Growing numbers of people are leaving Portugal - many for the country's former colonies, like Brazil, Angola and Mozambique.
Before Christmas the Portuguese prime minister was criticised for suggesting that some of the third of young Portuguese who are out of work should leave the country.
As many as 120,000 people left the country last year.
The BBC's Andrew Harding has been to meet some recent arrivals in the Mozambican capital of Maputo.
