Dear Anu

As far as the Portuguese Government is concerned you are already a Portuguese Citizen... its
only a matter of your wish when they want to apply for the Cartao and/or Passport.

As far as the Indian Law is concerned I think this is still a grey area, as there is no clear rule under which the they can consider a person (whose only birth is registered in Portugal) a
foreign national. But I can confirm that for all administrative purposes, in the future
the Indian Government will consider the date of when one's birth was registered, and not
Cartao or Passport Issue date. (For e.g. when you want to surrender your Indian passport, they
will consider your registration date as a date you acquired foreign nationality. )

I am saying this is because I know of cases, who are government employees and have registered their births and marriage for the sake of their children.

Hope this information Helps.

Best Regards,
Remie Jose Antao

Fathers registration
Dear Victor

Best way to find out, is to get in-touch with a solicitor in Portugal and give them the details of your father and mother (date of birth, marriage and their parents name) and the solicitor should be able to tell your whether they are registered or not.

If you want my services you could get in touch with me and I can use my solicitor in Portugal to get your information.

You can email me.

Best Regards

Schengen visa
Dear Sandra

I know through experience that if the applicant has a Portuguese ID i.e. Cartao de Cidadao then the Schengen Visa is not a big issue, one can get it easily. But purely on Indian passport if it gonna be touch as there is a lot of documentation you will need to provide.

In your case as your first port is gonna be Portugal, you need to apply at the Portuguese consulate.

Please visit http://pt.vfsglobal.co.in/Tourist.html
as VFS in India are authorized

Here you will get all the details like fees and documents required.

Hope this information helps

Best Regards

Dear Almira

Thanks for your query.

Just by reading what you have written, without going into the details.... I can say that you can apply for your birth registration after you register your parents marriage in Lisbon. This is, assuming that your mothers birth is already registered in Lisbon, because you said she has a Bilhete/Cartao.

Hope this information helps you.

I was born in Mosambique in 1963. I traveled with my mother as being a minor, my photo was also on the portuguese passport. I also did posses a bilhete. But all the documents were surrounded when I was a minor. I am now 52 years old, married and have a daughter who is 32 years old. Recently, my mother was issued a bilhete, but unfortunately she expired. Her bilhete is valid upto 2017. Can I get my portuguese passport through my mothers bilhete.
