Wondering if anyone has had issues with this? I paid for the residency card on January 16 after my GV application was finally approved. Still no word a month later. Also, my lawyers told me my wife and underage son, who had their biometrics on roughly the same date as my 28 March 2022 appointment - 28 and 30 March 2022 respectively - will only be approved after my payment. Also no news on that either.
One month is not a ‘long wait’ under the GV in Portugal.
It took over 1 year after the payment/bio to receive my card, and that was back in 2019.
Now it’s even slower!
