Working in Portugal right away having Blue Card issued in Germany

Hi everyone,

I've been looking for answer in sef web-site firstly - haven't succeed, so hope you can help me out.

I'm not EU citizen, but 've obtained the Blue Card in Germany last year, based on the job contract I had there. The Blue Card is valid until 2020, but due to private reasons I quit the job in Germany and now I'm looking for opportunities in Lisbon.

The question is - if I there is a company with a hot open position, and they are willing to hire me immediately, but only with condition "if I'm eligible to work in EU", can I start working right away in Portugal, legally having Germany issued Blue Card? Meanwhile, I imagine I'd have to make a local Portuguese one, is that correct?

Any info in this subject would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!
