Algarve British consular staff to advise on residency

Staff from the British Vice Consulate in Portimão will be holding surgeries in Silves and Monchique later this month to provide information and guidance on registering as a resident with local Portuguese authorities.  

According to information supplied by the British Embassy, Britons who live in Portugal for more than six months of the year, should obtain a residency certificate from their local Town Hall. After living here for five years, British nationals should apply to SEF, the Immigration and Borders Service, for permanent residency.
Those who intend to live permanently in Portugal after the UK leaves the EU in 2019, and want to benefit from the advantages of living here, it is very important to obtain a residência permit in order to be properly integrated and registered.

British Vice Consul Clive Jewell and Consular Officer Ana Sofia Bono, will be at the Silves library, on Rua Latino Coelho on Tuesday 23 January, and at the Monchique Town Hall on Thursday 25 January, from 9.30am to 12.30pm on both days.
They will 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.


Is it intended to have any of these surgeries in Eastern Algarve?
Kind regards
