What are the documents and requirements to Declare a death?

    • You will need the death certificate. You do not have to bring it as the certificate is issued and electronically sent to the Registries and Notary Institute.
    • Although it is not mandatory, the individual who requests the certificate must bring an identification document of the deceased individual, such as the citizen card or the identity document, so that the data is as complete as possible.
  • If the death occurred abroad

    You need to bring:

    • the death certificate issued by the authorities of the country where the individual passed away
    • the translation of that death certificate.

    If the individual has passed away abroad, the death may be declared at a civil registry office or at the Portuguese consulate.
