Visa requirements

General information

Visitors from outside the European Union (EU) should check whether or not a visa is required. In most cases a valid passport will be sufficient. Moreover, visitors from central and eastern Europe should check whether or not special health insurance is required for receiving a visa. All insurance and visa costs must be borne by the participant.

Schengen Agreement

Portugal is a member of the Schengen Agreement. The Schengen visa represents the collective of European countries that have mutually decided to eliminate passport and immigration controls at their joint borders.
Participants from outside these countries and the European Union (EU) but with a valid visa for one of the Schengen countries may move freely into and within any other Schengen country.
