We offer 2 fixed-fee relocation service packages:

Our STANDARD and PREMIUM relocation packages include NIFs, bank account opening, guidance, our most commonly-requested services, plus large discounts on ad hoc services (20% off the housing package and 50% off our lawyer’s contract review when it’s not part of the housing service). Both packages must be initiated with a call booked through the consultation calendar to determine eligibility and to avoid overbooking the team. The consultation fee is deducted from the final invoice if either the STANDARD or PREMIUM service is contracted.

HOUSING SEARCH services are charged separately.

Do you need more than an hour of consulting time?

  • Our CONSULTATION BUNDLE is a service package consisting of a total of 120 minutes (2 hours) of consulting calls. Note that NIFs, bank account openings, and housing searches are not included in this service, the Bundle is a series of timed calls, onlyThe first call is booked directly in its own calendar and the rest is booked manually. The consultation bundle calendar is ideal for those who need more consulting time, and sometimes has openings earlier than the 1-hour consultation calendar. 
Some of our most popular ad hoc services are: HOUSING SEARCH for long-term rentals, importation of household goods, driver’s license exchange, and assistance with vehicle purchases. Please contact us to request the current fee table.
Per-hour billing depends on the specific service and whether the service is handled by a junior (30€/hr), senior (65€/hr), or consultant (100€/hr). Contract reviews by our lawyers are 150€ per contract for the general public (Standard/Premium clients pay discounted rates). Please contact us to inquire.
Fiscal Representation for the NIF (Portuguese tax number) is only offered as part of the STANDARD and PREMIUM services. We do not offer Fiscal Representation as a separate service. However, we can provide referrals for obtaining NIFs remotely. We do not receive compensation for referrals. Bank account openings are only offered as part of the STANDARD and PREMIUM services. It is not offered as a service on its own.
