There are all kinds of rules. To be able to stay in Portugal for longer than 90 days, you eventually have to renounce residency of where you were before. That is is the legal necessity to live here and have access to services such as education and state health care.

Yes you can own a house here, pay taxes etc but legally can only stay here for 90 days without applying for a temporary or permanent resident's card. For UK passport holders this is now of course fairly difficult to get around.

Thanks Cubser, how come though some people have residencia in Portugal and still work in the UK it all seems confusing to me as I thought if you had residencia you had to stay six months in Portugal, plus you could only be a resident of one country

The 6 months rule you mention is probably the tax rule that you must pay tax in the country you are resident in for 183+ days per year. It is entirely possible to have residency in Portugal, which is a right to remain here and have access to health and other services and yet be taxed in another country. Even moreso as there is a lot of tax sharing integration since 2002 between the EU countries, I believe the UK is still party to this agreement.
Without Portuguese residency a UK passport holder may only stay in Portugal for a maximium of 90 days in any 180 day period.

You can have residence in more than one country. You can also have dual citizenship with 2 countries. residence and citizenship should not be confused.

Went to Lisbon yesterday for my appointment. Simply couldn't get one closer, but I had a nice day out as well, so not bad. Whole thing took exactly 30 minutes from the time I walked in the door to the time I left, 22 minutes of which was waiting for my turn. Very efficient. I was pleasantly surprised, but I guess they are getting used to it now. No proofs requested except passport, just filled in a very simple form with NIF, Social Security, Cartão Utente numbers.

I was told it might be two months before I get my card.

We were told the same 8 weeks ( also at  Lisbon) but had cards within 3 weeks.
It might be a bit delayed by Christmas  but hopefully well within the 8 weeks

Postman came with my new card on Tuesday, I wasn't in, collected Wednesday. Registered post, has to be signed for. Photo makes me look like a serial killer on the loose.

Advice - if your bank etc has your old residencia information logged among your personal data, you need to have that changed to the new one.  My bank (Millenium) had forewarned me some time back. That took me about 20 minutes at the local branch. There is no way to do it on line, you have to show them the card.

Then make a copy, upload to somewhere safe and keep a paper copy also.

When mine turned up, the postman rang on the gate downstairs (we live in a block) and passed it to me by hand, no signature required. When my wife's arrived, it just got put in the postbox... 

Depends on your postman I guess... LOL
