To register a Birth

  • The birth of individuals, who are granted Portuguese nationality, must be registered in the Consulate of the corresponding area.
  • Birth registration is done by an inscription before a parents’ declaration (who must have a registry in the consular services), or by transcription based on a birth certificate issued by the local authorities of the country where the birth took place.
  • Birth registration may be done by anyone duly identified, legally representing the concerned persons.
  • If the individual is more than 14 years, the registration can only be done through the organization of the authorization process for late birth registration.
  • IMPORTANT: in case of birth registration by inscription, the presence of the parents or the legally capable declarant is obligatory.

Requested documents:

  • Identity card/Birth certificate of the legal declarants, issued, maximum, on the last 6 months.
  • Birth Certificate of the child, in case of registration by transcription.
  • NOTE: For birth registration declarations in the Consulate, it is advisable to schedule in advance. You can make it through a phone call.
  • The presence of the individual, who is going to be registered (baby), is not obligatory.
