a work visa doesn't need to be difficult

It's not enough to meet the requirements. The Consulate and Sef have to agree, because it is not always clear whether a function is highly qualified, even in the case of senior management.

Diversified works that do not require university attendance. The visa process is similar to that of the highly qualified but there is an additional step: it is necessary to apply for a work permit at IEFP before applying for the visa.

With the current shortage of labour there has been a greater openness of the Portuguese authorities to the legalization of this type of workers.

highly qualified employees of art. 90

If your colleague is in a highly qualified position (see requirements here) you can apply for residence in Portugal directly without a visa. You can then travel to Portugal on a simple tourist visa.

Depending on the case, this solution may be more advantageous than applying for a work visa before travelling.

international transfers between companies

They are possible for companies of the same group under Article 124 of the law but are limited to a maximum period of 3 years and require that the employee already has a previous employment relationship in the country of origin of at least 3 months to one year.

Allows the mobility of managers, specialists and trainees.

blue card

highly qualified mobility in the eu

Blue Card holders may work in any acceding European country, provided they perform highly qualified functions.

However, the passage from one country to another is not straightforward as it requires a local reissue of the Blue card.

Only foreigners resident in a European country for more than 12 to 24 months (varies by country) can apply for a Blue Card.

EU residence certificate

mandatory for Europeans

Mandatory for all EU citizens staying in Portugal for more than 90 days.

It is a document that proves the residence in Portugal with the national and foreign immigration authorities (S.E.F.).

This registration is applicable to the entire family including children.

Unqualified jobs

manifestação

de interesse

art 88

The expression of interest under Art. 88 is an exceptional measure for the legalisation of immigrants who have come to Portugal without a work visa, but with legal entry into national territory (in the case of the tourist visa) can, with a work contract, apply for a residence permit.

The great success of the expression of interest has created quite long deadlines for obtaining the residence card by this means.
