To ensure proximity of service to visa applicants, Portugal has delegated in certified service providers the possibility to lodge Schengen visa applications, in different cities. This allows for a more rapid response and for better territorial coverage, resulting in more applicants being served.

Portugal has signed contracts in 20 different countries, which translates into a territorial coverage of 76 cities.
