Land of Adoption

We are Azoreans, yes, but we are also, related to the land of adoption. And this gives us a sensitivity, neither better nor worse, but different, that we want to share with our Homeland.


For the Emigrant, for our Emigration: MAKE A PARTNER AND HELP US HELP!     We do not have quotas obligation, donations are accepted … Check our page and register online. We want to be a bridge, a facilitator, between the Diaspora and the motherland.


This Association is an independent body made up of citizens of this land, engaged voluntarily to serve it.


AEA – The Association of Azorean Emigrants, pretends to be a bridge, a facilitator between the Diaspora and the homeland. Thus it will be a sort of House of the Azores in the Azores and with the Azores Houses in the Diaspora, to establish a privileged relationship and collaboration.

Promote pluralism

For the achievement of its objectives the Association aims to be a facilitator with the responsible institutions, promoting pluralism within the association as well as tolerance and respect for differences, among others.

Element of meeting

We want to be an element of meeting between all the Azorean returnees, in fellowship, and in finding solutions to bureaucratic issues.
