New residence permits for UK nationals
Has anybody received an email inviting them to book an appointment to provide biometric data for the new residence permit yet?
I registered on brexit.sef.pt in December but haven't heard anything yet.
we have not heard anything yet, although we did register after you.
Still awaiting email to book an appointment.
i had been trying without success to register on their web site. so i phoned and spoke to a fellow who talked me through the process. and now i have a certificate to say i have applied for residency. i haven't heard more since about two weeks. i am assuming they will get back to me. but if not i will phone again.
My EU Citizen Registration Certificate expires tomorrow. Mine was only valid for a year.
It seems like these Residence Permit Application Certificates take precedence in terms of residency, but I assume I'll still need to present my EU certificate as identification in some situations, which I hope doesn't present any problems given that it's expired.
Question: What exactly are we being issued when the system is finally in place?
It's a permanent residence card based on our rights under the Brexit withdrawal agreement? We can live here forever based on it?
(I'm trying to decide about buying a house, but hard to decide when you only have a certificate with a QR code on it!)
