Departure to Lisbon

Preparing for your move to Lisbon

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Portugal > Lisbon

When you decide to live abroad, you usually need to inform your tax office of the changes. If you keep an address in your previous country you can still pay your owed tax at term. An evidence of tax paid can be demanded. Whatever the situation, we strongly advise you to go to your local tax office and ask for details.

Other things to bear in mind are decisions regarding your house, car and furniture. For those who own a house, it might be prudent to hire a rental agency to ensure that it is rented for the term that you are away. If you're renting an apartment, then make sure you give your vacating notice in time. You'll also need to decide if you want to move your furniture, sell it, store it or rent it along with your house. Lastly, what do you plan to do with your car if you have one? Remember to make your decisions well before your last day in the country.
