Important Travel Document Information – Please Read

Portugal belongs to the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, and the Schengen Area. It joined the European Union in 1995, erasing its boundaries with the other member states.

Since then, it has been possible for travellers to apply for a Portuguese Schengen visa. They may also enter Portugal and the whole Schengen area with a Portugal Visa for short stays of up to 90 days.

What is a Portugal Visa?

A Shengen Visa is an official travel document. It allows a person to travel to any country in the Schengen Area. For stays of up to 90 days for tourism or business purposes.

The Schengen area consists of 26 European countries.  The area mostly acts as a single jurisdiction for international travel with a common visa policy.

Nationals of some countries, which have not yet reached a liberalization agreement will need to obtain this travel authorization before arrival in Europe.

Portugal National D-Visas

You must apply for a residency permit or national D-Visa, rather than a Portugal Schengen Visa if you plan to stay in Portugal for more than 90 days.

Your long-stay visa must be for a period of three months to one year, regardless of the length of your anticipated stay. You must apply for a residence permit at a prefecture in order to prolong your stay beyond the duration of your visa.

The long-stay visa is comparable to a Schengen visa throughout its validity term, allowing you to travel and remain in the Schengen Area outside of Portugal for up to 90 days in any 180-day period, under the same circumstances as if you had a Schengen visa.

If you are a citizen of a country that can visit the Schengen zone without a visa, then you may travel visa-free and apply for your national visa / residence permit from within the country you wish to stay in long-term.

A Portugal Schengen visa enables a foreign person to go to a Schengen port-of-entry (usually an airport) and request to be granted permission to enter the country. We can ensure your visa application goes smoothly, however, entrance to the Schengen zone is not guaranteed by an approved visa.

Schengen visas are utilised by business persons, tourists, speciality workers, and students who want to stay in Portugal for a limited time for specific travel purposes. Those who apply for a Schengen visa must show the Visa Applications Centre that they intend to leave the Schengen Zone at the end of their temporary stay. Portugal are a member of the EU.

Once you submit an application, it will go through our 8 point check to ensure there will be no issues with your authorization. Sometimes it can take up to 72 hours to schedule your consultation call with the attorney but you will be kept up to date from the moment your application is submitted.
