You should not have any trouble. You may be asked for documentation to show that your wife is in fact your wife, but as long as you have that, she enjoys a derivative right of freedom of movement.

You would have to look at a second country outside the Schengen area, or have her apply for a national long-stay visa for Portugal or Sweden. The 90/180 rule applies to the entire Schengen area, unless she has a national visa. There are parts of Europe outside Schengen, but Portugal is inside. The UK is outside Schengen, and so are Ireland and much of the ...

The rule in question applies to all EU countries, but the way you tell it, the Portuguese consulate hasn't formally refused a visa, they have just suggested they cannot accept the application for a technical reason while being otherwise prepared to issue a visa. You wrote that “Directive/2004/38/EC Article 5 only states that the passport has to be valid ...

It includes this: If you intend to remain in Portugal for more than 3 months, you must apply for a registration certificate from the Town Hall (Câmara Municipal) in your area of residence.

There are basically two ways to move to the USA: 1) Get a green card (residency/work permit), then you look for job like you would in Europe. 2) Get a work visa like an H-1B. This is sponsored by a company and they do all the work. If you leave that company, you have to either find a new job within a very short time period or go back home. There is a limited ...

I’m Portuguese and Brazilian. My wife is Brazilian. We live in Luxembourg and we are married only in Brazil. We had a child here this year and I registered him as portuguese at the embassy. If one of the parents is portuguese, it’s enough to register a child. Your wife should go to the embassy with her documents and child birth certificate from your country,...

There are several credit cards that don't charge an extra fee for "International Transactions". Two that I'm aware of are Chase Sapphire and American Express Platinum, but there are others.

But if you have a local (Portuguese) drivers license and you are driving a foreign car (UK license plates, for example) ...

I doubt that the university would give such a scholarship and stipend without considering that you should be able to survive there. Talk to them and make sure they haven't made any assumptions (such as that you would be able to get help from your family). That said, I think you can do it, but you have to be very careful with your money. No big trips. Just ...
