L1.08. What does the "principle of reciprocity" mean?
Last Updated 11 months ago

It means that the law of the applicant's country of origin allows a Portuguese citizen to apply for equivalence of his diploma in accordance with the laws in force in that country.

The following are exempt from the presentation of proof of reciprocity:
  • Citizens from EU countries;
  • Citizens from Brazil and from Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP);
  • Citizens from countries that have ratified the Lisbon Convention;
  • Citizens from countries with which reciprocity has already occurred, namely Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Peru, Dominican Republic, Thailand, Turkey and Venezuela.
