Trying to obtain a Portuguese passport through a native relative.
Asked May 15, 2010, 10:48 AM
I am trying to obtain a Portuguese passport through a relative. My grandmother was born in Madeira Island and I was hoping I could get one through her. If not through her, then maybe through my father. He does not have a Portuguese passport at the moment, but I figure he could get one much easier than I could and once he has one, I could get one. I have been reading that these cost thousands of dollars and in that case I would not be able to get one, but I am hoping they are much cheaper! I called the Portuguese Embassy in MA, but apparently it's a Portuguese holiday and they are closed, go figure! Anyway, thanks a bunch and hope to get some good info from you all : )
