SEF releases appointment without prior scheduling in Coimbra

​The Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) will implement, as from next 8 January, a pilot project for appointment without prior scheduling in two appointment stations in Coimbra, by handing over of a limited number of tickets for the renewal of residence permits, residence permits under the community scheme and residence permits under the ARI/investment scheme (granting, renewal and family reunion).

It is a measure which will be tested and has the purpose to speed up appointments, increasing, therefore, the capacity of appointments.

Therefore, Loja do Cidadão of Coimbra will begin carrying out appointments on Saturdays without prior scheduling, from 08h30 to 13h30, with three open desks with capacity to 30 appointments.

Fifteen tickets for renewal of residence permits and fifteen more for residence permits under the community scheme will be handed over at the site.

At the ARI appointment stations of the Regional Delegation of Coimbra, working on Saturdays from 08h30 to 13h30 as well, six tickets for residence permits for investment activity will be handed over.

It should be stressed that free vacancies in each of the desks will be answered only.
