Yes the green and maroon passports will not be recognized anymore only the E-passports with International Civil Aviation Organization logo below the word Pasaporte. By next year the green and maroon passports will be phase out so even if your passport is not yet expired you have to go to DFA to have it renewed so there will be no hassle when you have to travel next year. Those green machine readable ready and maroon machine readable passports has been slowly replaced by biometric or E passports, this biometric passport has been already introduced last 2009. I will have to check my passport if it was the biometric one or not otherwise I will have to renew it this year. Anyway, we can also apply or renew our passport online.
