All thefts and major losses should be reported to the nearest police station immediately and in person. The police will not accept a report by telephone or from someone else on person's behalf.

The U.S. Embassy accepts applications to replace passports that have been lost, stolen, or damaged. Replacement passports can be normally issued within two weeks. In cases where the applicant must travel urgently, the Consulate can issue an 'emergency passport' with limited validity. This passport is valid for all travel. This 'emergency passport' can be exchanged later for a full validity passport at an embassy or consulate overseas or at a Passport Agency in the United States.

Citizens of Portugal may qualify to travel under the Visa Waiver Program if:

  • they plan to stay in the United States for 90 days or less;
  • they are traveling temporarily for tourism, business, or medical treatment;
  • they have obtained an ESTA authorization prior to departing for the United States;
  • they hold a return or onward ticket;
  • they make side trips to Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and/or the Caribbean Islands (trips must be within the 90-day period);
  • their passport complies with all Visa Waiver Program requirements (all regular Portuguese passports issued since 2001 comply with these requirements);
  • if arriving by air or sea, they are traveling on an approved carrier;
  • they cannot extend the duration of their stay;
  • they cannot accept paid or unpaid employment;
  • they cannot change their visa status.

If citizens of Portugal meet all the requirements for the Visa Waiver Program, they do not need to apply for a visa.

Non-Immigrant Visas are required for anyone traveling to the United States temporarily who does not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program. Nonimmigrant visas cover visits for tourism, business, work or study.

On average, visa processing takes one week.

Payment in person may be made in dollars or Euros, with cash or credit card or by mail via Portuguese postal money order (Vale Postal dos CTT). Multibanco and debit cards are not accepted.

For security reasons do not bring luggage such as large backpacks, laptop computers or large cameras. Security guards will hold small tourist cameras and cellular phones until their departure. There is no storage available for other items – please do not bring them to the Embassy.

The Embassy is closed on American and Portuguese holidays.
