Portuguese seek jobs in former colonies

Countries like Angola, Mozambique and Brazil offer refuge from Portugal's economic problems.

    Portugal has been hit hard by Europe's economic crisis, with its economy continuing to shrink and unemployment still rising.

    Many Portuguese have been forced to leave their country to seek a brighter future, and an increasing number are applying for visas to former colonies such as Mozambique, Brazil and Angola.
