Nearly 400 000 foreigners are living in Portugal. Unlike previous years, more individuals are coming from European Union countries.
A recent report by the Immigration and Border Service in Portugal reveals that more foreigners are choosing to live in Portugal. Nationals from Portuguese speaking countries, like Angola and Brazil, continue to represent a great part of foreign residents in Portugal, but their numbers are decreasing, while residents from other countries of origin are growing. France, UK, Spain and China are the ones with higher growing rates. At a slower rate, yet increasing, is also the number of American residents in Portugal.
According to the report, friendly taxation for non habitual residents, as well as being perceived as a safe country are some of the reasons to attract foreigners.
