Study, Work, Live in Portugal

Portugal has become a popular destination for many reasons. Working in Portugal is amongst one of those popular reasons. If you wish to travel to Portugal for work, you may need to apply for a specific Portuguese Work Visa.

Portugal Work Visa for EU residents

If you reside in an EU country or a country that forms part of the European Union, you do not need to apply for a specific visa to work in Portugal. Citizens from these nations are allowed to travel, work and live in Portugal without a visa. However, if you plan to stay in Portugal for more than 3 months, you will need to obtain a Residence Certificate.

Portugal Work Visa For Non EU

If you are a Non-EU/EEA or Swiss citizen, you will most likely need to apply for a Portugal Work Visa to work in Portugal. To be able to do this, you will first need to secure a job in Portugal. Once you have done this, you can start the process of applying for a Portuguese Work Visa.

Your employer needs to apply for a Work Permit at the Portuguese Labour Authorities. The permit will indicate what work you will be doing and where you will be doing that work.

If you decide to relocate or apply for a new job, you need to reapply for a Work Permit.

Those planning to work in Portugal for a longer period, need to apply for a Residence permit.
