Electronic passports

Learn here how to use electronic passports and avoid queues.

All European Union citizens aged 18 years or over holding an electronic passport can use the electronic border control devices at the main Portuguese airports. 

If you are travelling within the Schengen area, avoid queues at passport control by using the RAPID - Automatic Recognition of Passengers Identified by Documents system.

  • Insert your electronic passport in the device, open and facing down. Wait while it is scanned;
  • When the door opens you can remove the passport and move forwards;
  • Place yourself on top of the yellow circle on the floor and look face on directly into the mirror;
