COVID UPDATES

Starting on April 22, 2022: ​

The number of COVID-19 cases is now low and manageable from a world public health point of view. The vaccination campaign in Portugal proved effective and progressed fast, and, above all, people's respect and perseverance showed how we could endure the unimaginable. From today, the following changes apply: 

  • Mask usage is now only mandatory in public spaces with especially vulnerable people,e.g., health facilities, elderly homes, integrated health care units, and spaces with big crowds, such as public transport

  • The passenger locator form is also revoked, and COVID-19 testing rules are no longer mandated (by law)

  • COVID-19 recovery or full vaccination with reinforcement dose certificates are no longer required to visit retirement homes or hospitalized patients in health care facilities

  • Mask usage indoors where it is currently required
