The children of a Portuguese mother or Portuguese father born in Portuguese territory;

– (Verifying the existence of bonds of effective connection to the Portuguese community, for the purposes established in this specific case (nationality by the grandfather or grandmother), implies the Government’s acknowledgement of the relevance of such ties, namely by his or her sufficient knowledge of the Portuguese language and the existence of regular contacts with the Portuguese territory, and it depends on the lack of conviction, with the judgement made absolute, for the practice of an offence punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 3 years or more, according to the Portuguese law).
