I am a Portuguese citizen from South Africa working in Qatar and would consider bringing a EEC spec car back to Portugal. Importing from another EEC country is quite straightforward and subject to keeping the vehicle for a stated period no duty is payable. There is no Portuguese Embassy here in Qatar where I can pose the question of what is the duty situation if importing from outside the EEC. Has anyone any knowledge of importing cars from outside the EEC and if any duty is payable? Would appreciate any help Robert
Just to let anyone living in or passing through Montijo, please be careful, there have been a lot of car jackings there over the last while. Spoke to the local police about it. Their advice is, if you think someone is trying to carjack you, lock tight to the car in front, they normally try and get one car in front of you and one car behind. Sometimes they will deliberately give you a little jerk from behind, when you get out to see what has happened they will jump into your car and take off. Go with your instincts, you will normally be right. Take care out there.
My GPS has been my lifeline since moving to Lisbon. I have noticed that several streets that have obviously been in Lisbon for a long time are not registering on my GPS. How do I download new software to update my system? Do I have to pay to do this? It is a top of the range Tom Tom. Any advice would be great.
