US Tourists Flock to Portugal 

Over the past few months, we have seen the number of US expats moving to Portugal increase steadily, but data also reveals that more and more Americans are willing to make the transatlantic journey for short-term holidays and trips as well as for relocation purposes. 

This uptake in US tourist numbers seems to be in part due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as numbers of visitors before the outbreak of the virus were considerably lower than the data we are seeing now. 

The National Statistics Institute (INE) has revealed that the number of tourists from the North American region, who usually account for 8.4% of overnight stays from non-residents, increased by 27.3% in June when compared to the same time period in 2019. 

This increase was seen in all regions across Portugal, but was particularly apparent in the popular tourist destinations of the Algarve, Lisbon and Madeira. 

The data also revealed an increase in Czech, Romanian and Danish tourists when compared to 2019.

After all, they have so much at stake, from their residency and tax status to the future of their expat financial services arrangements.
