Temporary protection for displaced Ukrainian citizens

Upon arrival in Portugal, a special mechanism is activated for the immediate authorisation of a residence permit, called Temporary Protection Title, with automatic assignment of Social Security identification numbers (NISS), tax identification numbers (NIF) and access to the National Health System.

Temporary protection holds an initial duration of one year, but may be extended by two six-monthly periods, provided that the conditions preventing the return of people to their country still apply.
