E-Residence is a startup that focuses on making bureaucracy easier for foreigners moving to Portugal. In particular, the company offers services such as opening Portuguese bank accounts or obtaining NIF numbers, both of which are often needed in order to obtain a residency visa before moving to Portugal.

The company offers one of the fastest NIF services: a NIF number in as little as 3 working days (for an express service fee). Their standard NIF service is also one of the most affordable at just €99.

Their bank account opening service is also very reasonably priced at €300. This service gets you an account with Novobano, and the process takes around 3-4 weeks, which is similar to most of its competitors.


Currently, E-Residence.com offers the following services:

  • Obtaining a NIF Number
  • Obtaining a NISS (social security) number
  • Fiscal representation
  • Opening a Portuguese bank account
  • NHR registration
  • Company registration
  • Freelancer registration
  • Accounting services


E-Residence has overwhelmingly positive reviews on TrustPilot[1]https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/e-residence.com. Most people reported getting their NIFs within just a few days, typically around 3. Where there are negative reviews, the team at E-Residence.com have replied, and you can read those replies on TrustPilot. Many of the negative reviews seem to be for situations that are outside of E-Residence’s control, but they have offered support and refunds wherever possible.
