    This website is awesome! I am interested in relocating to Lisbon with my daughter, who will be in high school by the time we relocate. I may be able to work remotely (I am a nurse practitioner in the U.S.), so will apply for a D7/NHR due to my income will continue to be from a job in the U.S. What kind of visa does my daughter need to finish high school in Portugal? Does she qualify for public school on my D7 visa or should I financially plan to send her to international school? We are both U.S. citizens. Thanks so much!

    Hi Kelli,

    As I understand it, you need to meet the financial requirements for the D7 + another 30% of that for your daughter.

    As I’m sure you know, the financial requirements for the D7 are quite low when compared to a US salary but I would make sure I have a good buffer just in case. Lisbon isn’t as cheap as other parts of Portugal and, if you do need to send your daughter to an international school, that’ll add an extra cost.

    If you’re both resident, she would be eligible for public schools and, if she’s just starting high school, she’s young enough that she can pick up the language easier and fit in.

    Hi Alison,

    There’s a lot to think about with public schools. We sent our kids to public schools and would definitely recommend it but plenty of friends went for international schools. Both have their upsides and downsides.
