Automatic renewals for foreign citizens with residence permits expiring up to September 30

The approximately 84,000 foreign citizens with residence permits in Portugal that expire on or before September 30 can, as of today, renew them automatically on the portal of the Foreigners and Borders Service (SEF). In a statement, SEF said that residence permits expiring in the following quarter can be renewed automatically without the need to go in person to a service desk, with the citizen simply accessing “Área Pessoal” with their correct details (email and password) on the SEF portal and going to “Renovação Automática” (automatic renewal).
