Portugal changes travel entry rules affecting thousands of Britons this summer

Britons travelling to the Azores “must present proof that you have been fully vaccinated when you check-in for your flight”.

Travellers can use the UK Covid Pass to prove their vaccination status.

The foreign travel advice explained that “if you’re fully vaccinated and your airline allows you to travel to the Azores without proof of your vaccination status, you will have to take a COVID-19 test at your own expense at the airport or port on arrival”.

If passengers are not fully vaccinated, they will need to show proof of a negative PCR test (taken no more than 72 hours before boarding), a rapid lateral flow test (taken no more than 24 hours before boarding) or valid evidence of recent recovery from COVID-19 on departure to the Azores.
