Portuguese citizenship by birthright

Reading time: 3 min.

Portuguese citizenship is open to both Ukrainian citizens and citizens of other countries who were born in Portugal. Today, when the size of the Ukrainian diaspora in this country is so large, this opportunity is becoming particularly relevant. However, obtaining Portuguese citizenship will require detailed preparation of documents. Here you will need high-quality legal support. You can get it from the specialists of the team of Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm. We have experts in migration law not only at the level of Ukrainian legislation, but also at the level of the regulatory framework of other countries where many Ukrainians live.

What should you know about obtaining Portuguese citizenship?

The option of obtaining Portuguese citizenship by birthright is quite well regulated. The procedure takes a relatively short period of time, as the application can usually be considered within 1-2 months. At the same time, it is not necessary to simplify the understanding of complex legal processes. In order not to be rejected, the applicant needs to provide a rather large package of documents.

What documents are required to obtain Portuguese citizenship by birth?

When we talk about obtaining Portuguese citizenship by birth, the following documents are required

  • a birth certificate, which records the fact that the person was born in Portugal;
  • documents certifying that the parents legally resided in Portugal during the year before the applicant's birth (we are talking about parents' residence permits);
  • documents proving that the parents paid taxes during the period of residence in Portugal or during the period of 1 year before the applicant's birth;
  • Employment contracts of the parents that were concluded 1 year before the applicant's birth;
  • other documents that can confirm the legality of the applicant's parents' residence in Portugal 1 year before the applicant's birth.

It is important to understand that the more documents you submit, the better. This is a convincing evidence for the authorized state authorities of the country that you really have sufficient grounds to formalize political and legal relations with it in the form of citizenship. Therefore, if you are well prepared for the submission of documents, you will be able to obtain Portuguese citizenship in a fairly short time. And our specialists will help you with such preparation. We offer you to learn more about how we can be of service.
