Frequently Asked Questions

There is no catch or hidden information. Many big tech companies and other multinational corporations set up their customer support centers in Portugal. They need native speakers in many languages to work five days a week supporting their clients all over the world. In exchange, they are ready to offer you incredible experiences while working and living in beautiful Portugal.

No, there is no application cost. Your company will also cover your transportation to Portugal and airport taxi pick-up as well as the accommodation with all utilities covered. After that, your salary will be more than enough for a comfortable life in Portugal. Upon arrival, you are only expected to bring a small amount of pocket money (300€–400€) to cover your first month’s personal expenses until you receive your first paycheck.

It’s a rolling deadline. The program closes as soon as we receive enough candidates for each specific language. So you’d better hurry up!
Don’t worry if you can’t move to Portugal in the next 2–3 months. You are free to choose the relocation date that suits you, but we advise you to apply as soon as possible.

Unfortunately you are not eligible at the moment, but please keep checking our page for very possible eligibility changes. In the meantime, follow us on Facebook and Instagram and share the Live It Portugal program with your friends who might be eligible to apply now. They’ll be the ones waiting for you with a glass of ouzo and super yummy gyros when you visit them in Portugal.

Due to coronavirus pandemic, Portugese Embassies have temporarily suspending the process of issuing work visas for candidates with non-EU passports. For that reason, please apply only if you have an EU passport. 

No, provided you are at least 18 years old, you are welcome to apply and participate. There is no other age limit. Portugal is fun for everyone! 🙂

As soon as we receive your application, we check whether you fulfill eligibility criteria mainly in terms of how native or close to native you are in your selected languages. We also evaluate your resume and motivation to participate in the Live It Portugal program.
If you pass this initial screening, we arrange up to two brief calls as an introduction to the final interview with the company you are assigned to.
Those initial calls are friendly chats and the opportunity to meet you better as well as answer any questions you might have (that have not been answered here in the FAQ). Also, we use those two calls to share some interview tips that will be useful for you during the final interview with the company. So, you can see those two initial calls as with your allies who help you prepare for the final interview.
After those calls, you have the final interview with the assigned company. Usually they are very quick, and you receive their decision and offer letter within a week after the final interview (very often even within three working days). Enjoy the process that, hopefully, will be your best introduction to stunning Portugal!

The minimum duration of the program is 6 months, but your chances of getting selected will be higher if you can stay longer. Don’t worry! You will fall in love with Portugal and will be excited to stay much longer.

Sure, provided that the company (Teleperformance Portugal) is happy with your performance, you can renew your contract as many times as you wish. There is potential upward career mobility included (please see the next question).

For professionals who plan on staying longer, there are opportunities for career progression. For the first period, everyone starts with customer support roles, supporting business or private clients of companies like Apple, Facebook, VW, Netflix, Microsoft, and more.
From the very first day, you have the opportunity to attend a variety of trainings in different fields, from management, soft skills, and technology to Portugese language.
Then professionals are moved to supervisor roles, and further, there are plenty of career options within different job functions including human resources, management, finance, and strategy.

Imagine having one of these powerful brands like Netflix, Volkswagen, Microsoft, Philips, the most well-known social media platform and the best search engine on your resume? Also, during the program your host company is going to provide you with lots of practical training and skill-building activities. When you take all that into account in addition to an unforgettable Portugese experience, you can be sure you’ll be perfectly equipped for whatever future career you choose to follow.

Of course you will. You are guaranteed two days off per week + 21 days’ paid vacation every year.

There’s no way you can feel lonely in super social Portugal! In addition to other participants coming from all over the world, you will meet many new local friends. On the other hand, if you are someone who enjoys less social time, Portugal offers breathtaking nature, islands to discover, and fascinating cultural heritage.

Yes, absolutely! Your host company will offer free Portugese classes and plenty of trips around Portugal, themed parties, sporting events and cultural activities. In addition to that, you will be constantly surrounded by Portugal and its wonderful culture.

Portugal is a quite safe destination: The vast majority of people you interact with will be honest and helpful. According to the Crime Index by Numbeo, Portugal is similarly as safe as countries like Canada, Norway or New Zealand and safer than countries like the US, Chile and Belgium.
If you follow general common sense for behaving in public and taking care of your personal belongings, you will be just fine.

This is probably the best program in the world when it comes to ease of moving abroad. If you’re selected and upon signing the job contract, you will be assigned an experienced HR manager who will work on your relocation to Portugal.
That person books your airfare to Portugal and arranges a taxi driver to wait on you at the airport and take you to your accommodation that will be provided by your company. Above all, your dedicated HR person helps with any other assistance you might need before or after your arrival in Portugal.

Sure! If you speak to some people older than 40 about things they regret not doing in their 20s, the most frequent answer for sure is travelling and experiencing foreign countries. Live It Portugal is surely one of the most ideal opportunities to not only travel to a foreign country but also fully immerse yourself in the beautiful Portugese culture.
The best part: Participation in the Live It Portugal program won’t cost you anything, but you will be able to earn enough financial resources for a comfortable and enjoyable time in Portugal (and maybe even save some money depending on your lifestyle).
In addition to experiencing Portugal and Potugese culture, you have the opportunity to meet colleagues from over 60 countries for a truly local and international experience.
Because of all the above reasons, we are confident to say this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire experiences that will enrich your 20s and be remembered throughout your entire life (and surely benefit your career as well).
Don’t regret anything didn’t do in your 20s! Apply now here! Welcome to Portugal!
