Can I access free public healthcare in Portugal as a non-EU expat?GoldenVisasAdmin2020-04-03T16:57:22+00:00
No. Nationals of other EU countries can access public healthcare in Portugal via the SNS with an S1 form. If, however, you’re a non-EU national, you’ll only become eligible to access free healthcare until you become a permanent resident. Up until that point, you will need comprehensive private health insurance to retire in Portugal.
