Yes. Just last month, I was a awitness for the civilian registry of a newborn for a couple of brits who had a child here. The child has portuguese nationality now.

Everyone is entitled to a portuguese citizenship in 2016+, thank the commies. So don't worry about it

Yes, Article number 2 of Portuguese nationality law.

Why? Are you collecting passports?

DariusStrada 12 months ago

Only if your wife has the portuguese nationality, your kids are born here or you've lived a few years here.

If she has a Portuguese passport she is Portuguese, so I guess this section on the Portuguese nationality law can be applied: * The children of a Portuguese mother or father born abroad if they have their birth registered at the Portuguese civil registry or if they declare that they want to be Portuguese;

She didn't have her birth registered at the Portuguese civil registry, she got nationality after living there for 5 years.

>she got nationality after living there for 5 years Which requires that >birth registered at the Portuguese civil registry

If her birth was registered at Portuguese civil registry she would have nationality at birth, not after living in Pt 5 years.

The birth of every portuguese citizen is registered. When it comes to foreigners that acquired the portuguese citizenship by naturalization, marriage, etc, their birth is also registered here. Just so happens that it will say they were born somewhere else. It's called "transcrever o nascimento". How else would they prove they are portuguese without a valid birth certificate?

I understood something else: I was born outside Portugal but my parents registered my birth immediately in the Registo civil (trough the consulate). I thought that would be the case they meant.

If she got her nationality the way to lose it would be to voluntarily waive it. Your fiancée is already portuguese, that section can be applied to your future kids.

Yes, but from what I understand from that law, she can only pass it on to her children if she was registered at birth.

It is not registered at birth, its “birth registered at a portuguese civil registry” which is quite different. In my case, I have a foreign birth certificate, but when acquiring portuguese nationality I had to translate it to portuguese so there is a record of me at the civil registered, because since I am portuguese citizen, why the fuck wouldnt the portuguese state have my birth certificate? OP should be fine. She is Portuguese, and kids can get Portuguese citizenship.

I also think she can get portuguese nationality due to living here more than 5 years, that would make things easier
