An experience worth writing about

Quick, communicative, and efficient

"I was able to get both my NIF and Portuguese bank account through Bordr. Their customer service was spectacular and the efficiency in their communication was absolutely appreciated. I had contacted 8 other companies/law firms in Portugal and by the time they got back to me, my bank paperwork was already in Portugal. I was able to get my NIF and bank account by the hair of my chinny chin chin just in time for my VFS appointment. I really appreciate the amazing customer service from Bordr and without their diligence, I would have never received those documents in time. Thank you!"

Beyond impressed and highly satisfied

"Bordr has a phenomenal team working to solve a real pain point in the Portugal visa process. The NIF and Bank Opening services were fast, well-informed, and seamless. They were available to answer my many questions during the journey and that sort of service is beyond valuable during these new experiences. I can say, with full confidence, that you should choose to use Bordr for your needs as you navigate the Portugal visa process."

Wonderful experience

"It was a wonderful experience having the Bordr team help us with our NIF numbers. We are both originally from the U.S. and we found the team to be extremely efficient and knowledgeable. They were able to answer all our questions and concerns about the NIF process. The amount of time and money we saved with this company was outstanding and would definitely use them over the alternatives."

Our Story

An entrepreneurial couple in a new country.

Hey there 👋

We're Richard and Kathleen Lo, the husband-wife duo behind Bordr. Originally from the San Francisco, Bay Area, we worked in tech for several years before packing our bags and giving the digital nomad lifestyle a try. We eventually visited Portugal, fell in love, and decided to call it home.

After personally experiencing the challenges of moving to Portugal, we decided to create the service that we wish we had.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which payment methods do you accept?

We use Stripe to process our payments. This allows us to accept all major debit and credit cards from customers in every country.

How far in advance should I start the process?

For D7 applicants, you will need both a NIF and bank account. You will need your NIF before starting the bank account process so we recommend starting the NIF process at least 2 months ahead of your appointment.
