Arrivals from the UK to Portugal will have to quarantine for 14 days unless they can prove they’ve been double jabbed.

The new rule comes into effect at 00:01 on Monday, 28 June and will be in place until at least 23:59 on 11 July, although it can be revised at any time.

British visitors must provide proof of vaccination carried out in the UK.  The vaccination must have been completed at least 14 days before travel.

Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the rule and don’t need to take a test.

The rules don’t apply to Madeira, which was put on the UK’s green travel list last week.

The Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office has updated its advice to say: “From 00h01 on 28 June, if you have travelled from the UK to mainland Portugal, you must quarantine for 14 days in the place you are staying or at a place indicated by the Portuguese health authority, unless you can show you have been vaccinated with an EU approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to travel. You must be able to show you have completed the vaccination programme.”
