Citizens who were born in Macao until the end of 1999, since Macao was a Portuguese territory until 25 April 1976 and then a territory under Portuguese administration until 20 December 1999, when it was integrated into China.
Citizenship is original in both cases and can also be passed on to your family without limitation, i.e. your spouse, children and grandchildren.
Although China does not allow dual citizenship, which is why many individuals born in Macao and their descendants have chosen not to pursue it, many have Portuguese citizenship or the right to it and can pass it on to their descendants.
Many citizens who were born in the region, for example in Hong Kong, and were registered at the Portuguese Consulate, are also Portuguese and in many cases also need to transcribe their birth records.
We will analyse and compare the documents to determine the most suitable process and compliance with the requirements, taking the opportunity to detect any inconsistencies in the documents that may be hindering the process.
