Permanent Residency

The permanent residence permit is a permit that allows foreign citizens to live in Portugal for an unlimited period. For those who are not elegible for Portuguese nationality, this is the only legal way to live in Portugal indefinitely. In case you want to apply for a PR (Permanent Residence) permit, you need an A2 level language certificate! You can enrol in one of our classes and at the end you will receive this language certificate, that is one of the documents you will have to show to SEF.

We charge 90€ for this certificate (200€ fee in case of students who don’t take any classes at Portuguese Connection. Simply want to take the A2 level exam).
