Expired or lost passports – Portugal
To enter or leave Portuguese territory, foreign citizens must hold an accepted and valid travel document. For entering Portugal, the travel document must be valid for longer than the duration of the stay, unless the holder is a foreign resident in Portugal.
They must be in possession of a valid travel document that entitles the holder to cross the border and meets the following criteria:
- it must continue to be valid for at least three months after the intended date of departure from the territory of the Member States. In a duly justified emergency, this obligation may be waived;
- it must have been issued within the previous 10 years.
Foreign nationals may also enter or leave the country if:
they are covered by the relevant agreements between the Parties to the North Atlantic Treaty;
they hold a laissez-passer issued by the authorities of the State of which they are nationals or by the State representing them;
they hold a pilot's licence or crew member certificate as referred to in Annexes 1 and 9 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, or other documents that replace these when on service.
they hold a seafarer's identity document as per International Labour Organization (ILO) Convention No 108 when on service;
they are nationals of States with which Portugal has international agreements that allow them to enter with just their seaman's identity book when on service.
