Veteran passes

Combat veterans are exempt from paying for passes

Under the measures defined under the Veterans' Statute, passes on public transports are free of charge for all veterans who hold the ex-combatants card and the widow and widower of an ex-veteran.

These passes are loaded into the Navegante card for Lisbon metropolitan area, the Andante card for the Porto metropolitan area or the CP card for the remaining Intermunicipal Communities, according to the type of pass desired. The applicant only pays for the cost of the card.

These passes are valid for 12 months and must be renewed annually with the presentation of documentation.
