Travel & visa

Lisbon is just a short flight away: 1-3 hours from most European cities and 5-8 hours from North America.

Lisbon Airport is only a 15 min transfer from the city centre and is served by all major airlines with daily non-stop connections to all major European cities as well as the US, South America and Africa (more than 50 destinations).

Find valuable information and useful tips in the Lisboa Congress Guide (pdf).


To enter Portugal, you may need a Passport and/or a Visa, depending on the country you live in. Citizens from the European Community don’t need a Visa for entering Portugal. Portugal is also a signatory to the 1995 Schengen Agreement.

Passports must be valid for up to six months (depending on your nationality) and are required by all, except by European Union nationals and nationals of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Malta, Norway and Switzerland holding valid national ID cards.

Although it is not obligatory to have a return ticket, it is advisable to have one because, if you don’t, you may have to prove sufficient means of financial support to return.
