After more than two years into the Coronavirus pandemic in Portugal the situation continues to improve. In many ways, the country is beginning to return to normal and international visitors are welcome.

See the list of conditions below.


Travellers who present a valid international certificate for full vaccination against COVID-19, issued in selected countries, are exempt from testing requirements.

Proof of vaccination must be in the form of an EU Digital Certificate or issued by a third country, under reciprocal conditions. The final dose must have been administered at least 14 days before departure and not more than 9 months (270 days). Thereafter, the vaccine certificate must reflect that a vaccine booster has been administered.


Travellers are not required to self-quarantine on arrival in Portugal from the UK. Exceptions and other rules may apply. Please check with official government sources for details.


Non-vaccinated travelers are required to provide proof of a negative RT-PCR test, taken within the previous 72 hours of departure. Alternatively, proof of a negative rapid antigen test can be presented, taken within the previous 24 hours of departure.

Travellers may instead provide documentation of having recovered from COVID-19. This must be provided via an EU Digital Certificate or issued by a third country, under reciprocal conditions. Further information can be found here


An online 'passenger locator form' must be completed after check-in and before departure. The QR code generated can be presented in paper or digital format.
