Madeira has slightly lowered the age at which British children are required to provide a negative COVID test.

The Portuguese island requires all arrivals to provide proof they’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID or take a negative test.

The test must be a PCR taken within 72 hours of travel to Madeira, which is on the UK’s green watchlist.

Previously, Madeira didn’t require children under the age of 13 to be tested, but it has since changed the rules to exempt children only up to and including 11, meaning those aged 12 must now also take a test.
