casaConsulate at Home (Post Mail)


Required documents:

After the power of attorney has been drafted by a notary not registered with the Consulate:

  • Authenticate the power of attorney with the County Clerk (in order for us to know the notary is legitimate) and then post mail to the Consulate:
    • Original power of attorney;
    • Cover letter explaining the service you require and your contacts (email and cellphone number);
    • Self-addressed postmarked envelope;
    • Check payable to "Portuguese Consulate".


  • Authenticate the power of attorney with the State's Secretary of State.
    • In this case, an apostille is appended to the power of attorney that makes it valid in Portugal, and no intervention is required from the Consulate.



  • IMPORTANT: The Consulate does not verify or correct the document and refuses any responsibility regarding the contents of the power of attorney.
