Incredibly fast, friendly and reliable. They processed my request and got on the video call the same day and within a handful of days, I had my NIF. They even answered questions I had about immigrating to Portugal and offered their services to get it done, so they can be a one-stop-shop for all of your needs if need be.

We were in a real quandary trying to get a Portuguese bank account for a visa application. We tried many avenues, but E-residence were the only people who could deliver the bank account for us. Really appreciated their help. Just a question of waiting for the two to three week process to go through, and then you have your account. Life savers. Thank you Mark at E-Residence.

I have turned to e-residence.com finding their services online after attending a NIF N°. Showed to be too time consuming for me. E-residence.com gave me Kiril as contact person after taking my details and within some 5 days from that point they produced the NIF N°. Kiril did a great job and Im very pleased with this service. I would like to recommend e-residence.com to anyone who moves to Portugal it is worth every penny, or cent in that case.

FAQ

What is a NIF?

NIF, more commonly referred to as simply “Contribuinte” stands for “Número de Identificação Fiscal” which translates as the Number of tax identification, is the first step and the cornerstone for any economic activity in Portugal. It is required for both residents and non-residents of Portugal that wish to open a bank account, do any kind of deals with real estate, acquire a residence permit, contract an internet provider, etc. Hence, if you are considering moving to Portugal, conducting any kind of business activities or even simply staying here for prolonged periods of time - registering NIF is a priority.

How long does it take to acquire a NIF?

Generally it takes from a couple of hours to a couple of days to issue a NIF, however it should be noted that the time depends first of all on the AT office and there have been cases when clients have waited up to a month to get their NIF. Hence you should always prepare for the longest scenario (3-4 weeks).

Does a NIF ever expire?

No, NIF does not have an expiration date and is issued “for life”. In case you lose your NIF, you will not be simply assigned a new number, you will have to start a new process from scratch and get a brand new document.

Which authority issues NIF?

The document is issued by “Autoridade Tributária e Aduaneira” (Tax and Customs Authority) and contains all tax and financial information of its holder. For non residents it is required to have a local tax representative.

What is this “tax representation”?

Foreigners are required to have a local tax representative in order to file for a NIF. Our processing fee (€150) covers the registration and tax representation for 1 year. It will be renewed in a one year.

How long does tax representation last?

According to the contract, our tax representation lasts 1 year, however it can be renewed.

What about NIF for minors?

It is possible to file for a NIF for minors, however please note that you will have to additionally submit a birth certificate with an apostille.

Can I get a password for “portal das financas”?

Yes it is possible to request a password for this portal. In this case it will be sent to us and we will forward it to you.

How will I receive my NIF?

Currently NIFs are issued online in a pdf format. As soon as we get your document - we will send it to the email you provided us.

Do you have temporary NIF issued by bank?

Issuing of permanent NIF can be done after cancellation of temporary NIF, for this reason it can take more time than usually.
