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.

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.
