Travel to portugal covid


Traveling in Europe is now possible in many of its states and, fortunately, Portugal is on the list of countries that allow entry to tourism. After a first opening in July 2020 and a subsequent closure of long months, our neighboring country has reopened to travelers who want to visit, provided that a number of requirements are met. Below we are going to show you what these requirements are, both for mainland Portugal and for the islands of Azores and Madeira.

The government has launched the “Clean & Safe” seal, which certifies that the business that receives it adheres to the measures stipulated by the authorities and receives periodic audits to verify compliance. You will find this safety seal in restaurants, hotels, museums and other related businesses.

Now that you know what the scenario for traveling to Portugal is like, you may be asking yourself questions like “Where do I go?”, “What can I do?” or “What should I not miss?”. From IATI we launch you these proposals:

Vaccinations to enter portugal

Portugal is an ideal destination to disconnect for a couple of days, a week or even a month. Its surface is home to everything a traveler could wish for in a tourist country, a combination of elements that makes travel to Portugal never go out of fashion. The mainland offers one of Europe’s most charming cities, Lisbon, surrounded by beaches, forests and mountain ranges. While the coast is a delight for surfers and lovers of uncongested beaches, Porto and its wineries, the inland villages and its many monasteries are also very interesting on trips to Portugal.

As a negative point to note that, although it is part of its charm, Lisbon is a bit dirty and neglected, with areas almost in ruins, and also full of tourists in high season. However, these factors in travel to Portugal will be compensated by the friendliness of its people, with whom, in most cases, it is easy to understand each other as language is not a big problem. Also, the food is plentiful and tasty, but sometimes you miss a little more variety and it is not always easy to find good restaurants.

France has suspended Friday flights from Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia and Eswatini (former Swaziland) immediately and for at least 48 hours after the discovery of a new and worrying variant of the coronavirus.

“These measures seek to protect against the arrival of this virus,” said Health Minister Olivier Véran, who recalled that it is a new variant that spreads rapidly but that for the moment there are few cases.

For its part, the Dutch government has also decided this Friday to suspend all flights from southern African countries, although in this case, without detailing the duration of this suspension of air traffic.
