With the increase of remote work opportunities in the world, there are many professions in which it is possible to live as a digital nomad.

Portugal is one of the best ranked countries in the world to live this reality, given, among other factors, its accessible cost of living, climate, beaches, safety and ease of travel, political stability and efficient health services.

With the update to the law on foreigners, Law 23/2007, it has become possible for these professionals to have their own visa since 30th October. In effect, this legislative alteration allows citizens from third countries (outside the EU) to obtain
(i) a temporary stay visa for a period of up to one year, or
(ii) a residence visa for a longer period, for subordinate or independent professional practice, provided remotely to a natural or legal person, with domicile or head office outside national territory.
Visas must be applied for at the consular posts or sections of the applicant’s place of residence.

Applicants may exercise their activity in a subordinate or independent manner, but in either case they must prove their fiscal residence and that their average monthly income in the previous three months was higher than four minimum wages in Portugal, currently € 705 x 4 = € 2,820 and for 2023 this figure will be €3,040 taking into account the expected update of the minimum wage. The visa applicants will also have to prove the employment relationship or the provision of services, depending on the case, with subordinated workers having to prove the employment relationship by presenting the contract or promise of employment contract or statement of the employer and independent workers by proving the establishment of a company or a contract to provide services to one or more entities.
