Press Releases

Kindly note that the Embassy telephone lines are currently out of order due to the ICT network being down. The Embassy is working closely with the head office (Department of International Relations and Cooperation) in Pretoria to have the broken-down switch (connector between a router and telephone lines) replaced as soon as possible. It is unfortunate and regrettable that the switch is not readily available and can only be sourced and couriered from South Africa to Portugal. The COVID-19 pandemic is causing delays in delivery of the switch from the supplier and also for the movement of goods and services. The Embassy apologises for the inconvenience caused.

In the meantime, the Embassy can be contacted as follows: for emergencies please call 964151989 or 969501605; for consular queries please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Consular hours: 09:00-12:00 Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays, while also by appointment only.
