How It Feels Living in Portugal, a Former of the Great Global Empires

How It Feels Living in Portugal, a Former of the Great Global Empires

Portugal is a small Mediterranean country where tradition and modernity combine in perfect harmony. This country is well-known for its historical cities with medieval era vibes, romantic coastlines around the Atlantic Ocean, and pleasant climates. In terms of public services, medicine and education are well developed, and residents are also given tax breaks. Furthermore, according to Live and Invest Overseas 2020, the country was named the best place in the world to retire, particularly in the Algarve region.

Here are some key points we highlighted to help you learn more about living and working in Portugal: People and Culture The majority of today's Portuguese population is a result of the centuries-long mixing of people from various regions, including Iberians, Romans, Germanic tribes, Moors, Jews, and so on. With Lisbon as the most populous city, the capital city has a population of around two million people. Most Portuguese people are warm, friendly, and easygoing.

People in the country's north are more formal and conservative. Southerners, on the other hand, tend to be more casual and relaxed. Despite the fact that Portuguese is their first language, everyone understands some English. However, Portuguese is widely used in government agencies. So, if you intend to relocate here, you will need to be conversant in Portuguese at a basic level.

Because their history is so connected with the religion, roughly 80% of Portuguese identified as Roman Catholic. Folklore and superstition are also part of Portuguese culture. The unofficial symbol of Portugal, The Barcelos Rooster (Portuguese Rooster) can be found in a variety of forms (ceramic pots, embroidered towels, or aprons) in every local shop. A rooster with a bright red comb with hearts and flowers is a national symbol that represents honesty, integrity, trust, and honor. It is said to represent the Portuguese love of life.

Furthermore, unlike many other large cities in Europe, a typical day in Portugal is slow and quiet. Living Costs In comparison to other European Union countries, life in Portugal is relatively cheap. It is one of Western Europe's most affordable countries. For example, renting a city apartment in Lisbon or another well-known area such as the Algarve can be done for less than โ‚ฌ600. A single person's monthly costs in Portugal are estimated to start at โ‚ฌ1,418. Portugal has a high level of secondary and higher education that is recognized throughout the European Union. For registered foreigners in the country, their schools are funded by the state and start at โ‚ฌ950-โ‚ฌ1,250 per year for universities. Besides, as it spends about 9% of its GDP per year on healthcare, Portugal has a high-quality standard. If you are a foreigner living or working in Portugal, you will typically be eligible to access medical services at public hospitals. As for taxes, foreigners with a residence permit can obtain the Non-Habitual Residence (NHR) tax status.

It will allow them to reduce the amount of income tax payable in Portugal, approximately 20 โ€“ 48% reduction. This tax exemption could be granted for up to 10 years. Working Culture In business culture, the Portuguese rely mainly on relationships and networking. Traditional companies usually have a vertical hierarchy, so it is an important thing to show respect to superiors and always use titles like Seรฑhor or Seรฑhora when speaking to colleagues. Since a typical lifestyle in Portugal is quiet, residents are in no hurry and can be unpunctual. As for working hours, it starts from 9 am to 6 pm.

Although the country ranks well in terms of life quality, it performs poorly in career prospects. Unlike its many neighboring countries, foreign who do move here for employment can find the transition to be difficult. It is better to secure a job before the relocation. However, those who want to work in Portugal can use the word-of-mouth method to find an opportunity. Because sometimes many positions are marketed through social connections rather than being advertised. Foods There is a wide variety of dishes that are deeply influenced by its region across the country.

Pasteis de Belem, an original egg tart from Jeronimos Monastery, or Bifana, a barbecue pork sandwich that can be found in Lisbon. Moreover, with such beautiful beaches to catch fish from, Portugal is also famous for its seafood dishes. As the Portuguese celebrate Carnaval every year, eating heavy meats dishes like Cozido ร  Portuguesa (Portuguese stew), Feijoada (bean stew), and Papas de Sarrabulho (a type of meat porridge) is common.

Portuguese also love wines. Its northerly Douro River has been the home of the countryโ€™s beloved fortified wine for hundreds of years. Overall, Portugal is one of the dazzling countries that is full of spectacular landscapes and unique cultural heritage. Read more about the essential things that are needed here if you are interested in living and working in this beautiful country.
