17 months is actually pretty rapid progress.
Most current people will wait about 22 months or more.
Congratulations.

Hi, Abhi - is this final approval (youā€™ve gone to SEF offices and had the interview and biometrics) or is this pre-approval (youā€™ve submitted your application, criminal background check, etc. and SEF has notified your lawyer that your are approved conditionally - awaiting the interview/biometrics)?

Congratulations ! 17 months is not bad at all. My initial application was submitted 22 months ago, and biometric appointment was in early March 2022, in Coimbra. Hoping to hear good news in the coming months.

Do you mean you submitted your application Dec 2020? Otherwise, that seems like a really quick timeline.

Congratulations. :tada:

Your timing was just a bit longer than mine. We applied in December 2020 just as you did, and our final approval came through in late April 2022.

Hi guys, have u heard anything regarding SEF in Azores, been waiting for more than 6 months now after biometrics ? feel like ages

Late Dec. 2021 Lisbon and spouse early Jan. Coimbra. Still waiting. Any day now.

I had biometrics appointment in Coimbra on Dec 3, 2021 and just received a notification that I was approved and to pay for the card. My husband who was the primary applicant, did the biometrics 2 days before mine in Porto got his final approval about month ago.
