Selling Property in Portugal
I am an American citizen with a mother who is Portuguese. She is 87 and currently resides in the US. She has a house and properties in Portugal.
What steps do I need to take prior to her passing in order to facilitate the selling of her home? do I have to report her death to the Portuguese Consulate?
Do I have to go to Portugal within a certain time period to claim the inheritance? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Muito Obrigado

Portuguese Passport Request, first time, for a Portuguese-born female.
I am a female born in Portugal. I am a Swiss citizen and looking forward to obtain my first Portuguese passport. I reside in Brooklyn, New York.
What documents do I need, where must I present the required documents, how much is the fee to obtain my passport and how long may it take from the time I submit my completed application with all required documentation until the time I obtain my passport in hand?
Muito obrigado.

Portuguese Nationality MSG for Rosa
You need to get the birth certificate from Venezuela, translate it to Portuguese, Notarize documents and then get them legalized/Apostille at the Ministry of Home or External Affairs in this country. Once you are ready, I can guide you further. Portuguese Consulates or Embassy's are not authorised to accept documentation for nationality in the US.

I am suprised to read some of the comments above. I am an American Citizen and have been to the Consulate many times over the years with my Portugese born husband. I find that the employees are friendly, knowledge,and helpful. We have relocated to Portugal twice and they were very helpful. The office of the Consulate is clean and updated and even though it is still located in the same building, its a beautiful building. Muinto Obrigadao para Tudo!

Must I report death notice to the Portuguese consulate
My dad was born in Portugal but at the age of 17 went to Brasil and later came to the United States of America. While living and working here, he became a American Citizen and has lived in America for 50 years. He has no properties in Portugal or in Brasil. My question is, Upon the death of my Dad "is it vital to inform and bring the Death Certificate to the Portuguese Consulate?"

No Improvement since the 70's
Wow! its sad to hear that the consulate is still the same as it was years ago, I have been fortunate not to need their services but now I must go there and I am almost afraid of dealing with them after reading all the comments. I was born in Portugal, raised in the USA and can not believe how rude and unfriendly they are. Very disappointed to hear all the terrible comments.
