    Portugal with random COVID passport controls on Valenca-Tui border starting Wednesday (Dec 1st 2021)

    Yes, but I have a feeling they will accept any proof of vaccination you have (although I don’t know this). The EU COVID passport is what is mostly seen around here, so that is what is used in these news articles…

    Portugal with random COVID passport controls on Valenca-Tui border starting Wednesday (Dec 1st 2021)

    It seems very strict to ask for this all of a sudden. I am sure this new rule will become clearer over the next few days..

    Portugal with random COVID passport controls on Valenca-Tui border starting Wednesday (Dec 1st 2021)

    It seems that this will happen on the Portuguese side. Random controls of people crossing the border (from Spain to Portugal I presume). You need a COVID passport to be able to pass. €800,- in fine if you try to cross with no COVID passport. Added: Re-reading the article it actually seems that...

    Casa Ivar Dear all

    Dear all... Just a few words from me in Santiago, this time typed up and not in video format. As I write this, there are about 200 people on the forum search through old threads and creating new ones. (you can see how many are on at any given time here: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/ )...

    Can I Send My Parcel From Outside The Eu To Santiago?

    You may have to plastic wrap it (kitchen wrap from the supermarket works). They should accept it (people have sent suitcases to me with them before), but it is not "normal" so you might find that the clerk looks at you strangely. Don't know what prices DPD will give you, but they get delivered...

    Can I Send My Parcel From Outside The Eu To Santiago?

    I had some pilgrims sending a big bike bag from Portugal with them and it was a pain in the %&%%·$/. The issues is that the delivery company they use to deliver in Santiago is not very great.. at least before the pandemic. Have you checked prives at the post office in Portugal? I know...
