Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Portugal in Beijing. The Embassy’s mission is carried out in close cooperation with the Consulates General in Shanghai, Macau and Guangzhou. The Ambassador in Beijing is also accredited to Mongolia where there is an Honorary Consulate in Ulan Bator (Ulaanbaatar).
Portugal also has an Honorary Consulate in Hong Kong. The Embassy is able to provide consular advice or assistance to Portuguese citizens who are living or traveling in China or Mongolia, as well as to all people wishing to visit or develop business with Portugal.
The Iberian Peninsula was originally inhabited by two peoples known as the Iberians and the Celtiberians. A sub-group of these, living along the western coast, was known by classic historians as the 'Lusitanians', the traditional name sometimes given to the Portuguese in literature and the arts.
