Confirm that you are eligible for passport renewal. Portuguese citizens can renew their passport within one year before its expiration date.

Step 7: Submit Application #

Submit your completed application form, along with all required documents, at the consulate during your appointment.

Step 8: Receive Payment Confirmation #

After paying the fees, you should receive a payment confirmation. Keep this confirmation safe, as you may need it to collect your new passport.

Step 9: Track Application Status #

Some consulates provide online tracking services. Use this service to monitor the status of your passport renewal.

Step 10: Collect New Passport #

Once your new passport is ready, return to the consulate to collect it. Bring the payment confirmation and your old passport for cancellation.
