Only just trying to get an appointment to apply for PT Residency

 

 

Have sent E-Mails,written letters, Tried phones Zero response, Is there anybody there?

 

Still in the Uk sent a E-mail to SEF, was told contact your Embassy in your own country. VFS Global are a secret society they never answer to anybody

Sent E-mails to PT Embassy Portimào No responce

Sent e-mails to Pt Embassy Uk.  No response 

 

If did not own property in PT would consider looking at another countries, but they are probably just as bad.

Sorry you're having such a frustrating experience! Hope you're able to find some help soon.

Have you looked at the holiday calendar? I think I read that there are a lot of national holidays in Portugal, so that could explain the complete radio silence you're encountering.

Sorry Paul. I know how frustrating that must be.

For what it's worth, I am going through Ei! and everything has gone smoothly so far.

Boa sorte

Thanks everyone

I know I can use Agents to process the application, However I think you should not have to pay third party agents just to arrange an appointment  which is your fundamental right. Whether the PT embassy/SEF accept you at the appointment is a different matter. but the process of booking an appointment should be open to everybody.

I was just talking to someone who was saying everything bureaucratic in Portugal is delayed because of the elections. I have no idea why other things should be delayed because of this but just saying what I was told. It seems to stop everything?
