Portugal creates a new visa for remote workers, citizens looking for jobs and facilitates the visa for Countries of the Portuguese Language Community

The Portuguese Government has approved a series of changes to the Portuguese Residency Law. We highlight the following:

  • New Visa for remote workers – Remote workers will be able to apply to their own specific visa;
  • Visa for job search – Citizens looking for jobs in Portugal but without any contract signed yet will be able to enter Portugal in a Visa valid for 120 days, renewable for more 60 days;
  • Visa for citizens of the Portuguese Language Community – Special conditions for citizens of this community were created which will, along other particularities, waive SEF’s preliminary decision.
