(1) "Conservatoria dos Registos Centrais" is the "Central Registrar's Office" where births, deaths, marriages, divorces of Portuguese nationals born, dead, etc. out of Portugal (case of Goa, for example) are registered. Passports are not issued at this office.

(2) "Servicos de Identificacao Civil" (usually called "Arquivo de Identificacao Civil") is the department which issues identity cards. There are "Servicos de Identificacao Civil" in every district of this country and in some other important cities. A birth certificate (and a marriage certificate, if the applicant is married) is a "sine qua non" requirement for applying for an identity card.

(3) "Governo Civil" is the entity which issues passports. There are 18 districts in continental Portugal, 3 in the Autonomous Region of the Azores and 1 in the Autonomous Region of Madeira, and any of the Civil Governments of these districts is entitled to issue passports.

Every citizen must have an identity card. Holding of a passport is not obligatory; but no one can obtain a passport without having an identity card.
