UK tourists can enter Portugal from Monday as Covid restrictions end

The Guardian | Visit Portugal says anyone entering the country will have to have an RT-PCR test 72 hours before departure.

Portugal is to reopen to British visitors with negative PCR test results on Monday, despite the government extending a nationwide state of emergency until the end of the month as the country continues to recover from a third wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

The announcement came a week after the UK government added Portugal to the “green list” of countries to which Britons can travel from 17 May without the need to quarantine on their return.

In a much-anticipated statement on Friday afternoon, the Portuguese government confirmed that British tourists would be allowed to enter Portugal from midnight on Monday.
