When things getting more serious, and your demand for correct information in all aspect of moving to Madeira increase, you shod consider being a member of AFPOP. They write about themselves;
“AFPOP specializes in providing a comprehensive range of information services and support to foreign residents and visitors to Portugal. We can assist in keeping you up-to-date with new and existing legislation, along with social events for all of our members.”
We did sign up for membership four years ago and we are still members. A good investment indeed. When looking for information or need any kind of advice, you will find it or get it. Highly recommended.
