Ukraine: Information for people arriving in Portugal


[News updated on March 7th, 2022]

Obs: Updated information on the situation in Ukraine is now centralized on the page 'Ukraine: Information and support available in Portugal'.

Given the conflict situation in Ukraine, the Portuguese government has applied the temporary protection regime for people who are moving from Ukraine to Portugal.

Under this regime, no proof of life risk is required upon entering Portugal and the necessary documentation is automatically assigned, including tax identification numbers, social security numbers and access numbers to the National Health Service.

The  Immigration and Border Service is providing exclusive services for Ukrainian citizens in its delegations and National Support Centers for Migrant Integration (CNAIM), to handle requests for temporary protection.
