Fewer foreign residents acquiring Portuguese citizenship

The number of foreign residents in Portugal seeking Portuguese citizenship has dropped.

In comparison to 2016, last year, 2017, 28.2 percent fewer people applied for Portuguese nationality. Naturalization, followed by “marriage or de facto union with Portuguese citizens for more than three years", and having a child with a Portuguese partner remained the main routes for foreigners who did acquire Portuguese nationality.
