Visa request



To study or carry out research activities in Portugal, you need to request a visa to the nearest Portuguese Consulate/ Embassy of your city of residence. Inform yourself about the types of visa that apply to your case and how you should proceed to obtain it in the web portal of the Portuguese Communities Office.

ATTENTION: the tourist visa is not suitable for citizens who will follow studies or conduct research during a period of more than 90 days and it is not possible to obtain another visa or change the visa type once in Portugal. Those requests/ changes can only be made in the citizens’ home country according to the law in force.

To locate the nearest Portuguese Consulate/ Embassy of your city of residence, check the interactive map of the web portal of the Portuguese Communities Office.
