Access to the credit intermediary activity depends on authorisation and registration with Banco de Portugal.
The request for authorisation must be submitted by completing the electronic form available on this website.
Banco de Portugal shall notify the interested party of the decision on the application for authorisation within a maximum period of 90 days of receipt of such request. However, if Banco de Portugal deems it necessary to request additional clarifications, the deadline for notification of the interested party may be extended up to 180 days from the date of initial submission of the request.
