Hi Everyone,  My wife and I are planning on moving over from Canada in early spring next year.  We are about to start our application for the D7 visa from the Portuguese consulate in Vancouver.   We have heard that you need to submit a six months rental agreement as part of your D7 application.  Is that correct?  What if you are not granted a visa but have already committed to a six months lease? 

The Vancouver consulate has an eVISA application portal.  It does not ask for a rental agreement to be submitted but it asks for the name of a person from your hotel, accommodation, etc.   Appreciate your help.  Thanks!

Hi, to the right of your page you will see there is a radio show that is on You Tube. Scroll down and you will see Portugueuse Visas Update, this radio show covers all those questions really well.

Actually, my understanding is the consulates want a year now.

Pretty sure hotels and AirBnBs don't count anymore either.

I'd suggest a consultation with Ei! for help.  You can find them in the directory.  They are professional and I've been working with them for awhile and they handle everything.  Really great people.

My understanding is you can break the lease after 3 months.  Maybe you can see about putting a contingency in the lease?

@alan-tan What makes the process worse is that different consulates can follow different rules.  So a consulate in the UK might only require 6 months lease while one in The US might require the full year.
