Adoption of a Portuguese citizen that is decreed abroad must be transcribed to Portugal to be registered in the birth certificate.
The foreign adoption decision has to be reviewed and confirmed to be valid in Portugal.
The procedure for reviewing a foreign judgement is judicial, requires the assistance of a lawyer and can only be brought in Portugal.
Foreign nationals adopted abroad who wish to acquire citizenship must also review and confirm the adoption judgement in order to present it in the procedure for acquiring citizenship by adoption.
We will analyse and compare birth certificates and proof of residence documents, taking the opportunity to detect any inconsistencies in the documents that may impede the process.
* 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.
