Cidadania Portuguesa e a convolação

Você sabia que a nacionalidade portuguesa adquirida através dos avós, não pode ser transferida para filhos ou cônjuge? Conheça agora a convolação e entenda como aplicar.

Existem duas maneiras de adquirir a cidadania portuguesa, por atribuição ou naturalização. A diferença é que o processo por atribuição é para filhos de portugueses, enquanto a naturalização é quando o aplicante é neto de cidadão português.

É fato que, se você adquiriu sua cidadania portuguesa por naturalização, através do artigo 6.4 da Lei da Nacionalidade de Portugal, ou seja, pelos seus avós portugueses, você NÃO PODE transferir esta nacionalidade para sua família.

Existe um processo chamado convolação que permite que a cidadania por naturalização seja convertida para atribuição e só assim permite que a nacionalidade seja transmitida através do matrimônio e para as futuras gerações.


transitivo indireto
mudar (de opinião, de sentimento, de partido etc.).
“c. para a dissidência”
transitivo indireto
mudar (de estado civil ou de foro).
“c. para outro foro”

Convolar siginifica – basicamente – mudar!

Neste caso, o aplicante modifica sua naturalização para uma nacionalidade de origem, passando assim a ter a cidadania por atribuição e o direito de transmitir este status para filhos e cônjuge.

Para fazer a convolação, o aplicante deve esperar o processo de naturalização ser finalizado pelas autoridades portuguesas e então começar o processo de alteração. Depois disso, o caminho está aberto para a aplicação da cidadania da família.
