For tourists

There is little doubt that Portugal is a “safe destination” for tourists and it is something that we residents here are proud of.

Much work goes into keeping the country safe through the collective work of the police and other law enforcement agencies, civil government, supplemented by non-government agencies and private security. Safe Communities, Portugal, and others.

As in any country there is some crime mainly committed through opportunists, but this can be reduced even further by being “street wise” and protecting your property as you would at home. Also with an active night life in some popular restaurants and bars, it is important to take care not to “over indulge” in drinking which can lesson your guard – situations which can be exploited by criminals.

The following pages have been translated from French to Portuguese. Please take the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the advice provided.

There are currently 84 overseas Embassies and 176 Consulates in Portugal. Should you need help on your trip to Portugal, the Embassy / Consulate can be found here .
