Hi everyone! Seeking some guidance
Our family has applied for a Golden Visa. We have made the required investment, and submitted all required documents.
We received “pre-approval” end of May, and next step is Biometrics appointment with SEF. As I am sure most are aware, SEF appointments are just not easily available currently, especially for GV related appointments.
We are eager to get to Portugal ASAP and our lawyer has advised us that assuming we have the proper visitor visas (my wife will require a Schengen Visa) in place, we will have the right to enter the country and stay indefinitely with this pre-approval and await our biometrics appointment.
Does anyone have any experience with this situation? IS this ok? We do not want to enter Portugal and overstay visas if obtaining a SEF biometric appointment could take over the 3 month validity of the Schengen or visitor visa?
