The Immigration and Borders Services (“SEF”)  will not be able to process new applications until November according to APEMIP (Associação dos Professionais e Empresas de Mediação Imobiliária de Portugal). “SEF” continues understaffed and overwhelmed with the backlog of existing requests.


The Immigration and Borders Service will authorise Golden Visa applicants wishing to make property investments in the Greater Lisbon region to submit their applications to offices outside the capital area as is currently required.  The decentralisation move intends to reduce the current growing backlog of submissions.
