Welcome to the Embassy of Portugal to the United States of America


This is our renovated web page, based on the pattern applied to all diplomatic and consular missions of Portugal. We hope that it will be a dynamic and attractive source of information about Portugal as well as a useful instrument for all those who share an interest for a country that is simultaneously an ancient nation with 900 years of history and a vibrant, innovative modern society. In addition to this page, we suggest following us on Facebook, at @PortugalintheUS.
