Portuguese new rules for non-essential flights


Active Member
Hi all
Good News!!!!
Email translation from the Secretary of State for Tourism received today

At the request of the Secretary of State for Tourism, we now transmit the following communication:
"As of tomorrow, with the opening to non-essential flights by the British and Europeans from the Schengen area (except high-risk countries), we have entered a new phase in the deflation plan, and it is very important to continue to ensure strict compliance with the rules, now also by all those who visit our country. In this sense, we would be very grateful to you for collaborating in the dissemination of the following essential rules:
1. The use of a mask by persons aged 10 and over is mandatory for access, circulation or permanence in public spaces and roads whenever the physical distance recommended by health authorities proves to be impractical.
2. The consumption of alcoholic beverages in open spaces with public access and public roads is prohibited, except as open terraces for the catering options and the like licensed for this purpose.
3. In the period after 9:00 pm and until 6:00 am only the consumption of alcoholic beverages is allowed in a catering meal and the like, either inside or on the terraces, within the scope of the meal service.
4. The catering standards are closed at 10:30 pm, except for those that are in commercial establishments and do not have an autonomous and independent entrance from the outside, which, on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, close at 7:00 pm . In order to ensure that Portugal remains a safe tourist destination and appreciated by all who visit us, the airlines will allow the boarding of flights from flights to or from mainland Portugal by presenting, at the time of departure, proof of carrying out a molecular test by RT -PCR for screening for infection by SARS-CoV-2 with a negative result, performed within 72 hours prior to the time of embarkation. "
Best regards,
The president Vitor silva Regional Tourism Authority of Alentejo and Ribatejo Tel. (+351) 284 313 540 | E-mail:"
