Cross-border payments in Portugal

Fintech Software

Payment or e-money institutions based abroad may render their services in Portugal, subject to prior authorisation and registry with the BoP. The applicable requirements and procedures may vary according to the state of origin, as entities based in EU Member States can choose to render their services in Portugal through a branch registered in Portugal, through authorised agents based in Portugal or under a licence granting them the freedom to provide services.1

Should the applying entity be based in a third-country state, it shall incorporate a branch or, alternatively, incorporate a subsidiary legal entity in the Portuguese territory (by following the relevant, though more demanding, procedure).1
