According to the Oslo agreement between Israel and PLO, the Palestinian Embassies and Missions abroad do not have the authority to issue passports neither do renew, extend or amend any kind of passports issued by the Palestinian Authority. However, DMOP will advise and facilitate this process for applicants.

Foreign nationals who are required a visa to travel to Israel and would like to visit the state of Palestine (the west Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza), which is under the Israeli occupation, must contact the Israeli embassy in Lisbon for this purpose due to the fact that the Palestinian National Authority does not have the control over its own border crossing.

Gaza Strip Border Crossing:
Those who intend to travel to Gaza Strip through Rafah Border Crossing must contact the Egyptian embassy in Lisbon to obtain the Egyptian Authority‘s consent before planning their trip.
