Login at the SNS portal will be done exclusively with Digital Mobile Key or Citizen Card

If you have not yet activated your Digital Mobile Key, you should know that this is the right moment to do so. From 20 May, the login at the National Health Service Portal will be exclusively carried out through the Digital Mobile Key or the Citizen Card’s authentication PIN.

By activating the Digital Mobile Key, the access to the SNS’s reserved area may now be carried out through the phone number or a numeric PIN with four digits. This procedure waives the need of a card reader and also allows one to sign, in a qualified manner, a PDF document. 

The National Health Service Portal presents several features, allowing the citizen to, for instance, submit the request for the basic fee’s exemption, schedule appointments, renew chronical medication, monitor their health, access the vaccination record and consult the treatment guides electronically.

The Ministry of Health’s Shared Services are responsible for several applications, such as MySNS Carteira, MySNS Tempos and Mobile Electronic Medical Prescriptions. All these allow the login with Digital Mobile Key.
