Step by step process

Step #1 — Interview with us
Go through the interview process to see if you qualify for the high-qualification program. This is an important step in which we need to check your qualifications and good intentions.
Step #2 — Pay for SEF appointment, NIF, and NISS
You can do it all yourself and for free with our guides. But if you want, an assistant will sign you up to file and help you make your tax and social security numbers. It will cost 350 euros, which will be included in the contracting amount.
Step #3 — Contracting with your employer and you
Once you have an entry, NIF and NISS - we prepare two contracts: the first one with your foreign employer or client for hiring, and the second one for hiring you at our Portuguese office.

Lawyers have designed comprehensive contracts and documentation, which we send to you and your employer for approval.
Step #4 — Payments
Your employer or client should pay your taxes, salary and our 10% monthly commission by the 10th of each month.

If you plan to legalize under Article 90.2 in Portugal, you must start making payments 1-3 months before applying to the SEF.

Example. For a salary of 1800€ a month, the payment is 2453€, of which 984€ are taxes, and the salary is transferred to you to any EU bank account when it becomes available.
Step #5 — Find an apartment and start to prepare docs
While you are waiting to apply to the SEF, you must find housing with an official lease for at least a year and prepare documents proving your qualifications and education as described in the guide.
Step #6 — Prepare for an application to the SEF
On the correct date, you apply for a residence permit under 90.2 in the SEF.

If you 100% match all the criteria, you do not have to spend money on a lawyer; you will apply on your own. In a perfect case:

👉 your diploma and profession should match,
👉 be apostilled and translated into Portuguese in Portugal,
👉 have proofs at least 3-5 years of experience,
👉 and have 2-3 paid salaries (recibas) and social security payments.

In all other cases, we recommend bringing a lawyer with you. SEFs are very different; you can get caught by an employee who doesn't even know the law.  

In SEF, they will scan your documents and give you a confirmation they accepted. After that, you are waiting for your residence permit card. Sometimes they can ask to bring some additional documents, but in 99% of cases, they do that. The entire list with examples in the tracker →
Step #7 — Family reunion
While you are waiting to apply to the SEF, you must find housing with an official lease for at least a year and prepare documents proving your qualifications and education as described in the guide.
