Linking from Lisbon

If your company trades with Portugal and you want your business to look local by advertising a local phone number in say Lisbon then you need to read on.

Local legislation changes means that you can no longer purchase a local phone number in any Portuguese city and onward forward the inbound calls outside of Portugal. This means that if you want a Lisbon phone number to point to your London office, you can’t. There may be providers that will build this service for you but if the in-country regulator finds out that you have this service, they will terminate the number immediately. It’s not worth the risk.

Your only current option if you want a phone number in Portugal is to purchase a Portugal toll free number. Feel free to click on this link that will take you to our Portugal page.

If you already have a local number in Portugal and are concerned about the regulation amendment please feel free to contact us. “É melhor prevenir do que remediar.”
