Upon becoming a Portuguese citizen, the law does not require you to obtain a Portuguese passport or an ID card, also known as Portuguese Citizen Card. However, there are some benefits to applying for a Portuguese passport together with the ID card for international travel and as ID as a Portuguese citizen.

If you have just finished obtaining your birth certificate because youโ€™re a recent citizen or didnโ€™t renew it because youโ€™re an expat you may experienc difficulties and have time constrainments and due to it the necessity to obtain it smoothly.

Portugal allows dual nationality, for instance and there are several options for immigrant residents to apply for a Portuguese passport without giving up their original passport. As Portugal is a European Union (EU) member nation, a Portuguese passport allows ย to travel around the world as both a Portuguese and an EU citizen.

Portuguese passports are issued by the Portuguese Ministry of Justice (Instituto dos Registos e do Notariado).

To be able to issue an IDย card and a passport you will need your portuguese birth certificate, your foreign passport and your current address with a postal code.

To issue both you need to visit a government office. First two books will be needed, one two apply for the Portuguese ID card / citizen card and the other to pick it up. After this is done two new bookings will be needed to apply for the passport and then to pick it up.

Usually this procedure takes between 3 and 5 days, if there are no strikes, holidays or bureaucratic issues with the name difference between the birth certificate and the passport, government printer shutdown or logistical issue.
