How do I know my GV application status?


In the light of recent announcements I’m trying to understand the status of my GV application - is anyone able to advise what status would define my case?
Here are the facts - i applied for the GV online in December 21…i an received an electronic response a few days later to say the application is “Situação do Requerimento Em análise”. …(I did a capital transfer through a Portuguese bank).
Is the next step now “pre-approved”…I’ve been in my current status for over a year - is that usual?

FYI- I already moved to Lisbon and travel in & out on UK passport without problems but have nothing to prove my status

If when you go to the ari portal you get something that says “Application accepted” or “Candidatura Aceite” you are pre-approved.

The next step is getting a biometrics appointment - those should become available in the coming months for you (and me, I’m in a similar position to you). Your lawyer should jump on booking appointments as soon as they are available. Talk with them about the specifics

Thank you for replying.
The latest status seems to still be ‘under analysis’ ;(
I guess I still have to wait ( and hope the rules aren’t changed retrospectively) :pray:t4:

You’re waiting with the other people in this thread SEF Pre-Approval : Sharing Status - #859 by ohbee

If you know your date more accurately, you can figure out how soon you can expect pre-approval based on who else is getting preapproval. But it’s a bit mixed up, some folks seem to get preapproval faster than others on the same date.
