Frequently asked questions

I'm from country X. Can I use Baseflow?

Yes. Baseflow is open to people from anywhere in the world (also non-US, non-EU).

But I'm a US citizen, is Baseflow suitable for me?

As a US citizen, your worldwide income is subject to US income tax, regardless of where you live, as per the nationality principle. Although there is a ~$108,700/y exclusion if you're outside US for 330 days per year, you'll always have to pay tax in US over any amount above that.

Is there a minimum stay requirement in Portugal as a EU citizen?

As a EU citizen, you can either spend more than 183 days per year in Portugal, or show proof of permanent residency - renting or owning a house.

What are the requirements to become a Portuguese resident as a non-EU citizen?

If you're a non-EU citizen, you'll apply for a visa (usually D7) at a Portuguese embassy. You'll have to spend at least 6 consecutive months or 8 non-consecutive months per year in Portugal during the first 2 years - unless you buy a home. You also need to have a regular and reliable income of at least $15,000/year, and a 100% clean criminal record.
