Still not sure where to go this half term? We might be able to solve your dilemma – Portugal has opened up its borders to vaccinated British travellers once again. Whether you’re looking for gorgeous scenery, a vibrant city break, or just slightly warmer climes, this magnificent country can offer you all that and more. 

So, what are the travel rules and what will you need to get there? 

      • As of Monday 7th February, you no longer need a negative test result to enter Portugal as long as you are fully vaccinated 
      • You’ll need to have been fully vaccinated less than 270 days ago – if your last vaccine was before last May, you’ll need to get a booster before travelling 
      • You will also have to fill out a passenger locator form

Don’t forget that if you’re not fully vaccinated, you'll still need a negative COVID-19 test result to enter the country – either a PCR test taken 72 hours before travel or an antigen lateral flow test 48 hours before travel. These rules don’t apply to children under the age of 12. With various different ways to get these tests, including home delivery and in-person at a test centre, we’re sure to have a convenient solution for you.
