New Citizen Card for Foreigners

According to new information released, Portugal’s Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) has started issuing new ‘Permanent Residence Certificate of the European Union’ cards.  These cards, which were first issued on the 9th of January this year are identical to the National Citizen’s Card in format, material and content and will replace the current paper or tri folded resident card.

The new card will be issued to residents from within the European Union who have lived in Portugal/Madeira for more than five years, while the ID card itself complies with tough security standards and contains physical secure data that is internationally recommended for this type of identity card.
