The Moving to Portugal Show & Seminars are designed to answer all the questions you may have about how to organise your move to Portugal, - whether you intend to run your business from there, invest there, retire there or simply spend several months a year there to escape the English climate.
Alongside the seminars some carefully chosen members of the Chamber will also be exhibiting, giving visitors the opportunity to ask questions about any potential move to Portugal.
Exhibitors will include estate agents from all regions of Portugal so visitors can see the different property options available, and representatives from some of Portugal’s best established resorts and golf courses.
Confirmed exhibitors include: Andre Jordan Group and Lisbon Green Valley; Global Citizens Solutions; Blevins Franks; Currencies 4 You; Fine & Country Algarve; Ombria Resort; Portugal Sotheby's International Realty; Quinta do Lago; Remax Platina; TPMC; Troia Resort; Vale de Lobo; Vilamoura World; Your Private Property, Abacus Gibraltar, UCI Bank and Mortgages; Edge International lawyers, Just Madeira, Palmares Resort and Kronos Homes.

The seminar will then be repeated at 3pm and 6.30pm. The seminars are free to attend but due to their popularity it is necessary to reserve your place in advance.
For more information please visit www.movingtoportugal.org.uk
Within each seminar there will be 6 short (15 minute) presentations from specialists on the following subjects:
where to buy - where are the property investment hotspots?
the legal aspects of buying a property in Portugal
how to plan your tax and financial affairs in advance of the move
how to structure mortgage finance
how Portugal’s Non Habitual Residence (NHR) tax programme works
aspects of healthcare, residency and later living in Portugal
how to plan your currency needs
Alongside the exhibitors, staff from all the companies presenting at the seminars will be present throughout the day on their stands to answer your questions and to talk in private with you.
Come along and meet us all, try some Portuguese wine, and plan your move towards a sunnier lifestyle!
For many years, UK nationals wanting to retire to a more relaxing lifestyle in sunnier climes have chosen to move to Portugal.
From the golf courses, beaches and restaurants in the Algarve to the vineyards and culture of Porto, Lisbon and the north, there is a home and way of life to suit everyone.
Moreover, UK nationals moving to Portugal can now benefit from Portugal’s very favourable 'non-habitual residence' tax rules during their first ten years in Portugal.
About the Seminars
Our seminars focus on some of the practical aspects UK nationals should consider ahead of a move such as:
Where should I move to?
What do I need to be aware of when buying property?
How does the Portuguese health system work?
How do the 'non habitual residence' tax rules work and would I qualify?
How will I be taxed?
What are the implications of Brexit?
How can I minimise the impact of a falling pound?

An Easymigrate team consisting of Emma and Cyrus are going to the UK for the Down Under Live Expo starting Saturday 10am October 12th 2019 until Sunday afternoon 3pm October 13th 2019.
Down Under Live is the UK’s number one event for emigrating to Australia. This event is the biggest and best for jobs and skilled migration downunder. Come talk to EasyMigrate and we will complete a FREE Australian Migration Assessment & Points Test for you at the shows.
Thousands of UK families dream of relocating to Australia and for good reasons such as job opportunities, efficient healthcare system, fantastic weather, excellent education services, unspoilt nature and laid-back lifestyle to name only a few.
Unfortunately, for many, the dream of living “Down Under” turns into a long, complicated waiting game. The Majority of British migrants come to Australia through the skilled migrant pathway. At first, it seems a straight forward process 1. Check your eligibility; 2. Submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) 3. Wait for an Invitation and 4. Apply for your visa. For some, it is that easy, but as many people are discovering waiting on an invitation that may never come is crushing.
Skilled Migration visas are by far the most common migration pathway to Australia. These visas allow foreign nationals who are successful in their respective occupations to live in Australia as permanent residents. To be eligible for a skilled visa pathway, you must meet certain criteria like your occupation must be on one of the skill shortages lists, and you must have scored a minimum number of points. Points are based on age, (and they decrease the older a person is), qualifications, work experience, an English test and State-based points system depending on the kinds of skilled workers each state requires.
From July 2018 the “pass mark” has increased from 60 to 65 points. In addition to this, the competition/the number of applicants means that for many, it is unlikely that they will get an invitation unless they have 70+ points. Perth-based migration agent Cyrus Mistry said getting enough points was particularly difficult for older people with trade skills, which he said are the occupations most in-demand in some areas of Australia. Mr Mistry says that he regularly sees UK applicants on waitlists for up two years. Anthony Kelly from Northern Ireland was one of these people. Mr Kelly said he had enough points to apply for an EOI back in August 2017. He lodged his EOI, and in his mind, he would be in Australia by August 2018, and he could not have been more wrong. Anthony had sixty points which were the minimum back in 2017. He received an email last month (August 2019) from the Australian Skill Select department telling him that his EOI had expired. Unfortunately thousands of people who lodge EOI’s receive this email after waiting two very long years. Fortunately for Mr Kelly, he is now in Australia as he had a regional 489 visa granted through the Northern Territory January 2019. Mr Kelly said that he wanted to be in Perth, Western Australia as his brothers and their families are located there, but when he realised he might never get an invitation he decided to look at other options. Mr Kelly said that he considered giving up on Australia entirely and was going to try for New Zealand, but Mr Mistry advised him to apply for Northern Territory. Mr Kelly said he lodged his EOI to the Northern Territory Government September 2018; he received an invitation October 2018 and visa was granted January 2019. The 489 visa is a provisional visa for four years and provided Mr Kelly meets the conditions of living in the Northern Territory for one year and working in the sate for two years he can then apply for permanent residency. Mr Kelly said he is happy at the outcome and as he sees it he could be still in the UK waiting for an invitation, but he is in Australia and has nearly completed his first year in the Northern Territory.
Regional Australia Pathways
The current Australian Morrison Government are tackling the impact of increasing population in main cities like Sydney and Melbourne by promoting Regional Australia as more assessable migration option. Designated area migration agreement (DAMA) applications have increased, with Northern Territory, The Goldfields Western Australia, Great South Coast Victoria, AdelaideCity and Regional South Australia, Orana New South Wales, Far North Queensland all have DAMA’s in place. Mr Mistry said a DAMA labour agreement is between the Australian Government and endorsed employers operating within an eligible region. Under DAMA employers in the designated areas experiencing skills and labour shortages can sponsor skilled and semi-skilled overseas workers.
The Goldfields region in Western Australia currently has an active DAMA agreement covering 73 occupations. The City of Kalgoorlie – Boulder, which is located just under 600km from Perth, want migrants to come live in there community. Kalgoorlie- Boulder’s is a family orientated, small-town “old-school Australian” lifestyle. According to CEO of the City Kalgoorlie – Boulder has estimated 1,500 job vacancies in a range of industries including mining, engineering, construction, childcare, hospitality and healthcare, among others.
Earlier this year the Australian government announced two new regional (provisional) visas Subclass 491 Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa which will have 14,000 places to allocate each year and Subclass 494 Skilled Employer-Sponsored which will have 9000 places to allocate each year, these will come into effect November 2019.
Mr Kelly who migrated to regional Australia said that people should not be discouraged by regional Australia but see it as an opportunity to fulfil their dream of living in Australia. He said I am nearly one year in and it has gone so quick and after two years if I want to then I go back to Perth. Fiona Ward who migrated to Kalgoorlie – Boulder eight years ago said she thought she would prefer Sydney or Melbourne, but they were too big and fast-paced. She has made Kalgoorlie home and runs a successful construction company with her husband; he is also from the UK.
If you would like to find out more about regional pathways to Australia Mr Cyrus Mistry will be attending both Birmingham (Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October) and London (Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October) Down Under Live Expos. Cyrus is the founder of EasyMigrate who has been specialising in Australian migration for twenty years.
Cyrus will be joined by Sword Recruitment who working with regional business in Australia to fill positions. Sword Recruitment will supply a list of jobs already available in Australia.

If you have spent way too long thinking about what you might want to do but still find yourself back at the same desk every Monday morning then this workshop is for you.
Get a deeper understanding of yourself, your drivers and talents
Develop tangible ideas and possible options for your new career
Get individual attention (a maximum of 12 people take part)
Get a whole day to hatch an escape plan to start doing the work you love
Join a focused, practical and inspiring workshop
Set in a beautiful location in Richmond, London and working with a small group of 12 people, this is an intimate, high quality experience.
With a whole day to focus on you and your work, it’s a chance to take a step back and really get stuck in.
Experienced career coach Sonia Lakshman or Sarah Dawrant will take you through an expertly conceived process designed to help you deepen your understanding of yourself, then building on ideas and options from there.
We’ll also look at how to get past common blocks and challenges and pack the session with advice on how to get going, create opportunity and open doors. You’ll find yourself in the company of people who feel like you do and want to finally change that. Because of the small group size you get individual attention to get past the areas where you personally feel stuck.
There's pre work too, to help you prepare and get the most out of the day.If you've never really known what you’ve wanted to do, that you’ve fallen into what you do now, that you once loved your work but don’t anymore, or that you’re just not quite sure how to make the life you want happen – but desperately want to – you need to be at this workshop!
"Excellent on all counts. Really useful, great energy and style, fantastic value for money. It’s given me real direction, has helped me process my thoughts, and realise what I want and the opportunities I have."
Lindsay Hargreaves - Teacher
We break down the two big work questions
WHAT is it that you really want to do?
HOW do you make it happen?
We work intensively – there’s prework so you’re prepared; then we delve deeper, help you understand yourself and your needs, explore options and ideas and establish next steps; as well as getting thorny subjects like cash, confidence and confusion off your chest and on the table. You leave with clarity, inspiration, workable ideas AND with an action plan to get on with.
Superb at the ‘What next’ bit. I’ve got some really useful key things to action immediately. Ten out of ten!"

I’m amazed and happy at the result from the workshop. I love the idea I’ve come away with as it simply encaptures all my interests / talents / ideas into one concept and that is what I’ve been struggling with for so long. Now I wonder why I hadn’t thought of it before!! Thank you!"

Are ready to get stuck in!
Here's what people have to say about the day...
"The workshop shook things up in the best way possible. I came out excited, inspired with a sense of purpose and motivation. Perhaps most importantly for the long-term I felt as if I knew myself, my aptitudes, strengths and what would fit me best career-wise infinitely better than when I had arrived that morning. Cannot recommend it highly enough!"
Sophie Holborow - Psychotherapist
"It was the perfect location, ideal atmosphere and a small group of like-minded people. My life has become an exciting journey since. I started meeting so many interesting people which seemed unreachable before. I am looking into creating passive income streams, so I can spend more time making my dreams come true. It's been amazing to say the least."
Eddie Porucius - Construction
"Thanks for hosting a great workshop. Loved it. It was a great opportunity to step back from the day job and give serious thought to my own aspirations for a work/life balance.

"I’m a natural cynic and therefore always approach these kind of events with more than a pinch of scepticism. However on this occasion I genuinely feel I have clarity on what I’m good at and the avenues I can explore. Great pace, great activities, lots of inspiration. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the day – 10 out of 10 – thank you!"
Debbie - Lawyer
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is the workshop for?
Anyone who feels stuck workwise and isn’t sure what next. You may have fallen into what you do now or never really known what you wanted to do. Maybe your industry has changed or your commitments have. It could be that you used to enjoy what do but don’t anymore. Or you’re returning to work after a break and aren’t sure where to begin. Participants come from a wide range of backgrounds and ages, all with one thing in common: they all really enjoy want to enjoy what they do. You’ll find you’re not alone – and, in fact, in stimulating company.
What can I expect to get out of the day?
It’s an intensive session and we pack a lot in! You’ll have the chance to step back and to really address your working life in a focused way. You leave with a deeper understanding of yourself, freshly thought through ideas and options, equipped with how-to’s, first steps and connections. Plus lots of stimulation, inspiration and motivation.
I’m not sure whether to come to a workshop or to have one to one coaching?
It depends what you are trying to address. If, for example, you need help with a job search or how to position yourself in the work marketplace, one-to-one coaching would be preferable (see 'Coaching' link at the bottom of this page for more information). Or, if you also want very concentrated individual help then again one-to-one would be a better solution. Otherwise this workshop will really help you address things, get clarity and get going. If you later feel you’d still like one to one to hone things further and to help you get there, you can always bolt on individual coaching too.
Is the venue wheelchair accessible?
Yes, it is. We do need to make special arrangements, so please let us know at the time of booking.
I can't make the date listed. What are your next available dates?
Please click the 'Can't make this date?' link underneath the booking button on this page and leave your details. We'll then let you know as soon as we publish the date of the next workshop.

No, we don't. To be honest, we don't normally have drop-outs. If you want to be guaranteed a spot, we recommend you book on the next available workshop shown on this page.
Do you run the workshop on other days?
We run these workshops on Saturdays. If you'd prefer a weeknight, take a look at our London evening workshop, which is currently priced at £85, or if you'd prefer to to take part online, take a look at our online workshop, which is currently priced at £65.
