Rejected petition Urge the Portuguese Consulate to renew expired passports for Jersey residents

The Portuguese Consulate in Jersey is refusing

Portuguese nationals are effectively trapped on
the Island if their existing documents have
expired. This is a failing by the
Consulate, as representatives of the
Portuguese government, to meet their
obligations under Article 2:2 of Protocol 4 of
the European Convention on Human Rights,
which states "everyone shall be free to leave any
Renewals have not been processed since February and renewal applications are being refused indefinitely, trapping applicants in Jersey for over a year
