Portugal lifts Covid-19 travel ban on tourists from Brazil

Lisbon – Portugal on Wednesday (Sept 1) said it would allow entry for tourists from Brazil.

Travellers from Brazil now no longer need to quarantine but must provide a negative COVID-19 test. The same rule applies to visitors from Britain, according to the government.

Portugal is now open to tourists from the European Union who present the bloc’s digital COVID-19 certificate, as well as the United States, from where visitors must show a negative test result on arrival.

Travellers from nations such as Japan, Australia, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, Singapore and Canada will also be able to travel to Portugal if they provide a negative test.

Visitors from Nepal, India and South Africa are still required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival and must only be travelling for essential reasons.

Portugal has lifted most restrictions with a three-stage plan, supported by a speedy and efficient vaccination rollout. 

There is a ban of almost 18 months on non-essential travel between Portugal and Brazil due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
