Changes to Immigration Law

On 25th August of 2022, Law no. 18/2022 was published, amending the legal regime for the entry, stay, exit and expulsion of foreign citizens from the national territory.

This law aims to create special conditions for CPLP national citizens; create a new visa to search for employment; and create a residence visa for professional activities performed remotely outside national territory ("Digital Nomads”).

In addition, it is foreseen that other public entities may collect biometric data for civil identification purposes, namely the “Instituto dos Registos e do Notariadoand the “Espaços Cidadão”, who are now also competent for issuing and renewing residence permits for British citizens who are beneficiaries of the United Kingdom's Exit Agreement from the European Union.
