According to original text of Decree Law 30A/2015, on its preamble, the great majority of Sephardim descendant of Spain are considered, at the same time, descendants of Portugal, because of after their expulsion from Spain in 1492, most of them were refugees in Portugal, where they were also expelled from in 1496.
Portuguese government approved in 2014 this Law and regulations were approved on 29 January 2015 by the D.L. 30A/2015. Requirements to be fulfilled are:
- Language exam is not compulsory
- Constitution knowledge exam is not compulsory

Portugal considers the term Sephardim as its former wide and flexible sense, and it can be certified by specific reports that all Sephardim Jews went to Portugal, according to several historical references.
The core point of the file is to obtain Sephardic certification from Lisbon or Oporto communities, which have been cooperating with us efficiently.
In order to obtain that certification, we must provide certain documents. Once we hold it, that certificate is submitted among all others on the Ministry of Justice to acquire nationality within eight or nine months maximum, according to current terms of demand.
