Portugal holidays: FCDO issues update on tightened quarantine rules for UK travellers

The FCDO explains: “Mainland Portugal is currently in a ‘state of emergency.’ “The Portuguese government has put in place a series of measures to control the spread of the virus, including a national lockdown.

“You are instructed to stay at home, except to buy food and other essential items; to go to work exceptionally, if your professional activity is not compatible with working from home; to go to a hospital, health centre or dental clinic; to go to a veterinary clinic or walk a pet; to carry out caring or similar duties or to take short periods of exercise outdoors (individually, not in groups).”

Despite the latest quarantine rules, however, Portugal’s minister for tourism has said Britons could be welcomed back in time for summer.

Rita Marques told the BBC: “I do believe that Portugal will soon allow restriction-free travel, not only for vaccinated people but those who are immune or who test negative.
