Portuguese Citizenship

Stateless Person born in Portugal

For whom it is intended:

Individuals born in Portuguese territory and who do not hold any other citizenship are entitled to Portuguese citizenship.

It obtains the original nationality and can also transmit the Portuguese nationality to its family without limitations, i.e. to its spouse, children and grandchildren.

* Note: Those who were born in Portugal and do not meet these requirements may have different routes to Portuguese citizenship by attribution or naturalisation. Contact us to find out more.

Requirements:

  • Born in Portugal
  • Proof that the applicant has no other nationality (the Civil Registry Office still requires proof that it is not entitled to obtain the nationality of its parents, although this is not expressly stated in the law).
  • Compile, among others, the following documents:
    • Identification document
    • Birth certificate
    • Portuguese birth certificate
    • Proof that the applicant does not have other citizenship

We will analyse and compare birth certificates and other documents proving the absence of citizenship, taking the opportunity to detect any inconsistencies in the documents that may be hindering the process.

Process:

  1. Framing the right and determining the best strategy for the client and their family.
  2. Guidance on the issue and legalisation of foreign documents by the client.
  3. Submission of the file to the competent registry/court/sector in Portugal and regular monitoring of progress.
  4. Sending the final document to the client – be it the judgement, the civil registration certificate (birth, marriage, death), etc.

* In the citizenship process the client receives a certificate of the Portuguese birth certificate and has the obligation to request the issuance of the ->Citizen Card-> and in possession of the latter, if desired, it can also request the issuance of the ->Portuguese Passport->. Both documents can be issued at the Portuguese Embassy and/or Consulate or directly in Portugal. Ask us how.
