Staying in Portugal

On 29 June an amendment to the relevant legislation came into force extending the validity of documents and visas for staying in Portugal until June 30, 2025.

How does it work?

The documents and visas for staying in Portugal which expire from June 29, 2024, onwards or in the 15 days immediately preceding it, i.e. from June 14, 2024, will be accepted until June 30, 2025.

After June 30, 2025, the documents will only be accepted provided that the applicant proves that he/she has already made an appointment for their renewal.
