Bordr is a new startup that aims to make Portuguese bureaucracy easier for foreigners who want to move to Portugal. The website was started by Richard and Kathleen, a husband and wife duo who themselves had gone through the challenges of getting a visa (the D7) and moving to Portugal.
Having felt that there was room for improvement in this space, they launched Bordr.io.
Currently, Bordr.io offers the following services:
- Obtaining a NIF Number remotely
- Opening a Portuguese bank account remotely
Many consulates now require you to have a NIF number and Portuguese bank account before you move to Portugal. While you could come to Portugal to get a bank account and get a NIF (with fiscal representation), Bordr’s services allow you to do this remotely from almost anywhere in the world.
