Non-Habitual Resident migrants nearly double
Improved conditions and generous tax breaks have attracted more foreigners to Portugal in the last year and a half. The increase in the number of Non-Habitual Residents was 83% over the period, currently totalling 23,767 with NHR status. The rise is mainly from France, Italy and the UK. Emigrated Portuguese nationals are also returning but only account for 6% of the total.
