On 5 April 2019, an amendment to the Tech Visa programme came into force.

The programme aims at certifying companies for the employment of foreign nationals who intend to work in a highly skilled activity in Portugal. Previously it was restricted to companies that were active in the technological and innovation areas.

The amendment has extended the type of companies that can apply for certification, thus eliminating the condition limiting it to technological and innovation areas.
