VISA?

Hi, I am going WWOOfing for the first time in Portugal soon and I was wondering if I need to get a VISA? I am a UK citizen and I know I don't need one to visit but I'm not sure if WWOOFing requires one?
Cheers.

Hello Sunny Joe,

Thanks for your post.

People coming from UK don't need a VISA to visit Portugal. The wwoofer don't come to work in Portugal, they are travelling, meeting people and sharing the everyday life of the Hosts.

Wish you lots of fun in your wwoofing,

Rodrigo

Does this also apply for the wwoofer coming from the US? I've heard about applying for a Schengen Visa...is this something I will need to do?

Hi Courtney,

I am not sure, I guess it depends on how many time are you going to stay.
You must ask to a Portuguese Embasy near you. Have a look to the contacts at http://www.secomunidades.pt/web/guest/PostosConsulares

Please have in mind that you are coming as a tourist having an experience on the field. In case you are coming for work for sure you will need to pass through a long bureaucratic procedure.

Wish you a nice WWOOFing,

Rodrigo
