This January, staff from the British Vice Consulate in Portimão will be holding surgeries in Silves and Monchique to provide information and guidance on registering as a resident with local Portuguese authorities.
If you live in Portugal for more than six months of the year, you should obtain a residency certificate from your local Town Hall. After living here for five years, you should apply to SEF, the Immigration and Borders Service, for permanent residency.
With the UK leaving the EU in 2019, if you intend to live permanently in Portugal, and want to benefit from the advantages of living here, it is very important to obtain your residência in order to be properly integrated and registered.
British Vice Consul Clive Jewell and Consular Officer Ana Sofia Bono, will be at the Biblioteca Municipal de Silves (Silves library), on Rua Latino Coelho on Tuesday 23rd January, and at the Câmara Municipal de Monchique (Monchique Town Hall) on Thursday 25th January, from 9.30am to 12.30pm on both days.
They will be pleased to answer questions relating to registering for residency, access to health services and other State support systems in Portugal.
There is no need to book or register to attend, simply go along on the day.
