Portuguese Consulate in Manchester


After some months here, I finally got the time and patience to register officially with the Portuguese Consulate General in Manchester.

The process is simple and if you have any enquiries be sure to contact them by e-mail because it's much faster.

You just have to gather some documents and send them by regular mail, and as soon as they get it, you're registered. Be sure to contact them afterwards by e-mail in order to know which registry number you were given, otherwise they'll probably forget to do so.

If you have to use the Consulate services (for instance: if you need to get some sort of document legally recognized) it is mandatory that you register in person because you'll definitely need to sign any document in their presence. However, bear in mind to always make an appointment beforehand by fax or email.

The documents required by the Consulate in Manchester are as follows:

DOCUMENTS NEEDED
  • Consulate Registration Form*
  • 1 Photocopy of the National Identity Card
  • 1 Passport-sized coloured photograph (32 x 32 mm)
  • 1 Photocopy of a document attesting the home address (e.g: utility bills statement, bank statement)**

* this form is sent to you by e-mail upon request by the Consulate and is in *pdf format (which is editable); do not register online, because the system is not working properly
** also take the original document, if you decide to register in person

For further information, the contacts of the Portuguese Consulate in Manchester are as follows:
Portuguese Consulate General in Manchester

Telephone: 0161 236 0990

Once you have received confirmation by e-mail that your registration is effective, the Consulate will give you a Registration Number. With it, you can register online to use the Online Consulate services. Input your personal details, and the Consulate Registration Number, submit and you're done. Then, you'll just have to wait for a password to be sent home.

Ao ler um dos teus posts,fiquei curiosa e experimentei a manteiga Kerrygold e,gostei bastante!
Normalmente compramos a Lurpak.

Eu já tinha usado a Country Life e até gosto. Normalmente, procuro manteigas que não tenham sal ou muito pouco, e esta Kerrygold até ver é a minha preferida pelo facto de ser tão cremosa e saborosa. Mesmo deixando-a no frigorífico (o que faço no Verão) não fica rija.

Hei-de dar uma espreitadela para procurar os palmiers. :) À falta de pasteis de nata e bolas de berlim...

Bem-vinda ao meu cantinho, Ana. E coragem de leoa em tudo o que se avizinha. Um bom Natal para ti e para a tua pequenina que é linda de morrer!

Se calhar eu também me devia inscrever nisso, né?...

Quanto às manteigas também gosto da Clover.

Pode dar jeito, Restelo. E em situações de crise ou emergência, permite aos Consulados e Embaixadas ajudarem mais eficazmente os emigrantes.
Para além disso, caso queiras resolver algum assunto de carácter oficial, escusas de ir Portugal e resolves através do Consulado ou Embaixada.
