Plano Estratégico para as Migrações

The implementation of the Strategic Plan for Migration (2015-2020), led by the Portuguese Alto Comissariado para as Migrações (ACM) outlines a transversal strategy for the integration of immigrants, the promotion of the inclusion of new nationals, the coordination of migration flows, reinforcement of migratory legality and the quality of migration services, as well as the reinforcement of incentive policies, monitoring and support for the return of national emigrant citizens.

In this context, DGES participates in various measures to reach the Plan’s goals, regarding all issues linked to higher education, namely issues about the recognition of foreign qualifications.

It should also be mentioned, that ACM develops important work regarding the welcoming and integration of refugees to Portugal, linked to the European Migration Plan.
