Welcome Message

Boas Vindas

Please be very welcome to the website of the Embassy of Portugal in Tehran. Here we will be able to find some useful information on Portugal and Iran in three different languages: Portuguese, Persian and English.

Our relations with this great country, cradle of an ancient and magnificent civilization, has more than 500 years now. Our role is to consolidate and deepen this centuries old interaction and promote a better reciprocal knowledge between Portuguese and Iranians and foster the bilateral cooperation between both States in matters of common interest.

I do hope this web platform may help us in that regard.

Be very welcome all of you!
