Online temporary protection request – SEF – Borders and Immigration Service

The need to streamline temporary protection for displaced Ukrainians has led the Borders and Immigration Service (SEF) to set up an online trilingual desk (Portuguese, English, and Ukrainian).

SEFforUkraine can only be used by citizens over age, as the vulnerability of minors means their next of kin must be verified at one of the 24 SEF assistance counters exclusively for this purpose, open throughout the country, as well as in the Autonomous Region of Madeira.

During the process, citizens under temporary protection have access to a taxpayer number, social security number and national health service number, so they can have immediate access to the various services available, as well as the job market.
