The great global pandemic of the early 2020s resulted in a lot of cultural changes everywhere. But in Portugal, one of the most unforeseen consequences was that the country became the destination of choice for many remote workers from all around the world.
Once offices started closing and people were ordered to stay home, many workers began realizing that they could work (and live) anywhere while still keeping their same careers. And if you could live anywhere in the world, why not sunny Portugal, Europe’s most scenic and temperate country?
In m any cases, people who visited Portugal once instantly fell in love with the place. So when the opportunity came to live there permanently while still maintaining their employment status back home — albeit remotely — they jumped at the opportunity.
The result was a surge in the number of foreigners finding modern yet affordable places to live in Lisbon, Porto, and other major Portuguese cities — as well as smaller rustic towns and remote seaside villages — and setting up their ideal life. Basking in Portugal’s legendary sunshine and enjoying its endless beaches while still holding down their job was like a dream come true for many newly relocated remote workers.
It’s not too late for you to share in this idyllic Portuguese lifestyle. If you have the option of working from home, why not make that home beautiful Portugal, where life is slower, prices are lower, and the people are friendly and welcoming.
