Ciple Exam 
Portuguese Citizenship  

Depending on individual circumstances, foreign nationals applying for Portuguese citizenship may be required to provide proof of their Portuguese language skills.  If the applicant has attended regular school or other recognised educational institutes in Portugal, the certificates issued by these institutes may suffice as proof of language ability.   However, if the applicant is unable to provide this type of evidence, he/she will need to pass the CIPLE (A2) test, which is run by the University of Lisbon and Instituto Camões and is accredited by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.    According to current legislation, A2 is the minimum level required as proof of knowledge of the Portuguese language to obtain Portuguese nationality.
