Conservation of Portuguese nationality

Born before independence, in Angola, they can regain nationality.


people born before November 11, 1975, in Angola, were once Portuguese nationals, but after the country's independence these people lost Portuguese nationality.

However, under the DL nº 308-A/75, of June 24th, it is possible to retain (recover) Portuguese nationality if they are children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Portuguese.

If from the analysis of the documents it is found that it is in a position to retain Portuguese nationality, the certificate will be transcribed in accordance with the DL nº 249/77, of June 14th, resulting in the original Portuguese nationality, which can be transmitted to children born after independence, as well as allowing spouses to acquire nationality through marriage.
