There are many reasons why many people decide to move to Portugal. The first is the desire to obtain a residence permit or even citizenship of a country that is part of the European Union, because subsequently it is much easier to travel to other regions of the Schengen zone. The second is a mild and warm climate. The country is located on the ocean, so there are a lot of recreation areas. It is also worth noting attractive prices for real estate in Portugal, and the ease of processing transactions. Food, clothing and all sorts of services are also cheaper here than in most European countries.
Another important plus is that Portugal is open to foreign migrants. Visitors here are provided with very affordable conditions for obtaining a residence permit. Additionally, for the first 10 years a resident of another country does not have to pay taxes on the earnings that he receives outside of Portugal.
