The government of Portugal has announced delays in issuing resident permits, and appointments are not available for any type of residence permit application.
Additional Information: As previously reported, the government recently stated that immigration documents or visas that expire on or after Nov. 10 will be accepted until June 30, 2024. Automatic extension has been granted to help those who have been impacted by processing delays.
The Portuguese government is currently transferring administrative powers from the Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) to the Agency for Integration, Migration and Asylum as part of a larger restructuring of the immigration system. Some AIMA delegations are still awaiting the completion of officer training and staffing.
BAL Analysis: AIMA’s ongoing reorganization is making it difficult to predict when new appointments will become available. Reorganization challenges may result in further processing delays, and limited appointment availability is expected to extend into 2024. BAL will provide further updates as information becomes available.
