The state of emergency in Portugal was lifted on April 30th, and the border with Spain was relaxed on May 1st.
Despite the relaxation of restrictions, tourism is nevertheless discouraged. The Telegraph announced that sales between the two countries are booming.
Portugal plans to open its borders with the United Kingdom on May 17, the same day that the United Kingdom has provided the go-ahead for travel between the two countries on its hand.
According to Condé Nast Traveler, it is hoped that U.S. and other third-party travelers with strong vaccine rates will be welcomed in shortly after.
