Changing your Address in Portugal's Portal das Finanças

This took me some time to find how to change the address using the online portal for the Portal das Finanças (Finance Portal) of Portugal. Writing them below for future references.

Finanças Index Page
To change address:

You will receive the confirmation code by post to the new address in 5 days. Once you have received the code by post, to confirm the change address, visit the index page:


If you have any specific questions or require assistance, I recommend you contact them online using their support system, known as e-Balcao.

They are quite helpful, although they may take as long as a month to reply based on the time of the year. They get quite busy during the tax filing season. It helps if you ask your question in Portuguese though - even with the help of Google Translate, if you could not find someone who can speak Portuguese to help you.

    1. Yes, to make sure you indeed have access to that address.

  2. My solicitor registered this for me before I moved to Portugal and now I want to change it to my Portuguese address but that page can only select countries outside Portugal. Should I not be able to select Portugal here?

    1. That's weird. Check again. Probably Portugal is the first country in the list while you are checking for its place following the alphabetical order.

    1. I don't think you can change the address to a foreign address or cancel the residency online. I can be wrong. But these are very complex things. You can ask this question directly from their e-balcao. It will of course take them several days to reply. Rather, send an authorized person to get it done for you.

  4. I also find that Portugal is not an option. I think you have to go to financas office to register as a tax residence, even if you have nif already
