Importing a car from uk to portugal

Posted in Portugal forum

hello we have a holiday house that we are renovating in the Alentejo. We would like to bring a uk car across permanently and wondered if anyone could help answer these 2 questions:

1. we do not want to take up residency in Portugal permanently but we understand as a EU/EFTA citizen in Portugal for more than 90 days (three months),we need to get a registration certificate from your local city council to formalise your residence in Portugal. Is it possible to use this to matriculate the car ? it possible to import it and not pay import tax ?

The advice on the matriculation process / experiences very helpful but it would be great if anyone has done this previously

    I suggest you call the SEF or the Portuguese consulate nearest you for the correct information. You can also check out the webpage for information too. This site is not in English yet.
