Vision Egypt News: According to the Jewish Telegraph Agency, Portugal has granted citizenship to 23,000 descendants of Sephardic Jews out of nearly 76,000 applications submitted since 2015, under the 2015 law granting citizenship to descendants of Sephardic Jews.

The agency noted that about 25,000 applications were submitted in 2019 alone, and many of them have yet to be processed.

The number of Israelis applying for a Portuguese passport increased, after Portugal approved a law to grant the Jews a "historic correction" because of "their expulsion from Spain and Portugal following the fall of Andalusia in 1492.

Since the end of April, 45,086 Jews from around the world, including 32,622 Jews from Israel, who make up 72 percent, have applied for a Portuguese passport.

The report stated that the applicants of these Israeli Jews are the largest group among the Jews in the world, followed by the Turkish Jews, with 5,069 applicants for a Portuguese passport, while the Jews in Brazil ranked third, with 2,558 applications for the same purpose.
