As a state member of the European Union, Portugal functions with the provisions stipulated by the Tobacco Products Directive (2014/40/EU), a solid legislation which addresses to all EU countries in matters of how the tobacco market should legally operate. It is good to know that since 2006, Portugal is a member of World Health Organization and agreed on the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.

What kind of tobacco shop can you register in Portugal?

Depending on the type of business a foreign or a local entrepreneur wants to establish, there are varied choices through which tobacco products can be sold, such as:
•    importing cigarettes and other tobacco items from the home country in Portugal;
•    opening a tobacco kiosk in the main shopping centers in Portugal;
