I mentioned Portugal dropping their golden visa program a few months ago.
Now, Portugal is limiting new Airbnbs.
No more short-term rental licenses are to be granted in the nation’s urban centers—meaning no more new city Airbnbs.
Housing costs in some urban centers in Portugal are growing 37% a year, so Portugal is trying to limit that growth, so native people can afford to live in their country.
Portugal isn’t the Expat destination for new expats searching for a place to retire anymore. It was great for decades.
Now new expats are looking else where for the perfect spot right now. Join the Expat Rebel newsletter to keep up-to-date on the latest places.
