For Prospective Applicants
Applicants who wish to apply for a Visa are requested to kindly read the information on this Website carefully. The guidelines listed on this Website are to help you prepare your documents as accurately as possible. This will reduce the chances of your application being incomplete or a delay in being processed.
The processing time for an application at the Embassy of Portugal is a minimum of 30 calendar days. Please note that all those applying for a visa for Portugal need to have at least 30 days between the date of application and date of travel. Applications will not be accepted if this requirement is not adhered to.
The Embassy of Portugal will not process applications if the applicant is already holding a valid Schengen visa at the time of submission of the application. The new Visa application can be submitted only after the Schengen visa is no longer valid. This would be applicable even if the applicant is travelling directly after the expiry of his/her visa.
Please note that you may be required to appear before a Visa Officer for a personal interview at The Embassy of Portugal in Iran, prior to a decision being taken on your application if necessary.
