What's a NIF and why do I need it?
The NIF ("Número de Identificação Fiscal" in Portuguese) is a personal identification number that's used whenever you want to sign any type of contract in Portugal. Getting a NIF does not make it mandatory for you to pay taxes in Portugal.
There are many scenarios where having a NIF is required, such as opening a Portuguese bank account, signing a rental agreement, signing a utility contract, signing an employment contract, opening a company, registering with an educational institution, among others.
In addition, in order to be considered for the non-habitual resident status, you will first need to have a NIF.
