Death of a U.S. Citizen

When an American dies abroad, a consular officer notifies the next-of-kin and offers information to the family regarding the options and costs involved in making funeral arrangements. If the deceased has no legal representative or trustee in Portugal, a consular officer will act as ‘provisional conservator’ of the deceased’s effects. A consular officer will also prepare a Consular Report of Death Abroad based on the local death certificate for use by the next-of-kin.

If you have information regarding the death of an American citizen in Portugal please notify us by calling the American Citizen Services Unit at (351) 217 702 122 during our public phone hours—2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If the matter is urgent, after work hours please call (351) 217 273 300, dial “0” and ask to speak with the duty officer.

More information is available on the State Department’s website.
