Spain and Portugal in 15 days
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:
