This week the e-VISA, the new platform of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs aimed at simplifying visa application procedures, came into operation.
With the introduction of the e-VISA, visa applications and the sending of documents necessary for the processing of the application can now be made electronically.
In addition to these new functionalities, applicants are given a personal access code that allows them to follow up the process online, broken down into four stages: "registered application", "application under examination", "application granted or refused" and "visa issued".
This new platform will be further developed with a view to including in the future the possibility of paying the administrative fee for processing the application.
The e-VISA platform is one of the new features of the New Model of Consular Management of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and continues the effort to digitalize the entire document processing of visa applications. This measure contributes to the operationalization of the National Plan for the Implementation of the Global Pact on Migration (Resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 141/2019, approved on August 20).
The e-VISA is available on the “Portal das Comunidades” and the Visa Portal and can be accessed in five languages: Portuguese, English, French, Ukrainian and Russian.
The Portuguese Government has launched a programme that opens vacant public property to private investment through public tendering, aiming the renovation and use of state heritage properties throughout the country, namely through conversion into hotels.
This project is called ‘REVIVE’ and it includes 33 public properties, that can be seen in http://revive.turismodeportugal.pt/en
The model is based in concessions that can last between 30 and 50 years, depending on the building.
At the moment, it is running the public tender for the concession of a historic property in the city of Évora (Paço de Valverde Farm) allowing the right to install and explore a hotel unit (more information about this tender on http://revive.turismodeportugal.pt/en/en-quinta-valverde).
