Can an orphan apply for portuguese passport?
Dear Remie,
Thanks for your quick response. Would like to inform you that she was not adopted.However she lived in an orphanage till she got married. She was in 1957, registered too the same year. When I got her birth certificate it's just one parent (mothers name mentioned). Please let me know if I can still go ahead in this case.

Duplicate copy of assent and nasciment
Dear Wilson

Yes of course if you can show link (proof) to the person whose assento de nascimento you require...

In Goa yo can get it, they will charge you around 1500 INR.

Dear Sharon

Yes of-course if the Orphan is adopted by Portuguese Parents ... but this adoption should not be of convenience..

BI & Passport collect from Portugal
Dear Bet

Looks like you intend going to Portugal to collect your BI and Passport from Portugal.

I could not follow exactly what you described... but anyway in Portugal they are not fussy, and also I am sure you must have presented the same passports (a copy) as part of the documentation process to register your births...

So I do not think they will have issue... but make sure you know some solicitor there in case they have you have do an affidavit in Portuguese if required...

How to obtain Portuguese Birth Certificate (Certidão Narrativa)
Dear Mel

The only docs she is missing are her
1) Registto de Nascimento
Can be obtained from the respective sub registrar in Goa
2) and a Residential certificate
3) A copy of a Indian passport, Hope she has one.

to Register her marriage
1) your fathers birth or baptism
2) your fathers passport copy

Times frames depends on where and how you apply...
Whether you apply it yourself at the Portuguese consulate in Goa or use a agent/solicitor for apply for you.

I would take 4 months to register your mothers birth ad 1 and half month to register her marriage..
Mind you these times are from the day the documents reach my solicitor in Portugal.

To discus the cost and the other advantage if done through us please email me at remie.antao@gmail.com if interested.

We are agents based in Goa (Vasco, Candolim) ad UK (London).

We can do all the ground work for you and do not have to make any trips to Goa at all...

Duplicate copy of assent and nasciment
I paid my sister in law to do my mother in laws assento and nascimento but now she's asking me for more money. I asked a lawyer and he said I can get a copy from the consulate. Does anyone know what's the procedure? What documents are needed and the cost?
Thanks in Advance

BI & Passport collect from Portugal
Dear mr shane / mr remie.
(Same post i posted earlier but hoping for a reply atleast from either one of you.)
My Birth is registered in portugal and my husband birth is also registered in portugal. Problem is my husband surname was corrected . But his indian passport has old surname. My passport has does not have my maiden surname. And mothers middle name is spelt wrong. Also on my passport the parents name. ( my mothers surname is not her maiden surname.)

Do we need to show our indian passport in portugal or is our registration copy enough. ?

Kindly reply.
