How can you Request the Portuguese electronic passport?

Go to a service desk

The passport must be requested by the individual.

You must remember to bring:

  • your Citizen Card
  • your previous passport (if you had one).

When the passport is ready, you may collect it at the service desk where you requested it or receive it by mail, if you indicate an address and pay for the shipping.

Is the passport for a minor, prohibited or disabled individual?

To request the passport:

  • must be present:
    • the individual to whom the passport is requested
    • the legal guardian of the individual to whom the passport is requested
  • is necessary to bring:
    • the Citizen Card of the individual to whom the passport is requested
    • the Citizen Card (or passport, visa or residence permit, in the case of foreign citizens) of the individual who holds the parent responsibilities (or guardianship/custody) over this person.

If you are going to request this passport at a SEF’s office [Borders and Immigration Service], you must also bring a document, issued less then 6 months ago, which proves who holds the parental responsibilities (or guardianship/custody).
