I want to migrate to Portugal, can someone provide me some info?

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:

  1. Is it relatively easy to find a job there as a foreigner?
  2. 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).
  3. How is life there? Anything you want to tell me will be appreciated.
  4. Do you know someone that has done this?

Thanks in advance, I hope you have a great day!
