Abstract

This paper analyzes both the constitutional and the administrative law perspectives of immigration law in Portugal. In the first part, an account of the constitutional principle of assimilation between the rights and duties of Portuguese citizens and those of foreigners is offered. In the second part, the most relevant aspects of the Immigration Act are analyzed: the admission of foreigners, the residence of foreigners and the status of residents, the removal of foreigners from the Portuguese territory and the principles of administrative procedure.

Keywords: Foreigners' rights, Principle of assimilation, immigration law, Portuguese Constitutional Law, Portuguese Administrative Law
