How I can receive my NIF password for the Financas tax portal?

When receive your NIF, we check your application form, if you choose that you need a password, we request your password from the Portuguese tax office in the next 24 working hours.
The Portuguese tax office sends your password by regular mail and typically takes about 3-4 weeks* (to reach your tax representative).
The password that tax office sends us a physical copy of your password for your Portal das Finanças access is simply a temporary password.
Once we receive your password, we will send you it via email along with detailed instructions on how to change your password. This means that you will be able to set your own password and your tax representative will not have online access to your account.
