Get to know what will happen when the minor reaches the age of majority

According to Notice nº1/2022, from Banco de Portugal, Clients must update their personal information in the Bank. In Accounts whose holders are minors, they must regularize it when they reach the age of 18.

A partir do dia em que o menor faz 18 anos, e até que a Conta seja regularizada:
The legal guardian won’t be able to perform transactions with the Account
The former minor will be able to continue to use the Account, although limitations will be visible from the minor status.

How to regularize the Account?

It’s simple to update the Account:

The former minor must visit a Branch, if that’s the case, in the company of someone the former minor would like to be part of the Account.
Every person that would like to be a Holder of the Account must present:

Identification Document(s)
2. Proof of address (12 months validity)
3. Proof of employment situation (6 months validity)
