Portugal revokes travel ban for Brazilian tourists

21

Travelers from Brazil no longer need to be quarantined, but must have a negative Covid-19 test

Portugal announced on Wednesday that it will allow the entry of tourists from Brazil, almost 18 months after imposing a ban on non-essential travel in the South American country to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

Although Brazilians, who make up the largest expatriate community in Portugal, have been allowed access for reasons such as work, family or health, the lifting of the ban on tourism has long been awaited.

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

Travelers from Brazil are now no longer required to be quarantined, but must have a negative Covid-19 test. The same rule applies to visitors from Great Britain, according to the Portuguese government.
