Applicants for a passport must appear in person at this Consular Section of the Embassy of Portugal in Washington, DC.

Portuguese passports are issued to Portuguese citizens holding a valid Portuguese Identification or Citizen Card, who are registered at a Portuguese Consulate. If applicant is not registered he/she can be registered when applying for a new passport. Applicants who do not hold valid ID or Citizen cards (or hold ID cards issued in Macao) must appear at the Consulate to sign and fingerprint ID card requisition forms. In such cases the passport can be requested only after the ID card is received from Portugal.

Passports may be renewed 6 months within date of expiration. The old passport cannot be returned to holder, unless it contains a valid visa, in which case holder will return it once visa expires. Passports are issued in Portugal and may take about 2 to 3 weeks for holders of ID or Citizenship cards, or 6 weeks to 2 months for those who must first request an ID card. Passport validity depends on age of holder: 2 years from ages 1 to 2; 3 years from ages 2 to 5; 5 years from ages 5 onward.

The Consular Section of the Embassy of Portugal is not currently issuing the Citizen Card (Cartão do Cidadão). The Consular Section is still issuing the Portuguese Identification Card (Bilhete de Identidade).

ID cards are the major identification document of Portuguese citizens, with the bearer’s photo, signature and fingerprints.  Portuguese citizens applying for identification cards must appear in person at the Consulate where they are (or intend to be) registered in order to sign and fingerprint the forms.

NOTE: Only the names and marital status in a current birth certificate are considered for inclusion in the new ID.  If marital status has changed due to marriage, divorce or widowhood, which occurred in a foreign country, these changes must be registered in Portugal before they may be included on new documents.

US citizens traveling to Portugal for tourism or business do not need a visa. American citizens wishing to study, work or apply for residence in Portugal, must abide by visa regulations and requirements. Legal residents in the United States may or may not need a visa depending on their country of citizenship. Find bellow a list of countries whose citizens do not need a visa for short stay visits.

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) exempts nationals from 27 countries, including Portugal, from the visa requirement when traveling to the United States for tourism or business, for stays of 90 days or less. The same applies to US citizens when traveling to Portugal and other European Union countries. It is also important to bear in mind the fact that when entering the US through the Visa Waiver Program, a visitor will not be able to change his/her status in US territory. Namely, it will not be possible to apply for student or work visa permit when in the USA. Change of visa status has to be requested in the country of residency. Also, if a person fails to comply with VWP requirements (for instance by overstaying in the US after the 90 days allowed), he/she will not be eligible to be part in the program in the future.

NOTE: All fees payable in Cash, Certified Check or Money Order. Personal Checks Are not Accepted. Please add to the Certified Check or Money Order: $5.00 for certified mail or $16.00 for Fed-ex .Please note that price is subject to change due to variations in the exchange rate euro/dollar.
