How you can request password on

If you have never requested a password on the Finanças website, you must first register on the portal. For this, you will need to complete the registration form. On the home page you must click on "Register" (Registar-se) at the top right.


In the form, you must indicate your personal data:

  • Taxpayer number (NIF);
  • Tax address.

You will also need to define a security question. This is important because you will need it if you forget or lose your password.

After filling in this information, click at the bottom right on “Register” (Registar ”). Once the registration is complete, you will automatically receive two codes, one by SMS (to secure the mobile phone number) and the other by email (to confirm the email address) You will then receive a physical letter to your tax address, which will also contain a code.


As soon as this mail reaches you, confirm the two previous codes you received. Simply go to "Confirmation by e-mail and telephone" (Confirmação de e-mail e Telefone) on the Finanças portal. The definitive password to access the Portuguese tax authorities is sent via CTT (and never by e-mail) within an average of 14 working days. If you had a representative, it will be delivered to him.

The sending of the final password is always made to the tax address which is registered with the Portuguese tax authorities: it is therefore important to make sure that the address in the registers of the tax and customs administration is up to date.
