A foreign national who is the ascendant (parent) of an original Portuguese citizen, who has resided here, regardless of title, for at least five years immediately prior to the application and provided that the ancestry was established at the time of the Portuguese citizen’s birth.
You obtain derived nationality, but you can pass on Portuguese nationality to your spouse, unmarried partner and minor children.
We will analyse and compare birth certificates and proof of residence documents, taking the opportunity to detect any discrepancies in the documents that might hinder 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.
