Hi

My husband has an EU Irish Passport so can spend a longer time in Portugal but I have a UK Passport and can only stay for an allotted time.

Does anyone know how I can go about getting the same time to spend in the Algarve as my husband.

Many thanks

J

Hi - we are in the same situation and I am currently going through the process. Not too complex but we will be back in Portugal later in the week and can talk you through it if you are around. We are fairly close by in Sao Bras de Alportel.

Hi

We are not over until 11th September for 6 weeks so it would be great to meet up sometime then so that we can have a good discussion about this as we do need some good advice.  Many thanks and have a great day.  Kindest regards. Jan. [email protected]

There has been some  information about this subject in a newsletter of Afpop  which says that officially and legally  the same European  rules apply to a person who accompanies a European citizen. This means because of the Irish passport you can stay in Portugal as long as your husband.

That sounds like good news but where can I find out if it is legal from a trustworthy source.  Many thanks.  Jan

I am in England at the moment so can't check the article, but the information quoted by Afpop was based  on a formal decision of the EU in Brussel. Maybe you can try to arrange a meeting with Afpop.They have consulting hours  and I saw the representative in Almancil. I'll be back in Portugal in  September and will try to find the exact article.
