Moving and Living in Portugal

A series of articles on how to move to Portugal can almost certainly turn your life into a bitter nightmare and meaningless, due to the fact that the Portuguese people in general are of terrible character, a society that is extremely corrupt and dysfunctional at all levels and, above all, Portugal is an undemocratic country where the forces of law protect the criminals and corrupt for the most part.
In Portugal, you are not a citizen, but a piece of trash for the dictatorial Portuguese State, ruled by crooks at the service of other crooks. The more your life depends on Portugal and the Portuguese people, the worse it could end up for you.

Due to 95% of Portuguese society being made up of crooks and idiots, practically nothing works as it’s supposed to, and you can’t really achieve goals and do anything in Portugal either, regardless of your best efforts and competence. Also, be extremely careful with your money, because in Portugal your money is always in danger of being stolen “legally”, and, obviously, you can’t count on the rigged Portuguese justice system to uphold the law. Once you’ve been stolen in Portugal, you’ve been stolen forever! And this, of course, applies to any other type of very serious situation that you may come across.

In Portugal you’re completely on your own (and abandoned) if anything serious happens to you!

Portugal is a dictatorship in practice because there is no real separation of powers, in what matters most, between the judicial power and the political power, as evidenced by the numerous news shown on this website.

Be very afraid to come to Portugal!

They bought a “house”, but live in “tourist accommodation”. Hundreds could lose the right to use the house they bought

Palmela Village housing scam
Six thousand people scammed! Just because they bought a house to live in! These six thousand defrauded people bought their houses with official documents issued by the City Council, explicitly stating that they were houses for "habitation", but after a few years they discovered that they had not purchased a "house" in the legal sense, but rather an "accommodation unit" intended for commercial tourism.

British presenters lose ten million euros on a dream villa in Portugal

This insolvency case is completely buried, as you will read, in very strong factual illegalities committed, as well as numerous indicators also strongly suspicious of criminal activity, to say the least, however, as this is Portugal, absolutely nothing is ever investigated, because everyone is in on it.

60% of Portuguese nurses requested a declaration to emigrate in 2023 and more than 3,300 nurses have left Portugal since 2020

60% of Portuguese nurses emigrate
In what country does an entire class of professionals emigrate en masse? Even more so of a class as important to a country and its health as nurses! I honestly don't know, nor have I ever heard of such a thing, because not even in so-called third world countries does this happen on such scale!

President of the Portuguese Republic denies having pulled the strings for the treatment in Portugal of two Brazilian twins with a medicine that costs 4 million euros

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and the treatment in Portugal of two Brazilian twins with a medicine that costs 4 million euros
Portugal is a country full of urgent needs at all levels and measly salaries, yet it can pay 4 million euros from the public purse for a medicine to be administered in Portugal to some citizens living in Brazil, for the simple reason that they, in their own words, “knew the daughter-in-law of the President of the Portuguese Republic, who knew the Minister of Health”.

Portuguese elect a dictator as the greatest Portuguese of all time, and in a close second place elect a communist who wanted to annex Portugal to the former Soviet Union

Portuguese elect a dictator as the greatest Portuguese of all time
Although it was a television contest, it speaks volumes about the primitive mentality and positioning of the Portuguese people in general, completely out of step with the democratic and free world of modern nations in the 21st century...

Faro doctor gathers more evidence of negligence at Algarve hospital. Anesthetist with 32 years career confirms stories

Portuguese hospital inside
This shocking news is a very good report of how most public hospitals in Portugal work, with more or less seriousness. It is very frightening to know that a patient who goes to a Portuguese hospital in search of help actually runs the risk of leaving in a worse state of health than when he entered, or even of suffering a very common "accidental" death, for which there is never a responsible or culpable party.

Pedrógão Grande fire fraud
Even in a disaster as terrible as the devastating fire of Pedrógão Grande in 2017, which caused 66 deaths and 253 injuries, destroyed about 500 houses, of which 261 were permanent homes, and 50 businesses, the victims were robbed, most of whom never received the aid supposedly intended for them, and many people even went hungry without access to food.

EU opens proceedings against CPLP visas in Portugal for non-compliance with EU rules

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa President of Portugal
Portugal only gives the European Union headaches. This time they have decided to open the doors of the Schengen area to any citizen of the CPLP (Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries), but the problem is that it is being done arbitrarily, without rules and without any minimum acceptable requirement other than paying 15 euros, for an almost "free" access to the common EU Schengen area.

New Muslim mosque in Lisbon offered by the city council will cost taxpayers three million euros

Muslims praying at Martim Moniz in Lisbon
As Portugal is a very rich country where the people have a very high quality of life (sarc.), it is possible to be very generous towards the believers of the Muslim religion. That is why the city council of Lisbon will donate 3 million euros of Portuguese money for the construction of a Muslim mosque.

A Spanish doctor and his team operated as much in 6 days as 5 doctors in a year and for half the price charged in private

Ophthalmologist in Portugal
It can be said that a Spanish doctor is worth 285 times more than a Portuguese doctor: Spanish doctor - 234 surgeries in six days | Portuguese doctor - 0.82 surgeries in six days. As the Spanish doctor says "I understand their concern and I know why there are such long waiting lists in Portugal. It's just that for each private operation they charge around two thousand euros". Oops!

Had to wait 12 years for justice with his life destroyed

Gonçalo Neves waited 12 years for justice
Gonçalo Neves, also known as Tofu, became a paraplegic 12 years ago after a car accident left him in a vegetative state due to a traumatic brain injury. In true Portuguese style, the case dragged on in court for 12 (twelve!) years! Only now have they received compensation! And where is the other compensation for the 12 years of total hell, on all levels, psychological, financial, etc., that they went through…? It's something that of course nobody cares about…

Top horrors of medical errors in Portugal

Inside a hospital in Portugal
Certainly, among hundreds or millions of anonymous cases with more or less severity, this article can only present four horrifying stories about the "treatment" that so many people undergo when they need intervention in a hospital in Portugal, from dying in hospital after a simple operation to nasal polyps, and family members still having to wait 20 years for the case to reach the European Court just to receive some justice

There are courts in Portugal where cases drag on for more than 20 years

Corrupt and inhuman Portuguese Justice
It is very easy to conclude from this extensive news that Portugal is definitely a madhouse. However, it turns out that this is a problem that starts with the Portuguese mindset, for reasons as diverse as ingrained incompetence, laziness, sloppiness, dishonesty, disorganization, and the fact that the Portuguese generally don't give a damn about each other.

Punching a woman’s eardrum and hitting her with a nail-studded bat “is not particularly serious”, according to a Portuguese judge

Portuguese judge does not condemn domestic violence
The title says it all, so here we have another "spectacular" stone age ruling from a Portuguese judge, and he even has the nerve to quote the Bible in his ruling, saying "we can read in the Bible that the adulterous woman must be punished by death". So what he meant implicitly was that his sentence was actually kind because what this woman really deserved was to die! I'm stunned!

“In 20 years, we will be an island on the European continent”, the rail plan is “completely retrograde”: the open letter of the experts

Portuguese train
Portugal is an eternally postponed country. Nothing ever goes the right way in Portugal because the interests of the countless corrupt always come first. Obviously, Portugal is not only not converging with the EU as it should, it is actually diverging, and at an exponential rate.

Case of the faceless baby reported in Spain as putting “the Portuguese medical profession in check”

Ultrasound of baby without a face in Portugal
A case of true horror that could only happen in Portugal. This obstetrician, who had already accumulated many complaints for failing to detect malformations on ultrasound scans, also "missed" the case of a girl who had "inverted legs, no chin, and also serious brain injuries". I'm not an obstetrician, but I don't think even I would miss that!

Swindler is free from prison as long as he returns five percent of the money he took from his clients, which exceeds 800,000 euros

Portuguese swindler
Another totally absurd and criminal sentence from another Portuguese corrupt judge, one that perfectly illustrates why Portuguese justice is such an aberration, a horror movie, a criminal institution above all. It is very clear that this judge is far more concerned about the crook than about his many victims (I wonder why!), going so far as to state something so outrageously insulting to the victims as "not to jeopardize the dignity and livelihood of the accused"...

“There were no doctors, no stretcher, no sheet”: the family of a man who died outside the hospital

Man dies at hospital door in Portugal
In Portugal, you can also die at the door of a hospital, as if you were an animal, a pig, according to the words of the victim's older brother. When the family arrived at the hospital, they were just told that they were sorry, but at that time there were no doctors in the hospital, and so the man apparently ended up dying there on the asphalt of the road...

Giving birth in Portugal

Portuguese are horrible people

Portuguese people at a bus stop
Behind the facade of apparent normality, you will find out the worst way how horrible the Portuguese are if you live there long enough, bearing no resemblance to any other place in the world. Honestly, Portugal is a country of crooks and mentally deficient people. My nine years' experience as an expat in Portugal has shown me how devious things can get. Deep down, the Portuguese are only happy when they see others suffering...

Portugal; Where all dreams are shattered and all nightmares begin

Extremely run down vehicle in Portugal
Geographically, Portugal is very beautiful and I think, full of untapped potential, but very regrettably, due to the vast majority of Portuguese people being very dishonest, callous and inept, it becomes a very difficult, more like impossible, place to construct a successful and happy life, as you have to fight against an immense plethora of difficulties and pitfalls that are presented to you almost every day...
