We also provide relocation services to individual clients and companies wishing to settle in Portugal.
These services are often requested for the purposes of labour, students, entrepreneurs or retirees.
We also monitor the process of establishing residence and provide investment advice to foreign investors interested in obtaining a Golden Visa.
It is aimed at foreign citizens who, having entered Portugal without a residence visa, wish to remain here for more than one year in order to carry out a professional activity.
In order to obtain a residence permit, the Applicant must, among other things, prove that they are carrying out a professional activity in Portugal.
Step 1 – Request an Expression of Interest
After entering Portugal, the Applicant must submit the Expression of Interest request via an online platform.
Step 2 – Interview at SEF
Once the documentation has been analyzed by the Aliens and Borders Service (SEF), the Applicant will be allowed to schedule an interview at a regional SEF office to collect biometric data (photograph, fingerprints and signature).
Step 3 – Receiving the residence card
After the interview, the residence card will be sent to the Applicant’s address in Portugal.
Lamares, Capela & Associados provides its services to national and international individuals and companies.
