Our relationship with Portugal
New Zealand has a friendly bilateral relationship with Portugal, which has been enhanced in recent years through shared peacekeeping work in Timor-Leste. We share a commitment to support Timor-Leste's reconstruction and development.
The Portuguese were among the first immigrants to New Zealand in the 19th and 20th centuries. Around 1,000 Portuguese travellers visit New Zealand each year.
Information on New Zealand’s trade relationship with Portugal is available on the New Zealand Trade Dashboard(external link).
As Portugal is a European Union member state, the EU-NZ FTA will apply to trade between Portugal and New Zealand following ratification and entry into force.
