Immigration in Marquês de Pombal & Around

To extend a visa or a 90-day period of stay after arriving in Portugal, contact the SEF; major tourist towns also have branches in addition to Cascais and Setúbal in the Lisboa area. Attendance is by appointment only.

As entry regulations are already liberal, you’ll need to provide convincing proof of employment or financial independence (or a pretty strong story otherwise), proof of shelter, a plane ticket out (reserved but not necessarily paid for), and proof of a bank-account balance (in euros or converted to a euro equivalent) with €40 per each day that you want to extend by. A 30-day or less extension costs €48.70; for 31 to 90 days you'll pay €65.
