My husband and I are going to submit applications in London for the D7 visa, we will both be retired. Note that on the Portugal Consulate website under General Documentation it states "Criminal Record Certificate from the country of origin or the country where the applicant is residing for over a year." We both have visa's from South Africa in our UK passports valid for one more year. We have not resided in South Africa since February 2020. Do we need to also supply Police Certificate from SA, as well as UK. No worries about having a criminal record there, and getting a clean certificate, but it is very costly and time consuming to obtain.
Have not been able to successfully get accurate information from Vfs Global in London, has anyone else experienced having to supply numerous police certificates?
Would welcome any advice.
