Ombudsman points out residence permit renewal and social security among immigrants’ main concerns

Praia, Sep 11 (Inforpress) – The Ombudsman, António Espírito Santo, pointed out that among the main concerns of immigrants resident in the country are the renewal of residence permits and access to social security.

António Espírito Santo made this speech to the press, on the sidelines of the meeting held this Tuesday with the African communities resident in Cabo Verde.

As explained, the issue of visa and residence permit renewal “is at the center of concerns”, but the official said that, collaterally, the employers use this situation and do not discount to INPS and workers are weakened.

António Espírito Santos acknowledged that the immigrant has difficulties to rent a house, an aspect that could often help them in renewing or acquiring the right of residence permit.
