Since 2018, our Moving to Portugal Shows and Seminars have been attended by over 7,000 visitors in the UK. As the realities of Brexit and the post-pandemic world begin to bite, and the appeal of a warmer and healthier climate becomes stronger and stronger, we anticipate interest in these events from British consumers will continue to grow.
The Chamber now runs a year-round media and press campaign on the Moving to Portugal theme, with its own dedicated website www.movingtoportugal.org.uk.
Our next Moving to Portugal Show & Seminars in the UK will be held in London, on Thursday 19th October 2023.
Since early 2020 we have also run a series of virtual online conferences and webinars around the theme of Moving to Portugal, alongside our usual programme of live events.
Over 2 million Brits a year visit Portugal and they are the single biggest group of foreign residents in Portugal. Over 48,000 Brits are now officially resident in Portugal with approx. 30,000 more owning property or spending part of each year there.
Moreover, UK nationals moving to Portugal can now benefit from Portugal’s very favourable ‘non-habitual residence’ (NHR) tax rules during their first ten years in Portugal, as well as apply for a range of residents’ visas.

The Show features seminars throughout the day on all aspects of moving your home or business to Portugal, which explain to visitors how to maximise the financial and lifestyle benefits of such a move.
Seminar topics include recent changes to Portugal’s Non-Habitual Tax Regime (NHR), which offers very favourable tax benefits to those moving to Portugal to live and work, plus lots of detail about healthcare, mortgages, tax and wealth planning.
You can also learn more about Portugal’s Golden Visa programme and the various property and investment fund options that qualify for it.
Seminars also cover where and how to buy the perfect property, across all regions of Portugal.
We have a limited number of seats per seminar so please book your seminar place online at www.movingtoportugal.org.uk.
