I have been doing a lot of research about maintaining EU citizenship after Brexit and found Portugal to be perfect. - Getting a five year residency in Portugal is as easy as turning up to a local town hall with a passport and national insurance card called a NIR (easy to get also). - You do not have to stay in Portugal for five years. I am trying to find the exact requirements but I think you only have to be in the country for only 6 months out of every 30. - After 5 years you apply for permanent residency. - After on more year (year 6) you can apply for citizenship and become an EU cittizen again Notes... Portugal and UK has a double tax agreement and its possible to run a UK company, live in Portugal and only pay tax in the UK ( or just choose PT). You will get health cover either way. Portugal allows dual citizenship, Spain for instance doesn't. If you are going to make a move then the Brexit clock is ticking. Could be much harder after March 2019. I am about to start process so will report back. Please don't take the above as gospel, there is a lot of misinformation on the subject, do you own research etc!
