Vocês não precisam se preocupar ,o meu pedido dos documentos também foi feito somente por e-mail. Como no início achei estranho, resolvi mandar um e-mail perguntando se deveria esperar uma carta e quando o prazo de 4 meses começava a contar, a Maria João disse que meu processo começava mesmo da data enviada por e-mail. Devo enviar meu documentos até final de abril.

Uma ótima sorte a todos nós!!
