Brazilians form the largest immigrant community in Portuguese territory

As of Monday, the 26th, Brazilians will be able to legally look for a job in Portugal for six months. The Portuguese government published an update on Law n. 18/2022, known as the Foreigners Law, which establishes rules for the entry and exit of people of another citizenship in Portuguese territory. To do so, you will need to apply for a job search visa, which is valid for 120 days and can be extended for another 60 days. The document can be requested in the Brazil, at the Portuguese Embassy or at one of the consulates. One of the requirements to be approved is to present an air ticket that proves the return to Brazil. If you can prove an employment relationship with a contract, the Brazilian will be able to apply for a residence permit and stay in the country. Otherwise, it will be necessary to return to Brazil and a new application can only be made one year after the expiry of the previous visa. In addition, the Portuguese government has also made a residence visa available for digital nomads, upon proof of employment relationship or service provision contract.

Portugal has invested in a series of initiatives to facilitate the trip of Brazilians to the country. At the beginning of the country, the Portuguese authorities announced that it will be possible to proceed with the application for Portuguese citizenship in a virtual way, using the local Justice website. The measure will take effect at the end of 2022 and will make requests more agile and less bureaucratic. Applications for citizenship are the most requested at the Instituto dos Registos e Notariado (IRN), and deadlines reach ten times the periods proposed by law due to high demand. The online process has already been adopted by other segments, such as renewal. Brazil is in the isolated leadership as the largest immigrant community in Portuguese territory, representing 29.2% of all foreigners in a regular situation in the country.
