PASSPORT / NATIONAL IDENTITY CARD AND VISA INFORMATION

European Union citizens, entering Portugal, must always have a valid passport or National Identity Card. Visitors from other countries are advised to check what form of ID is required with the individual airline, tour operator or travel agent before travelling. For detailed information about visa, please contact the Portuguese Embassy or Consulate in your home country. Please note that visa applications take quite some time and that your passport should be valid well beyond September 2019 (±6 months).
