Re: EHIC/GHIC & Registration

AFIK EHIC is specifically valid until it's expiry date. eg 02/02/2024 for me. The GHIC is a proposal at present that would apply to countries agreeing a reciprocal arrangement.

Re: Schengen visa rules

she told me come 2021 she would only be able to spend 90 days in Spain, and would then be unable to return for 180 days. Not quite right.....UK passport holders are now limited to a max of 90 days out of 180 in any EU country. This is a rolling 180 days, so the next period will commence 90 days aft...

Re: EHIC/GHIC & Registration

Portuguese immigration policy for longer than 90 days......This is what I have.......but now we have left the EU I don't know if you can still apply ? If you are an EU/EFTA citizen in Portugal for more than 90 days, you need a registration certificate from your local city council to formalize your ...

Re: EHIC/GHIC

we did it just in case we got a "no deal" Brexit and we wanted stay more than 90 days in any 180. It only costs a few euro so seemed like a sensible move. Looks as if the Brexit deal will go through today, but it's still 90 days in any 180 though...it would be nice if Portugal, if not EU, granted a...

Whilst Travel ( or, at least, Health ) Insurance is recommended, it's good to know the base level cover i...
