Embassy of Portugal in Peru

Ministry of Foreign Affairs

General information

The Consular Section of the Portuguese Embassy in Lima provides services and emergency assistance for Portuguese citizens visiting or residing in Peru and Bolivia, namely:

- Renewal, replacement or application for a first Cartão de Cidadão – Portuguese identity card;

- Renewal, replacement or application for a first passport;

- Issue emergency travel documents (temporary passport and single travel document);

- Notarial and documentary services

- Residence certificate, baggage (duty free importation) certificate, proof of life certificate;

- Registration of children born abroad to Portuguese parents (one or both);

- Registration of marriages and deaths;

- Information on travelling;

- Electoral registration and elections;

- Information about military registration. 

THE CONSULAR SECTION OF THE PORTUGUESE EMBASSY DOES NOT DO

- Legalization of documents. Since Portugal, Peru and Bolivia signed the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents, documents legalized by Apostille do not require consular legalization (for more information on how to apostille in each country click on it: PortugalPeru and Bolivia.)

- Update your personal residence on the chip of your identity card for fiscal effects or send requests to the Portuguese Social Security (those matters must be dealt directly with each of those authorities in Portugal.)

- Divorces. Consulates are not allowed to process divorce registrations (article 52nd of consular regulation code). All divorce proceedings taking place in a foreign country involving Portuguese nationals, must be reviewed and confirmed by a Portuguese Court, therefore it is advisable that you contact a lawyer in Portugal to process your divorce so that it can be integrated in your birth certificate and, in that way, your marital status is updated in Portugal.

- Renewal of driving licences.

- We do not issue criminal records (we can only request it to the Portuguese competent authorities. It is however easier for the citizen to request it directly to the competent services in Portugal through a representative or by postal mail).

- Translations (please refer to this web site to check the list of official translators in Peru).

- Issues related to immigration, visas, residence permits and/or fines for illegal stays in Peru or Bolivia are not within the competence of any consulate. Those matters are under the sole and exclusive responsibility of the national authorities of each country.

From April 2016, Peruvian citizens do not visa to enter the Schengen area for periods of up to 90 days per semester. Therefore, we cannot accept Schengen visa applications from Peruvian nationals. We can only accept residence or temporary stay visa applications (work, study, family reunion) from Peruvian and Bolivian citizens or from any other foreign nationals residing in those countries. For more information on travelling to Europe please click here and here

It is always advisable that Portuguese nationals in Peru let us know their emergency contacts (click here). Portuguese nationals visiting Bolivia can contact our Honorary Consulates in that country to let them know the contacts in case of an emergency. 

In case you are residing in any of the above mentioned countries, you should register at the nearest Portuguese consulate (click here) free of charge.

 What the Consular Section can do in case you need emergency assistance:

  • Issue a provisional emergency travel document in case your passport or any other travel document has been lost or stolen and after your nationality is confirmed and you present a copy of the declaration before the local police;
  • Facilitate the contact with your family, friends or any other person who may help you financially or send you a valid travel ticket;
  • Under exceptional circumstances and after all other options for urgent assistance have been considered and exhausted, we may request your repatriation to Portugal, by sending to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Lisbon your signed repayment commitment to meet the expenses of your repatriation due to the Portuguese State;
  • Provide you and your family or friends with a list of local lawyers, translators or physicians, according to your specific needs;
  • Inform your family of an accident (or other circumstances you want them to know) and advice them on how to proceed;
  • In case you are arrested, you may require us to visit you and, only at your request, we can also inform your family of your situation.
  • Provide the necessary and possible assistance to natural (individual) or legal (collective) persons abroad under the national and international laws and regulations.

What we cannot do for you:

  • Release you from prison or interfere in criminal or civil court proceedings. In case you need a lawyer, we can always provide a list of local service providers at your request;
  • Investigate a crime;
  • Pay a lawyer or a physician for you;
  • Pay your accommodation, medical, legal or any other expenses;
  • Pay, not even partially, for funerals and or repatriation of deceased persons;
  • Pay for travel tickets, except in very exceptional circumstances;
  • Act as a travel agency, airline company, insurance company or bank;
  • Get accommodation, work or residence permit for you in Peru or Bolivia

RECOMMENDATIONS

- In case you are mugged, assaulted or otherwise left without any money or belongings, you must first declare the incident to the local police and request a proof of your declaration;

- In case of decease of one or more Portuguese nationals, anyone around should immediately contact the nearest consulate;

- In case you are arrested, detained or charged with a crime, you can insist that the local authorities inform the Portuguese Embassy or Consulate. We will contact you as soon as possible in order to request the same treatment provided to local prisoners, will inform you of the legal procedure to follow and provide the contacts of local lawyers.
