First ‘Consular One Stop Shop’ on March 12 in Faro

Carrying on from its ‘Consulate in the Community’ events last year, the British Vice Consulate in Portimão is organising three consular events, entitled “Consular One Stop Shop”, in March and April this year. The first is on March 12 in Faro.
Consular representatives have teamed up with Segurança Social (Social Security), IMT (DVLA equivalent), SEF (Immigration Police), ARS (Regional Health Authority), Santa Casa de Misericórdia (charity), AFPOP, CIMAAL (Consumer Dispute Resolution Centre), the Royal British Legion and three Town Halls – Faro, Portimão and Tavira – to create three one-stop-shop events for the community.
Representatives from the different entities will provide information about their services aimed at helping local foreign residents. There will also be a number of charities and associations present.
These events are intended to help foreign residents understand what is available to them in Portugal, and also to help the authorities understand any challenges there may be in providing assistance to non-Portuguese residents.
Attendance is free.
The events will start at 4pm when Clive Jewell, Vice Consul, will introduce the organisations present, and will finish at 6pm.
The events will be held on:
• March 12 at the Loja do Cidadão, Mercado Municipal in Faro
• March 19 at the TEMPO Theatre in Portimão
• April 2 at the Municipal Library in Tavira
