SEF FORMS ARE REQUIRED BY LAW
Since 2015, Portugal has a law that requires anyone who provides paid holiday accommodation to register the entry, exit and identification data of all non-Portuguese citizens who use such accommodation. This law has entered into force in Portugal since the implementation of the 1990 Schengen Agreement, which aims to put an end to human trafficking and other illegal practices. In this case, it is specifically Article 45 of the Schengen Agreement and a recent Local Accommodation law in Portugal.
The inspection body for the movement of foreigners is the SEF or Migration and Borders Service. When staying at a hotel, guests are always required to show their identity documents upon check-in. Duration informed als are also required to report guest information to the SEF – this is called the Accommodation Bulletin. When you make a reservation at a Local Accommodation establishment registered on our Website, Madeira Rental is obliged to communicate your presence and details to the Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) within 3 days of your arrival. We will request information through an email link or message that will be sent to SEF.
If the Short Term Rental where you are located does not require this information, it means that you are not complying with the law and most likely will not be able to support you in unexpected situations.
