Ola

I was looking online and am curious if the years you study in Portugal count toward the 5 years for permanent residency/citizenship, or if you need to work for 5 years.

Obrigado

A lawyer told me they count, yes. Must admit, I was surprised to learn that.

Awesome, thanks for the info. Yeah that definitely seemed like one of those gray areas.
