How To Apply

Before applying, please ensure you are very clear on your ‘purpose of visit’ – do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa and how long exactly it will take to process it, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Embassy of Portugal in Abuja.

Applicants are requested to read the below mentioned steps carefully before submitting their application at the Portugal visa application center , Lagos or Abuja.

Applicants are to provide the new bio-metric passports.

The Embassy of Portugal would require a minimum of three (3) consecutive empty pages in your passport in order to issue a visa STICKER on your passport.
