Hi! I’m a 23 year old guy from Argentina. I want to migrate to Portugal in the next 6-9 months. The economic situation here is terrible and only getting worse. I’ve done some research.
I’ve understood that you can get into Portugal as tourist (max. 3 months stay), and, if you find a job there, you can apply for a residency authorization so that you can work and live there legally.
I’m a front end web developer. I don’t care what job I find, I’m more than happy to work as a waiter, dishwasher, etc, though I’d prefer to work as a developer.
I’d go with money to pay for accomodation, transportation, food, etc.
So a have a few questions:
- Is it relatively easy to find a job there as a foreigner?
- Can you find a job without being fluent in Portuguese? I know some but no so much (I’ll do a fast-paced course anyway before going there).
- How is life there? Anything you want to tell me will be appreciated.
- Do you know someone that has done this?
Thanks in advance, I hope you have a great day!
