Lisbon is a helpful website for expats and prospective expats that provides information on moving to Portugal, Spain, Italy, and Greece. As well as information, Lisbob also offers a number of services, such as a NIF service where they can get you a Portuguese NIF number in as little as 24 hours.

Lisbob has kindly offered Portugalist readers a very nice discount where they can get €10 off the price of their regular services plus they get the Finanças login for free.


For Portugal, in particular, Lisbob offers the following services:

  • Obtaining a NIF Number
  • Opening a Portuguese Bank Account
  • Real estate Search
  • NISS Number
  • Freelancer Registration
  • Certificate of Conformity


Lisbob is very competitively priced. For example, their standard NIF service costs €89, which, while not the cheapest option out there, is extremely affordable.

However, it’s their rush service which is really where they stand out. For an additional €49, you can get your NIF number in just 48 hours — or your money back. This is much cheaper than other rush services. In comparison, E-residence’s rush service costs €299.


Lisbob has fantastic reviews on TrustPilot with a score of 4.8 based on 238 reviews at the time of writing in October 2023. There were a handful of 1 and 2 star reviews, most of which Lisbob’s customer service team had not replied to. At least one of these was apparently a fake review posted by a competitor. That’s not to say all of the bad reviews came from competitors, of course. However, more than 90% of reviews gave Lisbon 4 or 5 stars.

Similarly, Lisbon also has fantastic reviews on Google. Again, we found a number of 1 star reviews, however, according to Lisbob’s replies, it seems that many of these may have been fake.
