Law 27/2017 of 30 May, which has been in force since 1 June 2017, approves measures for uniform application and practical enforcement of the right of free movement of EU workers.

It aims to implement measures to facilitate the uniform exercise of workers’ rights in the context of the free movement of workers. A set of mechanisms is provided to ensure equal treatment of workers from the European Union and their families when they move to another Member-State.

To this end, the law establishes a set of national entities with authority to promote, analyze, monitor and support equal treatment of EU workers and members of their families, without discrimination on grounds of nationality, restrictions or obstacles to their free movement rights.

The specific national entities involved are:

The Institute of Employment and Vocational Training (IEFP, I.P.) that regards access to training, to employment, including assistance provided by employment services, and reintegration in the event of unemployment of EU workers;

The National Agency for Qualification and Vocational Education (ANQEP, I.P.), and the Directorate-General for Education (DGE), in access to qualification and education;

The Working Conditions Authority (ACT), in terms of employment and working conditions, including pay, dismissal, health and safety at work, membership of trade unions and eligibility for workers' representative bodies;

The Institute of Social Security (ISS, I.P.), on social benefits;

Tax and Customs Authority (AT), in tax benefits;

The Directorate-General for Employment and Labor Relations (DGERT), ANQEP, I.P., and the Directorate-General for Higher Education (DGES), in the field of access to and exercise of professions or activities;

The Commission for Equality and Against Racial Discrimination (CICDR), in the field of the refusal or restriction of the exercise of any economic, social or cultural rights by any person on grounds of their belonging to a particular race, color, nationality or ethnic origin;

The Institute of Housing and Urban Rehabilitation (IHRU, I.P.), in access to housing;

DGE, IEFP I.P., and ANQEP I.P., on access to education, apprenticeships and vocational training for children of European Union workers;

The Directorate-General for Economic Activities (DGAE), in the framework of liaison between economic activities and their operators and foreign workers and their families.

These entities, by their competence, provide the necessary information to all EU citizens, by obtaining legal advice and access to judicial sponsorship mechanisms to ensure effective judicial protection of their legally protected rights and interests, under the same terms and conditions provided for nationals.

The High Commission for Migration (ACM, I.P.) guarantees the disclosure of information regarding that Law.

Law 27/2017 of 30 May adopts measures for uniform application and practical enforcement of the right of free movement of workers, transposing Directive 2014/54/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014.

Década Internacional de Afrodescendentes (2015-2024)

A Assembleia Geral das Nações Unidas aprovou a Década Internacional de Afrodescendentes através da Resolução 68/237, para o período entre 2015-2024. 
A Década Internacional de Afrodescendentes surge da Declaração e Programa de Ação de Durban, da 3.ª Conferência Mundial Contra o Racismo, Discriminação Racial, Xenofobia e Intolerância. A Década decorre até ao final de 2024, e assenta nos seguintes domínios: reconhecimento, justiça, desenvolvimento e discriminação múltipla ou agravada das pessoas de descendência africana.
De acordo com as Nações Unidas, o objetivo principal é o de realçar a necessidade de reforçar a cooperação nacional, regional e internacional em relação ao pleno aproveitamento dos direitos económicos, sociais, culturais, civis e políticos de pessoas de descendência africana, bem como a sua participação plena e igualitária em todos os aspetos da sociedade. 
É recomendado aos Estados que desenvolvam um plano de actividades: a nível nacional, os Estados devem tomar medidas concretas e práticas por meio da adoção e efetiva implementação, nacional e internacional, de quadros jurídicos, políticas e programas de combate ao racismo, discriminação racial, xenofobia e intolerância correlata enfrentados por afrodescendentes, tendo em conta a situação particular das mulheres, meninas e jovens do sexo masculino nas seguintes atividades:
Reconhecimento
Justiça
Desenvolvimento
Discriminação múltipla ou agravada
Além das atividades desenvolvidas que têm vindo a contribuir para a Declaração e Programa de Ação de Durban, e em linha com a Década Internacional de Afrodescendentes, o Alto Comissariado para as Migrações, I.P., desenhou, em concordância com as recomendações internacionais, um plano de atividades nacional para dar maior visibilidade a esta temática e promover uma estrutura mais organizada e sistemática ao longo da Década.
O Plano em questão inclui a produção e disseminação de várias publicações em diferentes suportes (brochuras, panfletos, campanhas, DVD), bem como momentos de reconhecimento da presença Africana em Portugal, nomeadamente através da realização de uma exposição e de uma conferência internacional.
Aquele é um documento aberto e dinâmico, que visa incentivar a discussão e a conceção eventual de mais medidas e atividades, indo ao encontro de algumas recomendações a Portugal, expressas no âmbito do Comité das Nações Unidas para a Eliminação da Discriminação Racial.

What are immigrant associations and what do they do?

Immigrant associations are privileged spaces for organizing cultural belonging, community and participation, in which people are not mere recipients, but actors involved in defending their rights and promoting conditions of social welfare.
As an inalienable right and a pole of dynamic civic participation and democratic learning, the association is a form of active citizenship in the pursuit of ideas and projects in support of a common cause.
 
The action of these immigrant associations is dynamic and proactive. Their work is developed in such diverse areas as school support for children and youth, legal support, Portuguese and other countries’ language / culture lessons, leisure activities and cultural / recreational events.
Awareness and information campaigns directed to the Portuguese society, political intervention stocks, on the issues of immigration and the fight against discrimination, and development projects in countries of origin, are also part of the agenda.
In total, spread across the country, more than a hundred, immigrant associations currently recognized by the ACM, PI and representing different countries of origin: Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Conakry, Cape Verde, Sao Tome and Principe, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Russia, China, among others.
To provide all necessary information on associations, the ACM, PI created GATAI - Technical Support Office for Immigrant Associations, operating in CNAI - National Centre for Immigrant Support, Lisbon.

I am going to buy a house. What shall I do?

To accomplish the purchase of your house, you must present some documents that identify the property and confirm the legitimacy of the owner and the buyer. The acquisition of an immovable property in Portugal, because it is subject to the tax payment, forces the registration within the Tax Administration to obtain the respective Tax Number.
To accomplish the purchase of your house, you must present some documents that identify the property and confirm the legitimacy of the owner and the buyer:
 
  • Land Registry Certificate (or Title Search ) 
  • Legal Description
  • Usage Permit
  • Home licensing
Through information provided by the land registry, you can find out what the structure of a building, the legitimacy of the seller of the property and what kind of charges can be applicable on it (mortgages, seizures, etc.).
 
  • Face-to-face, in any Land Registry Office (see the list), an entity that has the  full descriptions of properties;
  •  The site “Predial Online” it is possible to require a permanent certificate of the land register and the simplified land information.

The Usage Permit aims to certify for what use is the property for and that it is fit for the respective purpose. This permit must be requested in the City Council of the county where the property is located.
In the act of purchase and sale it may, however, show just one proof of license issuing request if it has not been issued yet.
 
Home licensing is a document describing the main technical and functional characteristics of the property. This must be directly requested in the City Council of the county where the property is located.
 
The acquisition of an immovable property in Portugal, because it is subject to the tax payment, forces the registration within the Tax Administration to obtain the respective Tax Number.
