Good news I suppose! Hopefully everyone will start getting scheduled according to when their initial application was approved.
SEF implements ARI schedules in chronological order
The Service of Foreigners and Borders (SEF), based on the principles of equality, opportunity and availability, implements, from today, the scheduling methodology for granting residence permit for investment activity (ARI) in chronological order, through notification to citizens and their representatives. As for the expressions of interest in the SAPA Portal, the SEF began to contact citizens with appointments for ARI concession in chronological order of payment date of the analysis fee and its application status accepted, until the first quarter of 2020, thus allowing the availability of a schedule for all investors in a more transparent manner, balanced and fair.
