One of the benefits of being able to do everything from a small country, Panama... today we received our D7 Visas almost 1 month to the day after applying. So, we will arrive in Lisbon on March 29. 

Question: Our SEF appointment shows as July 23 but the D7 Visa expires on July 26. Should we be concerned? What happens if there is a delay?

LOL - the 07/23 is the date of the immigration law it turns out 😀 Our actual date is the end of May - whew. We're OK.

Olá Jordan, 

Can you elaborate on the immigration law and 7/23 date? I'm curious as to what you are referencing might be changing. 

Thanks in advance.

@charw23 I don't have details. It's what my lawyer said: "The date 23/07 is the date of the Portuguese Immigration Law."

It's in reference to this bit on the D7 Visa.

Congrats Jordan!

We are a bit behind you having met w/VFS in SF 3 weeks ago. What part of PT are you headed to?

@jar Initially Lisbon. We are likely to settle in either Sintra or Setubal unless we find a different area once we go.

Hope that you will tune in Thursday at 7:30pm Lisbon time for the first battle of the "Best Place to live in Portugal." We will have fun and lots of information on the first 2 regions. I will do the Algarve and a mystery person is doing Lisbon and central Portugal. Hope to "see" you in the video chat!

@peggyl we watched and loved it 😀 Of course, we won't know for sure until we get there in April but we'll have a look around, though my heart is pretty set on being close to Lisbon (Setubal or Sintra probably).

We watched and voted for you and the Algarve not sure who tallied the votes I think there was some monkey business going on you clearly were the victor !

muito obrigada, I don't think the voting thing was explained very well. I knew it was coming and still it seemed like it was too quickly thrown out there without explanation for direction. Oh well, It was fun and informative I hope for everyone. The Algarve it not just beaches & rude tourists and that is what I wanted to get out there. It is worth a look for those who have still not found their  special place.

Thanks for the good wishes. 😎
