Five Ways Expats Can Integrate Themselves In A New Country

Moving to a new location can be as daunting as it is exciting. Whether you’re moving 100, 1,000 or even 10,000 miles away, settling into a new area can be exhausting; not just the initial process of unpacking and acclimatising to your new environment, but also integrating. Not everyone handles change well, and for some who have the opportunity to relocate for work, upping sticks and moving can be a scary prospect, despite the opportunities it brings.

Your Free Guide To Living In Portugal

Very popular with retiring Britons, Portugal offers sunny living, an interesting property market and important tax advantages for retirees from overseas.

Portugal is divided into seven provinces or regions with the enchanting city of Porto and a craggy landscape of montanhas e serras in the frequently chilly north, and the balmy coastline of the Algarve in the south. In addition to mainland Portugal, the country also includes two autonomous island territories in the Atlantic Ocean, the archipelagos of Madeira and the Azores. Of the country’s regions the Algarve is still by some distance the most popular choice for Britons. But it isn’t the only choice.

In this guide, we will provide you with guidance on the issues you will need to address as you plan your move, whether that is to retire, buy a second home or simply enjoy a new lifestyle. We have also identified partners to help you with the move and you can access these through the Expat Network site.
