How to Get Portuguese Citizenship | Movingto

While becoming a citizen of Portugal isn’t a requirement for living and working in the country, it is still an option. One of the best things about Portugal in terms of its residency options is that it also allows for dual citizenship, which means that becoming a Portuguese citizen doesn’t mean you have to give up your national identity or cut ties with your home country.

This is where Portugal beats Germany and Spain. It allows you to have dual citizenship. Honestly, there are so many reasons to go with Portugal over so many other European countries now. The only problem is the salaries aren’t great…

Hi Hart,

Spain allows you to have dual nationaly, however, you need to communicate the Spanish Autorities when you get your second citizenship that you will wish to keep both. If you don’t do it within 3 years of adquaring the new citizenship, they will cancel your Spanish citizenship.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to reply to this message.

Do you know if it’s any faster to get Portuguese citizenship if you have a Family Reunion Visa?

A family reunification or reunion visa is valid for two years for all successful applicants. In most cases, individuals will be eligible for another means of residency or citizenship before the two years is up
