In Portugal, a NIF (Número de Identificação Fiscal) is a tax identification number that is required for various financial transactions, including obtaining a mortgage. If you are a resident of Portugal, you will need to provide your NIF in order to apply for a mortgage. If you are not a resident of Portugal, you will need to provide a different identification number, such as a passport number. It is important to note that the specific requirements for obtaining a mortgage may vary depending on the lender and the type of mortgage you are seeking. It is always a good idea to check with the lender or a financial advisor to determine what documents and information you will need to provide in order to apply for a mortgage.
