POWER OF ATTORNEY
To deal with some legal matters in Portugal, such as real estate transactions, it is sometimes necessary to give someone (usually a lawyer) a power of attorney. That document, known in Portuguese as a "procuração", can be drawn up by the Honorary Consul in Auckland and must be signed in his presence.
The fee is $90, payable in cash, by a cheque made out to "Portuguese Consulate" or by direct banking deposit to account number 02-0191-0322861-01. There are no EFTPOS or credit card facilities.
Attendance in Auckland is by appointment. To make an
appointment, please contact the Consulate by telephone (09) 255
2569 or email
The document must be drafted by the lawyer involved. The Honorary Consul cannot provide legal advice or create the legal document, only witness it.
The draft should be specific to the stated aims and the powers granted must not exceed those reasonably necessary to achieve those aims. For example, the document should empower A to represent B in the sale of property X, but should not be a general power for A to act for B on all matters.
The draft should be emailed to the Honorary Consul in computer-readable format, for example Microsoft Word or text. Documents in other formats, for example
images or PDF, may require the Consulate to use a translation/typing service, subject to additional costs.
