Get Portuguese residency with NHR

Rebase is a new, safe, and easy-to-use platform by Nomad List for becoming a legal and fiscal resident in countries that want to attract remote workers. By removing lengthy paperwork, legal complexity, and numerous fees, Rebase helps remove the friction of moving residency as a remote worker around the world and creating the first immigration-as-a-service (IaaS) provider.

This is our first product to help you get Portuguese residency and we'll be expanding to other countries attractive to remote workers very soon.

Right now, Rebase Portugal is open to people from anywhere in the world (yes, also non-US, non-EU) who already have high-skilled remote jobs (like tech jobs, software developers, UX designers, copywriters, etc), as that's who the Portuguese government is trying to attract.

"We spent a large chunk of time discussing my personal situation, which was awesome! The tax in Portugal was also a bit confusing for me since I'm not a tax-savvy person in Portugal but Rebase's tax expert knew his shit based on the questions I asked."

"Just had my call too, and wow... the entire team was super helpful. They’ve explained everything in detail and used visuals like slides and a drawing board to ensure all is clear 😍 they didn’t only cover the immigration part of the process but the tax implications too! 🙌"

"I had a great and super in depth onboarding call today. You hit the nail on the head with curating lawyers, I have personally wasted money on calls with firms that added more confusion than clarity. (..) Good chance I will go ahead with this lawyer, will share feedback on the process once we kick off."

Raunak Datt 🇮🇳
"Had a call yesterday, these guys know what they are doing. They'll even give advice during the onboarding call for folks at DAOs and present you with options to formalize that new form of work. Thanks and see you in Portugal soon!"
