Sailing The Dream
Portugal, Lisbon - checking in and out
Checking in and out of Lisbon is in principle very easy, the marinas can arrange/assist for Customs Immigration to come to the office for the passport procedures and they inform the remaining authorities of the arrival and departure of any foreign vessel leaving to them the decision to come and inspect the boat or not.
Despite this, we usually don’t resort to the marina office assistance on contacting Customs Immigration because that obviously takes longer and requires scheduling. In reality, their office is just in the city side harbour entrance, there’s always someone on duty any time of the day or night and they are super efficient and nice, so we just pop into their office minutes before our departure and get our passports stamped out easily.
We usually have strange schedules when departing from Lisbon area because we don’t like to round the Cape of Sagres during dark hours when heading south and this way we get all done at our convenience.
