Frequently Asked Questions

What is a NIF?

The NIF (Número de Identificação Fiscal) is your taxpayer identification number in Portugal. The NIF is required for a variety of everyday activities such as opening a bank account, getting a phone subscription, and signing up for health insurance. The NIF is sometimes referred to as the Número de Contribuinte.

How long does it take to receive my NIF?

Usually, you can expect to receive your NIF within the current estimated turnaround time. This can take longer if the Tax Office is experiencing delays. We do not offer expedited services.

Who will be my fiscal representative?

We connect you with a Portuguese lawyer who will be your fiscal (tax) representative and request a NIF on your behalf.

Do you offer ongoing fiscal representation?

Yes, but our fiscal representation services are limited to acquiring your NIF and forwarding any messages from the tax office until you assign a new fiscal rep (charged at a rate of $150 USD per year). Learn more about fiscal representation.

How do I get a NIF for my child?

Simply fill out the order form with your child's details. If your child is under 18 years old, there are a few additional documents that you will need to submit. Both parents will also need to sign the Power of Attorney. Learn more.

Which nationalities does Bordr support for the NIF service?

We support all nationalities for our NIF service.
