Aberto is the incantation of a charm which opens doors.


Queenie Goldstein tried to use this spell to gain entry to the office of Percival Graves after a regular Unlocking Charm failed to work. However, this spell also failed, leading Queenie to speculate that Graves had locked the door with an advanced spell.[1]


In Portuguese, aberto is the word for the adjective, "open"[2]. Interestingly, this spell and Portaberto share a similar etymology, suggesting that the two door-opening spells may be related to each other.
