If you have one do you still need to carry a passport?

Opinion and experience seems divided, so a bit of a straw poll

If you hold one and have been stopped by GNR orPSP was the card sufficient for them or did they want to see a passport too?

Thanks.

When Mrs OB & I got ours we asked SEF if we still needed to carry our passports and were told we didn't have to any more provided we were carrying the card.

A Portuguese issued 'residencia permanente' card, carries more weight with GNR transport brigade than a uk passport in my experience.
Unless you are illegally driving a uk registered vehicle that is !

Since I got mine, I've used it for everything a passport would normally be required for. Have produced it on numerous occasions, including for GNR traffic stops, never any problem at all.

It isn't recognised outside the country though - so eg if you ever hop across the border into Spain, however briefly, a passport is required.
