Hello Readers,

Welcome back to Hey Portugal. HeyPortugal

The site has been offline for a few weeks whilst I did some major clean-ups and admin on the site. After 7 years I decided it was time to refresh things.

To ensure that all the information on this site is current and relevant I am planning to review all 500+ articles. Not all of them will go on the new site but more will be added later. All reviewed articles will be posted on our Facebook Page and Twitter Feed so you can keep up to date with the changes. 

I also intent to re-start the eNewsletter when the articles are all ready again. One thing that is already live is our ever-popular Calendar, with all Portugal Holidays and lots of events.

I have addedd a section on Brexit,  in the News Menu. i will post the latest official news bulletins from the British Embassy, Portugal Government and anything else I think is particularly relevant.

Anyone who understands websites will know that this is a lot of work, and those who know me also know I am a working, single mum so please bear with me. I assure you the result will be worth it, I plan to make HeyPortugal.com the most comprehensive site of information for Expats in Central Portugal.
