Galão

How to order a Galão
"Queria um galão, por favor?"

The perfect drink to get for a snack paired with a delicious "pastel de nata" (our favorite treat) or a “tosta misto” (toasted bread with butter, cut in three slices). A "galão" is basically half coffee, half milk.

Exclusive Add-ondon't miss our exclusive add-on to your package...
The Pastel de Nata

Available Exclusively to our Meia de Leite #3 and Galão #4 Package Clients

Reduce the Stress… Minimize your Work!

Receive your visa application package by Fed Ex delivered to you by our partner located in the US. Our partner Mike is trusted and we have a long-standing relationship with him and we have a non-disclosure agreement in place. Mike carries a fingerprint clearance card (and actually is a long-time employee of an AZ state government office himself in IT) and prints your documents from a private printer.
Our assistance here is a big time and stress saver for many clients. It keeps you from having to open each folder inside the item folder and find the final one and print it. It makes it easy for you to have confidence that your package is in the correct order, plus Mike will do final complete video package review with Heather directly and notate in the package exactly where each applicant needs to sign each document, as well which documents to take and get notarized. This helps ensure you do everything on your side right. We will even address everything including FedEx account labels from your location to VFS if you are mailing in (applicable to DC applicants only), as well as include a postage-paid return FedEx envelope which the embassy will use to return your passport to you once the Visa has been affixed inside it.
Our partner will also notate where you should input the passport pictures/money orders (if applicable) as well as the FBI report original you received. This leaves the room for technical error significantly lowered because we are doing ALMOST everything to ensure your document package is put together the best it can be and will be a clean file for VFS/Embassy/SEF to process down to the minute details!

Driving License Beyond Guidance

We will guide you on what to do while still in your home country to get the document you will need eventually in Portugal to exchange your license, we currently provide this for a lesser fee.
With this additional service, we take that a step further. Once you have received your Temporary Residence card and your health number, we will get you scheduled for the required medical exam (it’s super simple, and also we have included this fee in our pricing). We will then take all your required documents (we will help you collect them as best as possible) needed and submit them electronically on your behalf to the appropriate Portuguese authorities.
We will then provide you with detailed information on how you will be contacted by the Portuguese authority for your appointment to turn in originals, do your biometrics, and pay the exchange fee. We will be there with you until you have that new license in your hand!  Be prepared that this is a long arduous process on the best of days, so we expect it to take one year to one and a half without any delays for this to occur.

NHR

Non-Habitual Residence Tax Regime
Once you have received your Temporary Residency card in Portugal you can get registered at the local city office to have access to the financial portal. Then with that access, we are able to complete the Non-Habitual Residence Tax Regime election on your behalf. There is a timing issue here that is VERY important not to miss or you won’t be eligible for this election!

Attorney Review

We work closely with several real estate attorneys we have relationships. If you opt for the Pastel de Nata add-on Heather and you will determine your application strategy and then she will proceed to present and discuss this and any other options/thoughts with the attorney early in the process. If the attorney feels there are other more viable options or an issue with the strategy Heather will discuss this with them and bring you into the conversation. Heather will also introduce you to the attorney we have consulted who will be reviewing the final application file, as well.
After the file has been processed and the final package is approved by the attorney for submission you will be in a position to make your already scheduled VFS appointment or mail in your application, whichever applies to your situation.

We're currently using Boots on the Ground Portugal services for our D7 Visa application, and so far what we've seen has been nothing short of fantastic--Heather Binder is super organized, offers superior tracking of each step, and full support during an extremely stressful process.

We'd recommend "Boots on the Ground Portugal" for expats looking for guidance on this complex effort. Thank you for making our lives less complicated! Looking forward to working with you during our journey abroad 😎💚❤️💛🌠
