To get a birth certificate in Portugal, you can follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Civil Registry Office (Conservatória do Registo Civil) in the district where you were born.
  2. Bring your identification document, such as a passport or ID card.
  3. Fill out an application form for a birth certificate (Certidão de Nascimento).

Alternatively, you can also request a birth certificate online or through the Citizen's Portal (Portal do Cidadão) using your digital certificate or ID card.

If you're not in Portugal, you can contact the Portuguese Embassy or Consulate in your country for assistance with obtaining a birth certificate.
