I just had the SEF appointment yesterday for my D7 residency in Portugal. I submitted all my documents, paid my fee, and received the paper temporary proof. I, of course, haven’t received the actual card yet. Unfortunately, a close family member has just gone in for serious emergency surgery. I would like to go and be with them at this time. Can I leave (and return) with the paper received from SEF as proof of my residence status?
Thank you for any help.
