Portugal’s home affairs minister has said that 45 more trainee immigration officers have started at Lisbon airport and another 49 electronic passport gates have been installed.

Eduardo Cabrita, who was speaking at Lisbon airport recalled that earlier in the year 22 other immigration officers had been hired for Lisbon.
Last weekend, the immigration and border service investigation and inspection union demanded that the government “call the airport operator, ANA, to order, and ensure that the officers had acceptable working conditions”.
The union accused Vinci Airports, which owns ANA Aeroportos, of not attributing decent rooms for them to eat, restricting them to common areas, while maintaining the same interview rooms and toilets as when the airport handled a third of the numbers it does nowadays.
