In November 2016, I had the honor of presenting my Letters of Credence to His Excellency the President of the Republic of Turkey, as Ambassador of Portugal to Turkey.
Having arrived about six months ago to this beautiful country, a cradle of civilization, so replete of history, and place of such sublime landscapes, it is my privilege to address this greeting message and convey my sincere appreciation to all visitors of this website, namely my compatriots, Portuguese residents and Portuguese Citizens only transiting through Turkey, and all Turkish friends, either official entities, or members of the civil society.
The Portuguese Embassy in Ankara brings Portugal to Turkey, but also takes Turkey to Portugal. My aim will be to work tirelessly with a view to strengthen the bonds of friendship between the two people and the two States, both located at the ends of the European continent: Portugal delimiting Europe to the west, against the Atlantic, and Turkey demarcating it to the east, by the Sea of Marmara.
Relevant information concerning the Portuguese and Turkish political, economical, educational, and cultural bilateral agenda, as well as consular matters, will be released on this website.
Likewise, investment opportunities in Portugal, a country that is very committed to welcoming Turkish entrepreneurs and investors, will be given a particular attention on this page.
I personally, and with the aid of the proficient team of the Portuguese Embassy in Turkey, the network of Honorary Consulates (Istanbul, Izmir and Antalya), will always be at your disposal, working hard to jointly honor Portugal, serve the Portuguese community in Turkey and deepen the bilateral relationship with the Turkish state.
In addition to our Facebook page, this platform aims to become a space of exchange and a point of contact. Help us improve its content, with your comments and suggestions.
The Portuguese culture, the history, the incomparable landscapes, and the hospitality of our people are only some features that portray Portugal as an appealing, unique, and fascinating country.
