My girlfriend, who is a Brazilian citizen resident in Portugal, came to visit me in London, and she managed to come in with her visitor visa (6months) so she decided to stay for more than 3 months. Then, coronavirus happened, cancelled flights and all...
Now her passport is about to expire. Can she return to Portugal with her passport that's is valid for less than a month (from the boarding date that we are looking to book the ticket), heading back to the country where she's been living for the last 10 years so she can renew it there?
The Brazilian consulate here in the UK is on a "emergencies only" working scheme, don't know if that would be her case, so we're not able to renew her passaport here at this moment.
She lives in Portugal (But she still has her nationality process going, she still has a Brazilian passport, so she has to renew it at a brazilian embassy/consulate.). The Brazilian consulate in Portugal can renew her passport as their working schemes are different there.
She has a visa, ("Cartao de residencia", a residence card in a literal translation), and she can offer the air company proof of address and all (bank statements etc...) The only thing is her actual passport, as her nationality process still underway she cant yet get a Portuguese passport, but she's been living there for more than 10 years now (The whole process for her nationality was delayed because of stupid family decisions).
