Regional Directorate for the Communities

Welcome to the
Regional Directorate for the Communities

The areas of emigration, immigration and the Azorean communities abroad are within the competence of the Regional Department for the Communities, incorporated in the Presidency of the Government of the Azores, under the responsibility of the Regional Assistant Secretary of the Presidency for External Relations.

Within the framework of its responsibilities, this Regional Department promotes the dialogue between the communities of immigrants and emigrants and their representatives, and stimulates their civic and political participation in the societies in which they have settled. Its action is based on a double strand: the preservation of cultural identity and the integration of emigrants, immigrants and returnees.

This department is also responsible for assuring emigrants, immigrants, returnees and prospective migrants a public service on all the islands, and for fostering interculturality in the Autonomous Region of the Azores.

At this site, information is available about the Azorean Government’s action in the domains mentioned above, with the purpose of promoting a better knowledge and a suitable reflection on issues and subjects of interest concerning emigration from the Azores and immigration thereto.
