When you ask for the card, you have to give an original colour photograph and show the originals of:

  • an ID document (ID Card, Citizen's Card or Passport);
  • the pensioner card or a document issued by social security proving you are a retiree or pensioner
  • document proving the amount of the pension or retirement benefit, issued by social security, “Caixa Nacional de Pensões”, Mutual Aid Association, Department of International Relations or Social Security Conventions;
  • a tax declaration about other incomes (even if no other income is declared) or income tax settlement receipt.

Apart from presenting the originals, you also have to deliver copies of all the documents except the ID document.

The card has a fixed requisition price of €3.00 and it is valid for six years.
