Hi, my husband and I are Americans and planning to move to Portugal by November of this year. Can someone help me find out what I need to supply for residency such as birth certificates, police checks, etc. The Embassy is telling us one thing and Portuguese Immigration says something different. Do any of the anglo info members have experience in this area or can you direct me to some reference?

Hey All,I work for myself as a freelance illustrator and have been living in Lisbon for around a year now. I'm fully registered here (recibo verde) but still receive work from my previous home (Ireland).I wonder if anyone could recommend an English speaking (reasonably cheap) account or advisor I could talk to regarding tax issues with billing other countries in the EU ie, Ireland!?Or could someone recommend somewhere I could look for clear instructions on this?Much appreciated.

Single woman here (widowed in 1989) and getting married soon to a Portuguese man. Do I really need to have the embassy issue a letter saying that they DON'T issue a letter of impediment for my upcoming wedding? All the embassy says is that the will not issue a letter of my status. I'm confused!
