Miguel moved into the Primeira Liga in the following season, with Associação Naval 1º de Maio. His competition debut took place on 26 August 2005 as he played 36 minutes in a 2–3 home loss against FC Porto, and the vast majority of his appearances would be also from the bench.
Rui Miguel started 2006–07 again in division three, with S.L. Nelas. However, in January 2007, he moved to Poland and signed with Zagłębie Lubin; after one-and-a-half years he returned to his country, where he finally would make a name for himself in the top flight, first with F.C. Paços de Ferreira.
Miguel signed with Vitória S.C. for the 2009–10 campaign. Never an undisputed started except for the league's final games (four of his five goals came during that stretch), he contributed solidly as the Guimarães-based team finished sixth and nearly qualified for the UEFA Europa League, for example scoring a last-minute equalizer against eventually fourth-placed Sporting Clube de Portugal (1–1, at home).
