Measures Lisbon, Porto & Algarve

Updated January 13th
(These measures do not apply to the Portuguese islands. See here the measures in place on Madeira island.)


The Portuguese government has been taking all necessary public health measures to protect the entire population. The analysis of the evolution of the outbreak is constant and implementation of new measures will be carried out whenever necessary.


The following measures are in effect:


- Mandatory negative test upon arrival in Portugal (antigen test 48 hours before boarding or PCR test 72 hours before boarding), even for those who have a digital vaccination certificate. Self-tests are not valid and children under 12 do not need to present test;


- All passengers need to fill online a Passenger Locator Card (individually) at, after check-in and before departure time;


- Mandatory use of masks in closed spaces;


- Mandatory EU Covid Digital Certificate in all modes or complete vaccination certificate or negative RT-PCR test or Rapid negative antigen test when accessing: tourist establishments and local accommodation, restaurants, cultural shows, events with reserved seats, gyms;


- Mandatory negative test or recovery certificate, except for those who have already been vaccinated with a booster dose of the vaccine for at least 14 days, when accessing: big events, bars and clubs, visits to care and nursing homes and health facilities;


- Prohibition of alcohol consumption on the street.


At PortoBay HOTELS, EU Covid Digital Certificate in all modes or complete vaccination certificate or negative RT-PCR test or Rapid negative antigen test should be presented at check-in, being therefore valid for the entire stay, namely in accessing the facilities and restaurants of the respective hotel. 


If you need to take a PCR or antigen test, our reception teams can assist you.
