Portugal entry requirements from the UK


With travel restrictions easing across Europe, a holiday to the Algarve is now even easier. Portugal has the highest vaccination rate in Europe with 84% of the population vaccinated and as a result has reduced its own entry requirements.

The new entry requirements from 1st September are:

  • Any citizen departing from the UK can enter Mainland Portugal, as long as they have a test (PCR 72h before or Antigen 48h before). Children >12 don’t need a test.
  • This means that you don’t have to have a vaccination certificate . As long as you have a test you can enter Portugal and you don’t have to quarantine.
  • Anyone with an EU certificate does not need a test to enter Portugal
