The NHR transition period - 2024

The government in Portugal ended NHR for new applicant, but to "protect the reasonable expectations of people who already started the process of moving to Portugal", people can still apply and obtain NHR in 2024 if they can prove one of a number of links to Portugal.

The following groups of people can still apply for NHR if they move to Portugal in 2024:

1. Those who have promise of an employment contract signed until December 31, 2023, whose duties must take place within Portugal. The employment itself does not need to take place in 2023.

2. Lease or another contract granting right of accommodation in Portugal concluded until October 10, 2023; Note - we interpret this as including a "comodato" - an agreement for free dwelling.

3. Reservation contract or promissory contract for the acquisition of real estate concluded by October 10, 2023;

4. Enrolment or registration for dependents, at a school in Portugal, completed by October 10, 2023;

5. Residence visa or residence permit valid until December 31, 2023; 

6. Procedure, initiated by December 31, 2023, of granting a residence visa or residence permit, with the competent entities, in accordance with the current legislation applicable to immigration matters, namely through the request for an appointment or actual appointment for submission of the request for the granting of a residence visa or residence permit or, also, by submitting the request for the granting of a residence visa or residence permit.

7. Members of the households of people who meet the criteria above.
