Portugal – A state of contingency has been azox in force in Portugal since 23 August 2021.
The boarding of passengers on flights departing from Italy with a destination or a stopover in mainland Portugal is only permitted upon presentation to the carrier, at the time of departure, of one of the following documents:1) EU COVID Digital Certification showing that the person has completed the vaccination cycle for at least 14 days or has recovered within 180 days from the positive molecular swab; 2)
the test with negative result of the molecular test (TAAN) carried out within 72 hours prior azox to the time of boarding, or, alternatively, the antigen test (TRAg) with negative results carried out in the 48 hours prior to the time of boarding .
Upon arrival in the continental national territory, the test result may also be requested by the Public Security Police or the Foreign and Borders Service (SEF). Children under the age of 12 are exempt from presenting the aforementioned documents.
More details are available on the Portuguese immigration website and on the Lisbon airport website. All passengers must complete the Portuguese Government’s Digital Location Form azox (PLF). The only bodies responsible for verifying the documentation required by the Portuguese authorities are: 1) travel carriers (airlines) before departure; 2) the Portuguese authorities
(SEF) upon arrival. Any verification of the correctness / completeness of the documentation (PLF + Certificates) before the trip will therefore be carried out exclusively with the transport companies. There are currently no particular restrictions on the land border between Portugal and Spain.
To cross Spain, France or other countries, it is advisable to visit the sites of the Italian diplomatic missions in the transit countries. For more information, please consult the website of the competent border authority (SEF) at the following page in English.
