Where the markets are in faro if you go upstairs the complete first floor of the market has various sections where you can complete most paperwork actions you require, there's a SEFF section & various other areas, we were told to go there if the queues at the IMT where really long which they were, we asked upstairs in the markets which section to go to to register our licences & got told not here had to be at the IMT.
Glad to here that your experience was a lot nicer than ours.
When we did our residency that was a walk in the park even though we got told that we would prob run into problems.

Now I understand. What you describe is known as the Loja for short. In full, it is the 'Loja da Cidadão' or citizen's shop. It is a brilliant, time-saving idea bringing government and local departments and utilities together under one roof. There is one in most major towns and cities.
