Perhaps now is the time. Portugal at large is an attractive country for ex-pats looking for a new lease on life, in fact, it ranked 19th on the most recent Economist Intelligence Unit Quality of Life Index, ahead of other economically and technologically advanced countries like France, Germany, and the U.K. Suffice it to say that for your family and business life-balance, there is no better place to consider whether you are an executive, a digital nomad, a family looking for a new home, a retiring couple, or a globetrotter looking to establish roots.
The Ireland Portugal Business Network (IPBN) can facilitate valuable introductions through our growing network of like-minded business leaders and innovators who have chosen to call the Algarve home.
Members can enjoy full access to IPBN’s event calendar that includes social networking, seminars and webinars, lectures by top industry professionals, insights from government officials and more.
In this special section about visiting, living, working, or retiring in the Algarve, we will help you take you and your business to the next level. You'll receive regular updates from our partners and members ranging from information on the Algarvian lifestyle, working remotely, advantageous tax programmes, education and healthcare services, real estate transactions, and the like.
For a remote worker, just talking to people in your community can go a long way. But if that community is comprised of like-minded folks with a laid-back attitude astride a stringent worth ethic, it could spell success more quickly than one might expect.
Getting all the right immigration documentation, setting up a new business, understanding new tax codes, and buying property in a foreign country seems like it would be a huge headache just for the sake of a little sunshine, but many of the IPBN members who have taken the plunge disagree.
