Dual Citizenship Process
Hello everyone,

I just wanted let everyone know who is seeking dual citizenship that it is a wonderful honor to be a passport carrying citizen for two amazing countries but I need to tell you that while the Consulate Staff in New Bedford was wonderful you need to have patience since it is a pretty complicated process. For the consulate to succeed it will be YOUR responsibility that you gather all the necessary documents you need. Don't expect to walk in and out with a passport in a couple of weeks. My advise to you is to start early, be patient and expect the unexpected and eventually you will have your heart filled with pride and honor to be part of special people and culture.

My mother and father married in Sao Miguel Portugal and I need an original for my mothers Green Card
Hi my mother and father married in Sao Miguel Portugal years ago and divorced here in America a few years back. When they divorced my father gave the original marriage certificate and my mother is trying to renew her green card but we cannot get her license of marriage in Portugal I have no idea where to go and how to go about it. How much will it cost? Also are there fees for the consolates office to send my mothers documents to Boston and how much are those fees? Can anyone please offer assistance to these questions and are there any assistances that can help cover these fees she does not have much income?

We came to the USA when I was 4yrs old on 1/14/68. My mom became US citizen in 1970. My dad did not want to be a US citizen at that time and since has become. Since my mom was a US citizen would that make me and my sister a US Citizen automatically? How can I obtain this

I have duel citizenship, I was born in Canada and moved to the U.S.A when I was a year old I am 45 today and I am a American Citizen, also a Canadian by Default. My question is my both parents were born and raised in the Azores, my mom lived in St. Micheal, Helva, and my father lived in Sainta Maria, Sao Pedro, he was also in the army in the war with Angola, he was a C.N.A., in duty, he helped the injured soldiers while being in combat. Both my Parents were Married in the island of Saint Michael, Azores does that make me a citizen of Portugal by my parents BirthPlace? Thank You, Fernando

Dual citizen info
Tania, I just received notice that my portuguese citizenship was approved by the Portuguese government. I submitted the paperwork at the New Bedford consulate. It took about 5 weeks.

You will need a certified birth certificate, your parent's birth certificates and a certified marriage certificate if you're married. You will also need to forms of photo ID (license and passport). If your parents were married in the United States, their marriage needs to be recorded in Portugal. You also need to pay the fee in cash. I showed up to the consulate at 8:30 when they opened and was on my way by 9am. Just show up with the paperwork and fee and they will take care of the rest. They were wonderful! Good luck!

Dupla Nacionalidade

I', trying to get my dual nationality. My parents are citizens of Portugal and are now US citizens as well. I've emailed mail@cnnbf.dgaccp.pt as well called (508) 993.5741. I haven't recieved an email back and am unable to leave a voicemail message. At this point I'm a bit desperate as I have tried to contact the consulate in Boston as well. I'm traveling to Portugal in the Summer and would really love to get this settled.

Thank you
