me and my wife have had temporary residency in albufeira since may 2016. it needs renewing before 30th may 2022. can we renew this at the town hall before this date? we spend about 22 weeks a year in our apartment at quinta da bella vista. we have filled our S E F application forms in and are waiting to hear from them giving us a date for an interview. we have tried filling in the automatic renewal forms but don't have the 9 digit number they ask us for. we are both in out 70s would welcome a little advice.    tony.

Yes, you should go to the town hall. There is no sign when those of us with permanent residency that has expired will be able to apply for the new document. Meanwhile we have a paper that gives us indefinite leave to remain.

Make sure you take all the documents required.

I don't know if you can just turn up or whether you have to make an appointment.

I've just realised I need to do this, so I've filled in the form on SEF and downloaded a QR certificate.  What happens next? How do you get a date for an appointment?

Apparently the successor organisation to the SEF will send us a summons to go to their office. Those of us who obtained our receipt and 'permission to remain' paper last December are still waiting.

Ok thanks Tom.  Does the QR paper stop them stamping your passport or do they do that anyway?

As a resident your passport should not be stamped nor should your presence be recorded on the database of tourists. Have the paperwork ready to show when your passport is inspected both on departure and arrival.

Amazingly I have just had an invite from SEF to book an appointment for a new resident card (yes on a Sunday!)
The only problem is that the link takes me to a page with only 2 options;1)login to existing account or 2) create account.
Needless to say when I login in to my account, it has just three options; display application form 2)download residence certificate and 3)Log out!

Has anybody else managed to make an appointment with the SEF and if so how did you do it?

Thanks in advance.

Loads of people in albufeira got emails recently. I’d wait and see if Loulé comes available. People saying they’ll call Sef to see if this will be an option.

The SEF website definitely suggests the service will be available at a Town Hall. Maybe they haven't rolled it out yet. I guess cost could be an issue as each place offering the service will need a fingerprint scanner.

Scheduling an appointment (available only on January 2021)

Later SEF will notify you by email about scheduling an appointment to provide your biometric data (photo, signature and fingerprints) that will appear on your new residence permit.

The appointment will be held at a Town Hall that offers this service. You can choose a date and time for your appointment from the available slots in the Town Hall that is offering this service closest to your residence area.

they started with madeira island then cascais nr lisbon. loule was next to get it set up and many people have gone there. more places to offer the service but don't know when. lots of chat on social media - my advice is to wait for loule to become available or new places offering service.

Albufeira residents have all received the call.

I cannot even log on to the website, passwords and attempts to reset passwords are rejected. Everyone I have spoken to over the weekend and yesterday say they will wait until the process can be done in Albufeira. I for one will not spend €50 on train fares to go to an office in Lisbon only to be told I have forgotten one of the six hundred pieces of information no doubt required,
