Portugal: Quarantine-free travel for 3 countries citizens

 

Citizens of Cyprus, Sweden, and Lithuania can now visit Portugal without having to comply with quarantine requirements upon arrival, as the country’s officials have relaxed the precaution after assessing that these three countries have lately recorded fewer COVID-19 cases of infection.

 

According to statistics given by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, Portugal’s government has revised the list of nations subject to quarantine restrictions based on their COVID-19 infection rate (ECDC). The list will be active until June 14.

Cyprus, Sweden, and Lithuania, according to a government statement, have had an incidence rate of COVID-19 infections of less than 500 cases per 100,000 people in the last two weeks.

 

Flights from South Africa, India, and Brazil will be allowed to operate for critical reasons, according to the notice; however, travelers travelling from these countries will be required to observe quarantine standards upon entering Portugal.

 

In addition, on the advice of the European Union, Portugal’s government declared that essential travel from all countries deemed safe would be permitted.

 

Citizens traveling to Portugal by air will be needed to submit a positive Coronavirus test result that is no more than 72 hours old in order to enter the country. They face a punishment of between €500 and €2,000 if they do not comply with such a requirement.

“The restricting air traffic restrictions apply equally to passengers and crew of cruise ships embarking and disembarking in ports located on mainland national territory. According to the statement, “these measures may be amended at any moment based on the evolution of the epidemiological situation.”

 

The country’s tourist website, Visit Portugal, confirmed the decision, clarifying that all visitors traveling from the United Kingdom must provide proof of a negative test upon arrival.
