Medical Assistance

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

For medical emergencies and immediate medical assistance in Portugal please dial 112.

Please note: Portugal does not offer free medical treatment to visitors, and under European Union rules non-EU citizens are required to have travel medical insurance covering emergency medical, hospitalization, and repatriation (including the case of death).   Minimum coverage is 30.000 euros and the insurance must be valid for the entire Schengen area and the duration of the stay.  For more information please visit the EU Website on borders and migration.   

We can provide a list of qualified doctors, dentists and medical specialists. If you are injured or become seriously ill, we can, at your request, notify family or friends.
