Portuguese Citizenship

Civil Registry

After acquiring Portuguese citizenship, citizens who become Portuguese incur the obligation to register the acts and facts of their life in the Portuguese Civil Registry.

The most common compulsory acts and facts are marriage, divorce and death, each of which corresponds to a separate process at the Civil Registry Office.

It is also necessary to register changes to the Civil Registry (name, sex, etc.) and other less common acts and facts, such as prenuptial agreements or changes to the property scheme, adoption, regulation of parental authority, disqualification and interdiction, curatorship of absentees and presumed death.

All other relevant events that took place abroad must also be transcribed in Portugal and added to the birth certificate (transcription of civil marriage and Catholic marriage, transcription of death, etc.)

If they are court judgements relating to deeds subject to registration, they must first be reviewed and confirmed by a Portuguese court to be duly valid.
