The End of SEF and the creation of AIMA

The extinction of the Foreigners and Borders Service (SEF) has been carried out with a lot of ink over the last two years, when the end of this service was approved in Parliament. And now it's really official. The SEF was even abolished on October 29th and all its police and administrative functions will now be carried out by other institutions. One of them is the recently created Agency for Integration, Migrations and Asylum (AIMA), which will be responsible for requests for residence permits from foreign citizens arriving in Portugal.
