Please be advised that applications sent by mail do not guarantee a faster processing time than applications delivered in person. Applications will be processed as per the queues at VFS and the visa Section of the Embassy of Portugal in DC.

We call your attention for the fact that applications for D type visa for Portugal are on very high demand and it will take time to process all of them. Applicants are advised to expect a longer waiting time in obtaining a decision on their application. You will be notified once the application has been processed by the Embassy of Portugal in Washington DC.

Please, be advised, that contacting the Embassy immediately, or repeatedly, will only provoke delays, as resources will have to be diverted from visa processing to answering emails and phone calls.
