Portuguese nationality law

Portuguese nationality can be requested at birth or during life. Portuguese citizenship entitles people to settle and carry out their activities in Portugal, the European Union and/or the Schengen Area.

Applying for Portuguese nationality

The procedure for obtaining Portuguese nationality starts once the registry office has received the application. The application is registered with the Institute of Registration and Notary Affairs (IRN), which checks and validates the documents. If all the legal requirements are met, Portuguese nationality is granted and the new citizen is registered in Portugal’s Civil Registry.
