Good day. I would like to make an inquiry about applying for a Portuguese passport for my son. His grandparents are both citizens, as is his father. However, his father has absconded, but I am in touch with my son's grandmother. Can you please email me with all the relevant steps and documents needed, as well as any further information I will require to move forward? Much appreciated.
