Portugal is a Member-State of the European Union and has
signed the Schengen Agreement. While traveling within the
E.U., you only need your Identity card. However, a passport
is necessary for a number of other transactions, such as
currency exchange, purchases, etc.
Visas are not required by European citizens from countries
that are part of the Schengen Area. Portugal as a member of
the Schengen Agreement, has abolished controls on common
internal lands, at air and sea borders and allows
Member-State citizens to travel around without a visa for a
short stay period of up to three (3) months. However, keep
in mind that airlines and other carriers require a valid
passport and/or identity card.
Citizens coming from countries that have not yet joined
Schengen Area may require a visa to enter Portugal. The E.U.
visitors from these countries can acquire further
information from the Hellenic Embassies or Consulates in
their countries, or from their travel agencies. Before
visiting Portugal, please consult the detailed information
on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' website and find out
whether you require a Visa.
Note: During your stay in Portugal, if you require a Visa,
you are advised to have suitable insurance coverage for
emergency medical or other needs.
