Our visa application service starts with an assessment of your particular immigration needs and possibilities. Based on that we advise which of the many available visa types you should apply for (Highly Qualified Work, Work, Entrepreneurship, Own Income, Tech or StartUp) and accompany you on every step of the journey, including the collection of documents, filing of application and monitoring of the ongoing process.
The required document that you will need is the Certificado de Residência Permanente para Cidadão (UE/ EEE/ Suíça). This process requires a legal rental contract with proof of address from the local municipality and a list of documents from your country.
