Resume of Visas procedures in the consulates
According to an Announcement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Portugal, the processing of all national visas was resumed today, August 5 in the consulates.
In recent weeks there has been a reduction in the processing of national visas at the Portuguese Consulates in various countries, limiting their issuance to specific types of visas, such as visas for highly qualified workers.
However, as of today, these limitations no longer exist and it is now possible for a foreigner to obtain a visa for Portugal, regardless of its type.
It should be noted, however, that the processing of Schengen visas is suspended until 15 August 2020, except for the situations allowed by Order 7595-A/2020.
