who was so kind and patient as we asked a barage of questions. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I can’t recommend this site enough!! Thank you.

I love Expats Portugal–except for navigating your website. I just watched the webinar about buying property in Portugal. Excellent!

However, at the very end, Gerry kindly said that we would have to use the link in the chat part of the webinar to get to the Dream Team. I found the link, turned away for just a few seconds, and Zoom deleted the link along with all the rest of the webinar. I have spent a quarter of an hour trying to get to the Dream Team. NO LUCK!! Please make this easier! I’ll still give you a five star rating, although getting around your website is not up to it.

Response from Expats Portugal

Thank you for your kind comments Linda.

We did manage to get you on that particular webinar once we knew the problem and we trust we resolved your issue for future webinars in our subsequent email exchange. As mentioned, the key is to RSVP in advance of the webinars and you will receive the link by email.

An Incredible Resource - Saves Time and Money

We have recently begun looking at residential properties in the Algarve region of Portugal. Our entrance into the opportunity came with a “close encounter” with a specific property. It seemed there was so much we needed to know, and so fast. I took the decision to join Expats Portugal and had a meeting with Gerry. His advice was worth its weight in gold. Seriously. His resources are of platinum quality. We ended up not purchasing the original property, but are now armed with extremely valuable information that will help us make the right choice at the right time. Now that I have some breathing room, I look forward to community interaction to learn from other expats and to share my learnings as I go forward. What a great resource this site is for people on this same journey! Thank you!!

When I first started thinking about a move to Portugal, I had no idea of what I was doing. On the internet, I read a lot posts about things like VSF, SNS, NIF, and a host of acronyms associated with moving there. It was, to say the least, overwhelming. I stumbled upon the Expats Portugal website and it has exposed me to a wealth of information and resources. In addition, EP has a number of business relationships which cover all aspects of emigrating. If it’s something you need to do, EP has a contact who will help you. It’s very reassuring to have this vetted team of resources available. Though the task seems daunting, I am sure EP knows someone who can help me navigate the process. Plus EP’s webinars are great.

Gerry Lawler has been a great help as well. With his calm demeanor and knowledge of the ins and outs, I’m beginning to believe, if my wife and I decide to take the plunge, we just might make it.

We’ve been researching a move to Europe for 5 years and have looked at and followed several expat sites. Yours is by far the best I’ve encountered and the most informative. I’ve also found it to be trustworthy. Thank you for what you do.

I have spent most of this year working on moving to Portugal from the US. The process is complicated and confusing (and stressing). Until finding Expats Portugal, I wasted months of my time and money on attorneys who claimed expertise, but were not able to advise me.

Expats Portugal is an astounding concept that brings together companies and advisors who are experts in the fields that insure a successful move to Portugal, and are willing to and capable of fielding

the endless questions we have about making such an important transition.

Hats off to Carl and Gerry and Jacqui, and Gilda (EI), and Carolina (EI), who are helping me bring my dream to fruition!

You are all a delight to work with.

Expats Portugal, your webinars are extraordinary–informative and (surprisingly) FUN!

Thank you!

Been a tough few months as my wife suffered a stroke on 14th Feb and I thought we might have to tear up all the plans.

Thankfully I got her to hospital in time and she is making a marvelous recovery, plans were delayed by a few months but this is the weekend of the big move.

Could never have got the visa over the line without Expats and EI.

Really do owe you and the team great thanks and a few beers when time is right.

looking forward to some decent weather and a new life style in retirement.

An overwhelming move being made possible by Expats Portugal and their network of recommended professionals lovingly referred to as the Dream Team. Started researching a move to Portugal about 18 months ago. Since then, we’ve worked with Daniel Reis (Reis and Pellicano), Cristina and Beatriz (E!), and Ben (Spartan FX). Also had consultations via Zoom or multiple emails with Luis (Global International Relocation), Nuno (Winsurance), Michael (Serenity), Jacqueline (Mortgage Direct), and the team at ACP for legalization of a vehicle for import to Portugal. Every single individual was kind, extremely knowledgeable and patient. This is an overwhelming process. Planning is essential. These professionals understand that we need hand holding during this process. NEVER a disappointment. Candidly, I’m shocked at the breadth of knowledge and handholding that they do and are willing to provide. Later this year will mark my second renewal. I plan on staying a member during my entire residency in Portugal. The weekly Zoom/YouTube live webinar alone is worth the membership as new information is shared and there often are ideas useful to daily life in Portugal. A special shout out to Gerry Lawler. He too has been exceptional with knowledge and ideas.
