Why does a minor need a NIF number in Portugal?

In Portugal, minors (individuals under the age of 18), are required to have a NIF number in order to enrol in schools, creche, educational, training programs, or day care.

If a minor needs a NIF number, they can apply for one by contacting the Portuguese tax authorities or through one of our partners. They may be required to provide certain documents, such as proof of identity and proof of residence, to obtain a NIF number. In some cases, a parent or guardian may need to provide consent for a minor to obtain a NIF number.

Lucky for you we compare the best companies that offer NIF services. You can just apply online and get your NIF number with in days.
