Default Are PT residencia certificates geographically transferable?

Can anyone tell me whether this document is transferrable across Portugal, or does it only grant the named individual (me) residency in the named camera/municipality of Oliveira do Hospital. I hope the size is ok to grasp what it is.

Municipality temporary residencia certificate?

I want to move to from mainland PT to Madeira, but I ended up locked down in the UK over the winter, and now I'm waiting for the jab. So I'll be going to Madeira direct from the UK.

I'm actually hoping to use this document if required to return to PT to live for 6 months whilst I hunker down and work remotely there.

I don't know if they are standard across PT. Or even if this document has any magical properties whatsoever. I also have other docs from the Freguesia (Ervedal in Oliveira do Hospital) and a fiscal number.

Thanks, in advance.

I have same and reckon it entitles you to live anywhere. I'm assuming here the islands are the same as mainland. But I believe you need to exchange it for the new biometric card that some of us on here have applied for.

Yes you can use it to get back to Portugal but if you change address you will need an updated version with your new address on, start date will be same as original, don't know what the situation will be once you receive the biometric card.

Thanks EU.Flag for the link. On first and second reading I seem to fall between the cracks. Story of my life.
