Foreign nationals working in Portugal must earn at least EUR 557 per month, effective January 1, 2017, a five percent increase from last year's salary threshold. The new salary threshold applies to foreign nationals currently working in Portugal and to those with pending applications.

Portugal typically adjusts its minimum salary threshold on an annual basis. The same salary requirement applies to all workers, including EU nationals and third-country nationals hired locally in Portugal and those on international assignments.

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

Employers must ensure that salaries paid to foreign workers in Portugal meet the increased minimum level.
