In 2019 Portugal was ranked, by The InterNations Expat Insider Survey, as the country with the best quality of life due to its temperate climate, affordable properties, safety and cultural history. It is a Mecca for family immigration & relocation, with many child inclusive local outings and activities, as well as many top international schools and universities with excellent track records and reputations. Portugal caters to the retirement population due to the low cost of living, from rentals to fresh local produce. You will also find a budding expat community of digital nomads who run online businesses from Portugal with low living costs, great internet quality and a network of co-working spaces in the country’s main cities. English operates as a means of communication across Portugal, decreasing the difficulties associated with cultural assimilation and the country has recently become a refuge for those seeking a more eco-conscious and sustainable lifestyle. From culturally enriched capitals to picturesque coastal villages, there is no reason not to create your dream life in Portugal.

What our Consult Clients have to say

Dear David, thank you so much for the assistance and professional service I received from you during my immigration process to Portugal. If it was not for your sound advice, I could have made a disastrous choice as to which country to relocate to, given the technical nature of immigration laws and how they are applied to foreigners. The support I received from you while dealing with the local officials was also very beneficial. Thanks for going the extra mile!

I was hesitant to take this big step and apply for citizenship through descent, but I took the plunge and paid for an appointment with Consult Immigration. I am so happy I did this. David and Ines answered all my questions and were extremely helpful with their extensive knowledge of the process and they asked questions for me that opened my mind to many other possibilities that would lead me to my new destination. I really liked both of them and I felt they truly earned my trust. Great service. I got so much more out of our meeting than I expected. Nice surprise!

David, Pina and his team at Consult assisted me in my residency permit application for Mallorca, Spain through their tireless efforts in SA and Spain, from initial interest through to making appointments with the relevant authorities in Palma and were highly knowledgeable and patient throughout the process. Highly recommended!

We would like to thank you once again for your very professional assistance in making this move possible. Your support during the process in South Africa was invaluable and your associates here in Portugal were very professional in dealing with the local procedures. This would be a daunting process without professional help and we can strongly recommend your services to anybody interested in relocating to Portugal.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with David at Consult and have been highly impressed with his professionalism. Pina, his partner in Spain, has also been extremely helpful and prompt to reply. I would highly recommend their immigration services to anyone looking to have the bureaucracy streamlined.

Simone Bishop

Consult Immigration assisted my husband and I with our residency application for Spain last year, and I can honestly say that I don't know how we would have achieved it without their assistance. There was always clear communication and we were kept up to speed on where we were in the application process, right through to our appointments in Spain and the approval of our residency. I highly recommend Consult Immigration.
