YouTube Video link is here.

The description chapters should be added in the next day. Gilda and Beatriz covered the New Digital Nomad Visa as it stands currently. It was the first time we had seen Beatriz since our preparation call for our VFS appointment last December. Nice to see her and have her contribute what is going on at the consulates. We could see in the comments all the happy customers Beatriz has helped.

We will all be following our Expats Portugal member @maxine on her post here as she bravely tackles being one of the first digital nomad applicants. We are sure she will be fine with Gilda and Ei! at her side.

I was finally able to have Gilda tackle the burning question we have in my Temporary Resident Post located here. I have marked it unresolved. 

"In Law No. 18/2022 of 25 | Dre, Article 58, 6 - With the granting of a residence visa, a pre-residence permit is issued, which contains information on obtaining the residence permit and the provisional allocation of tax identification, social security and national health service numbers. Does that mean they will not be requiring a NIF for the D7 application?"

Red Alert!!!!! Gilda dropped what appears to be some very bad news last night. We have members reporting the same issue. Visas are not being issued due to the lack of SEF appointments. The chapters and post for last night's stream are in the works.

@jonesdn2020 Is this just for the new digital nomad visa, D-7s too?  Hopefully the updates to the SEF system will be improved soon? as news states 2023, online renewals maybe freeing up some agents?, or is the whole system at an almost stoppage due to the robo calls causing havoc daily?

@ggiles This is a global SEF issue for all services. Gilda mentions sympathizing with the workers since the government has not adequately informed them of their futures.  They were already doing auto renewals and just extended it. That may continue well into the future if something does not change.

Bloody, WhatsApp is ruining immigration!! We need to go back to rotary dial landlines.
