The health system in Portugal is based on universal residence. The meaning of this is that anybody who is resident in Portugal, is registered with the immigration authorities or town hall and has also been given a residency certificate is eligible to register with any preferred health centre in his locality and receive the healthcare from the state.
But according to regulations from the EU, those who are receiving state pensions from one EEA country while they reside in another EEA country should have their healthcare covered by the country that pays their pension. This means that if you live in Portugal while your state pension is paid by the UK, your healthcare should be covered by the UK as well. This is done by giving you the S1 form.
Because of this, if you get to the age of state pensions while you live in Portugal, you have to make a formal request for the S1 form. When you get this form from the DWP, you should hand it over to the social security office, normally named Posto de Atendimento da Segurança Social within your locality. When you hand this over to them, they will now make some changes on your coverage.
If you are registered with the health system from the state in Portugal, you must de-register with your provider in the UK. The same thing is applicable when you want to go back to the UK. When this is the case, you must at this time de-register with the authorities in Portugal. Get to the NHS website and read up how you can plan properly for your healthcare if you have the intention of living abroad permanently.
Those who are going to Portugal for their holidays should endeavour to go along with their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which must also be valid. They should also get a private medical insurance cover for their travel.
Education in Portugal
Every child from 6-16 years of age must acquire education according to Portuguese law, so far as the parents of the kid are on legal residency in Portugal. This education is free for all from the pre-school level to the high school level. But since the preschool which happens before the 6 years age range is not obligatory, it is not all kids that gain a place in it. This is because places are only available according to demand, and the demand in different parts of Portugal varies. You can find more information about this from the ministry of education in Portugal. If you are moving to Portugal and need to read more about the Portuguese government and their services, you have to get to Loja do Cidadão, which is a one stop shop for citizens of Portugal. Our website does not certify qualifications obtained in Britain. But you can get more information on the best way to get your UK documents recognized from an information leaflet.
Relocation and residency requirements
EU citizens can move and stay in Portugal for up to 3 months without any form of registration. But, once you intend to relocate for more than 3 months, then you have to get a registration certificate from any Town Hall or Câmara Municipal close to you. If you have this intention, then you should obtain these four months after arriving to Portugal. When you get this certificate, it will serve you for about 5 years from the date it was issued or till your intended departure time. The permanent residence certificate can be gotten from the office of immigrations named Serviço de Estrangeiros e Fronteiras. If you wish to be entitled to the local services like social security, healthcare and schools, then get to the Portuguese authorities and register.
