IDENTITY CARDS

If you have had a Portuguese ID card previously, you need to produce the original expired ID card, or sign a declaration stating that you have lost it. You need to appear in person at the Consulate in Auckland (by appointment) to sign the application form and have your fingerprints collected.

The fee is $25, plus $5 when you request return by courier to a destination in New Zealand. The fee is payable in cash, by credit card or by direct banking deposit to account number 02-0191-0322861-01.

Attendance in Auckland is by appointment. To make an appointment, please contact the Consulate by telephone (09) 255 2569 or email daniel@silva.co.nz

You need also to produce two colour photographs with a white background, where the entire head fits into a 32 mm square. Please note that this is smaller than the normal New Zealand passport photo. We suggest that you ask the person taking the photo to follow the specs for Indian passports, which are similar.

The Consulate in Auckland is not authorised to renew the "Cartão de Cidadão", only the "Bilhete de Identidade" (old format). Cartão services are available from the Consulate in Sydney and in Portugal. The Bilhete will be valid for one year only, to enable you to renew your passport.

If you are an adult applying for a Portuguese ID card for the first time, you need to present also a current valid passport or other photo ID.

Identity cards are issued in Lisbon and returned in fortnightly diplomatic bags. The total issue time is approximately three months, so we recommend that you ensure that your ID card is renewed at least six months before your passport expires.
