So the D7 says you must be in Portugal for 6 consecutive months per year or 8 non consecutive.
how many days is 6 consecutive months? 180 or 183- in Spain on the NLV, it’s 180. A big difference when considering if you are a tax resident or not.
Does a weekend trip to Paris or Madrid stop the clock on “consecutive”?
Can you convert the D7 at a later time to a Golden Visa if we need more flexibility?
If you go to Portugal on the D7 visa, you will become a tax resident because of the minimum stay rules. (The first temporary residence permit is for 2 years. You must be in Portugal for 16 months out of 24, the second temporary residence permit is for 3 years and requires 28 months out of 36 in country. The original 6 consecutive/8 interpolated months language was kept from when it was a single year permit, but the overall requirements have shifted.)
