To be heard in parliament, in the framework of a regimental hearing, in the Committee on Constitutional Affairs, Rights, Freedoms and Guarantees, Mariana Vieira da Silva said that “more than four thousand citizens have already registered on this platform”, having attributed this result to “extensive dissemination work by the ACM [High Commissioner for Migration]”.

"To ensure that no one is left behind, in the scope of vaccination with covid-19, an online platform was created that allows the registration of foreign citizens with no utente number yet,” stressed the minister.

According to the minister, the pandemic reinforced the need for a public response to foreigners living in Portugal and stressed that as early as March 2020 it was determined that whoever was in an irregular situation in the country, but with a pending process with the Foreigners Service and Borders (SEF), would have their situation temporarily settled, something that was renewed in November.

In that regard, she announced that these deadlines "will soon be extended through a new order that gives more protection to immigrants who are in this situation", however, having not yet set a date.
