Portugal to Allow UK & EU Tourists from Today

Portugal to allow UK holidaymakers in green-list reciprocation.

The Portuguese foreign ministry has announced that British tourists will be able to visit Portugal despite the mainland being in a state of calamity until May 30th. The announcement comes after the UK green-listed Portugal for travel leading to a boom in flights and bookings.

There had been some confusion over whether Portugal would ease restrictions for UK travelers, but the new announcement clarifies that holidaymakers will be allowed to enter with a negative PCR test before departure. Portugal is one of only a handful of countries that the UK government has green-listed — requiring no quarantine when returning — and UK tourists are one of Portugal’s biggest markets so the decision is not wholly unexpected.

Portugal also announced that tourists from European countries with a low infection rate (fewer than 500 cases per 100,000 people) can enter with a negative PCR test. The same holds for Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland.
