Amendments to Programa Regressar published

 On January 28th, 2021, Portaria no. 23/2021 was published, amending Portaria no. 214/2019, of July 5th which established the Support Measure for the Return of Portuguese emigrants to the country, within Programa Regressar. This measure involves the attribution of economic support to Portuguese emigrants, Portuguese descendants, and their family members, with the purpose of promoting and simplifying their return to Portugal and treasure the Portuguese communities and their connections to the Country.

The abovementioned amendment extends the application of this Support Measure until the end of 2023 and broadens its subjective scope, being now eligible to apply to the latter not only the Portuguese emigrants and their family members with an employment contract in Portugal, but also the ones that return to the Country and incorporate their own companies or create their own jobs.
