Recently, several companies surged in the Portuguesemarket aggressively offering legal solutions entitled "Get a Portuguese Passport" based on alleged residency facilities and entitling themselves as “experts” in regard to theacquisition of Portuguese nationality.
Although some of the proposals present an appealing advertising claim, including the seal of prestigious Portuguese entities, those ads are not less than plain and simple fraud.
Those companies are offering solutions prohibited by Portuguese law.Besides, the so called Portuguese nationality “legal solutions” are presented by entities and persons who cannot provide any kind of legal services whatsoever in Portugal.
According to Portuguese law, only lawyers registered in the Portuguese Bar Association (Ordem dos Advogados) may provide legal services, both with regard to legal information and forensic  representation before any public or private institution.
