Portugal tightens rules for UK tourists

Published on : Thursday, July 1, 2021

Portugal has recently announced that it will now require people arriving from the UK to quarantine for 14 days, unless they can prove they have been fully inoculated against Covid-19 at least two weeks previously with a vaccine authorised by the EU.

In legislation published in the state gazette last night and which took effect at midnight, the government added the UK to the list of countries travellers from which must quarantine “at home or a place indicated by the health authorities”. Brazil, South Africa, India and Nepal were already on the list, but the exception made for people who are inoculated against Covid-19 only applies to the UK.

Travellers from the UK are deemed to be fully inoculated if they have received one dose of a single-dose vaccine, two doses of vaccine against Covid-19, or just one dose of a two-dose vaccine schedule for people deemed to have recovered from the disease, if their vaccination certificate indicates the schedule is complete after just one dose. For all countries on the list, an exception is also made for participants in specified sporting competitions being held in June and July.
