Re: EHIC/GHIC & Registration

On return, eventually, I have ascertained that we need to go to Lagoa Town Hall and apply to upgrade our Atestado da Residencia to a Residency 5 year term. This will entitle us to override the 90 day rule and entitle us to a few other things subject to qualification. I believe if you are already re...

Re: Cecol Accountants

A solicitor has advised us to wait and see what the advice is regarding fiscal rep as we do not have income in Portugal. You can appoint someone to be your rep on-line, but need a notary letter, which he advised he can do for us if needed. I did try to do direct debit on line. Filled it all in and w...

Re: Fibre optic broadband

Make sure that you fill in the Complaints Book as well. They will always try to divert you from filling in the formal complaint. There's no reason why you cannot fill in both the book and their own form. I was about to come on and say the same thing. The form may be quicker, but it diverts from ext...

Re: Fibre optic broadband

We had a new junction box fitted to the front of our block of 3 apartments a few weeks ago. Checked with MEO and it said it was available, but had to request a phone call to install.

I doubt you will be able to set up bank account from UK. They need to see various documents, inc passport and your official NIF paperwork (in 2 parts), an...
