1. Entry requirements in Portugal

Government of Portugal does not provide any limitations to enter Portugal, relieving travellers from all obligations. However, travellers are informed that new measures have been introduced to monitor COVID-19 virus only on flights departing from China.

2. COVID-19 Test Regulations in Portugal

From July 1st, 2022, passengers entering national territory (including the autonomous region of Azores and Madeira) are no longer required to present proof of a test with a negative result for COVID-19. However, please take note that Portuguese airports have a system for measuring body temperature on arrival. In case of fever, you may need to test for COVID-19 right at the airport.

It is therefore recommended, in the event of feverish symptoms, to contact the number 808 24 24, prior to go to a hospital or airport, describing your state of health for further instructions.

3. Face masks and social distancing

In Portugal is mandatory to wear a face mask in health care facilities. On the contrary, it is strongly recommended, but not compulsory, in public places, such as on means of transport, and other facilities. Please note that other regulations have been provided for accessing nursing homes or visiting hospitalised patients in Portugal.
